The Ensemblist podcast, created by Broadway performers Nikka Graff Lanzarone and Mo Brady, will celebrate its first anniversary with a live show at New York City's Birdland Jazz Club on Monday, June 16.
The one-night-only performance will feature songs and stories from a roster of Broadway artists including Tony-winning choreographer Christopher Gattelli (Newsies), Ariana Debose (Motown: The Musical), Rachel Bay Jones (Pippin), Alysha Umphress (Beaches), Daniel Watts (After Midnight), and a special appearance by Nick Cearley and Lauren Molina of The Skivvies. In addition to musical presentations, the guest performers will be interviewed live onstage to share some of their most notable "ensemblist" experiences.
The Ensemblist offers an inside look at the backstage experiences of Broadway performers. New episodes of the podcast can be downloaded every two weeks through the iTunes store by searching for "The Ensemblist." Episodes can be also be streamed on Stitcher Radio, TuneIn, and downloaded directly from Podbean at theensemblist.podbean.com.
