In this episode: 1) Sara and Norma discuss the news of Deaf West’s Spring Awakening revival (4:45), 2) rank the Hedwig promo photos and celebrate Taye Diggs’ arrival (12:00), and 3) discuss stage violence, realism, and how Gloria and Punk Rock scared the sh*t out of us (17:30).

There are a TON of spoilers in here, so don’t listen if you’re not down for that.

Our First Podcast!

Norma and Sara celebrated the holiday weekend by recording our first ever podcast for Letters from the Mezzanine! It’s live. It’s crazy. And it’s our voices! So check it out!

The format we’ve decided to go with is a post-show discussion between friends, mucking around in the themes and excitement of the productions we’ve seen that week and making connections between the show and our lives, pop culture, other productions, and other media (tv, books, film, etc.)

In this episode, we talk about Brooklynite the Musical and The Heidi Chronicles, with an emphasis on feminism (hell, yeah):

We reference the websites for both Brooklynite and The Heidi Chronicles, as well as the NYT obituary for Wendy Wasserstein.

For more thoughts on The Heidi Chronicles, read our review!
