Vol. 813 – The Music Issue – Feb. 21, 2018

Are you into all things musical theatre and cabaret? We’ve got a music issue for you, chock full of everything from Classics to Americana  Romano DiNillo and Chris Ranney play in the “pit” for the Broadway Smash, “Come From Away”, only in this show, the pit is right where all the action is. They talk about the musicians role in this unique show. Deborah Grace Winer has dedicated her career to “curating the American Songbook”. After working for years as the head of Lyrics and Lyricists, she has struck out on her own to continue bringing recognition and rememberence to Musical Theatre’s finest writers. Bill Solly may be the most prolific “undervalued gem” of a writer in Manhattan. A listener suggested I talk to this man, who pioneered writing gay-themed theatre before it was mainstream and popular. We talk about his ground-breaking shows like “The Great American Backstage Musical” and “Boy Meets Boy” and hopes of a major revival. Finally, Isaac Sutton is a tireless cabaret artist playing the likes of Las Vegas, New York and Israel. He talks about bringing his art craft all over the world, and the logistics of making it all happen. That’s what we have set for Vol. 813, February 21st, 2018. All that, inside!
