The Backstage Show

The Backstage Show

The Backstage Show is a podcast about theatre, hosted by two guys who have been involved in many community theatre productions in the Philadelphia suburbs, in several capacities, for many years. We discuss a variety of topics in a conversational manner—you don't need to be involved with theatre to listen, though you many find things more of interest if you are. Our topics or interviews are either contained within a single episode or span several weekly podcast episodes in series. This way, each weekly episode clocks in at about 30 minutes, so you're not stuck listening to us ramble on for hours at a time.... Show More
