Ever wonder what a performer is thinking as they sing an opening number for the millionth time? Or what it might be like to sing a love song to a co-star they hate? Songwriter Alexander S. Bermange has taken those concepts to an extreme in his musical revue I Wish My Life Were Like a Musical, now streaming through May 12, 2021 on KingsHeadTheatre.com. Today Bermange joins the BGP fam to share how a background in musical theatre and comedy led him to create a love letter to musicals that "takes the mickey out" of it in an endearing way. And as a special bonus to this episode, you can hear one of the songs from the show at the end of this episode, so stick around after the interview! Also, make sure to check out our show notes for more videos from the performance on TheBroadwayGinger.com.
