Not a day goes by without us missing Broadway and live theater, but we've got a good thing going as we're back with our first episode of 2021 to talk about Merrily We Roll Along with Kyle Marshall, host of the Putting It Together podcast!
Check out Putting It Together, where Kyle deconstructs each Sondheim show, song by song and line by line. You can also find Christine on it (most recently talking about "Remember?" from A Little Night Music and "In Buddy's Eyes" from Follies).
Cindy's favorite rendition of "Franklin Shepard, Inc." is the one performed by Raul Esparza, despite the low-quality video.
Watch Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened on Netflix, detailing the process of putting together Merrily We Roll Along.
Christine's in favor of casting younger for Merrily, an opinion probably heavily influenced by this episode of The Original Cast podcast.
Soon (but not really), we'll be able to see what this show looks like with proper ages for each segment, as Richard Linklater is creating a film version over the next 20 years or so.
Christine mistakenly mentioned Ben Brantley as the one eulogizing Barcelona as a 3-act play, when it should've been Jesse Green.
Check out Flying Over Sunset, James Lapine's upcoming work, once Broadway comes back!
