#62: Live TV Musicals
Over here at Ensemblist HQ, we've really embraced the fact that NBC (and now Fox!) has brought back the Live TV Musical. Not only is it a massive cultural event being broadcast to millions of people, it's really an opportunity to, as a community, celebrate the crazy amounts of work it takes to make a show happen. Plus, it provides more places for Broadway ensemblists to shine in ever-growing capacities, and you know we love that!
So this week, we sat down with Georgia Stitt (Sound of Music Live), F. Michael Haynie (Peter Pan Live), and Capathia Jenkins (The Wiz Live) to get the inside scoop on how working on a live TV musical is the same as a Broadway show, and how it is very very different. Enjoy!
