Broadway Backstory

Broadway Backstory is a documentary style podcast from TodayTix and Theater People that explores how a show develops from an idea to a full Broadway production. We get the behind the scenes story directly from the people who lived it - the conceivers, actors, directors, and producers. Season one will feature stories from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights, Fun Home, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, The Secret Garden, Legally Blonde, Next to Normal, and the Deaf West production of Spring Awakening. Some shows are gone too soon, others seem like they’ll last forever — either way, it all started with an idea.

This episode finds out how the stunning re-imagining of the groundbreaking musical Spring Awakening began as a ten day workshop, was developed at a 99-seat theater near LA’s Skid Row, quickly transferred to famed regional theater in Beverly Hills, and ultimately landed on Broadway, all in a little over a year. Through conversations with the show’s original creators, director, producers and stars, we’ll find out how this “little show that could” made the unlikely journey from West Coast workshop to beloved Broadway revival.
