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 two will feature stories from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton, Kinky Boots, The Light in the Piazza, Bring It On, Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, Come From Away, and Bonnie & Clyde. Some shows are gone too soon, others seem like they’ll last forever — either way, it all started with an idea.

FINALLY! With no further ado, we bring you the backstory of THE MOST requested show for us to cover: 2011's Bonnie & Clyde. 

In this episode, we'll find out how the show developed from an ambitious recording project at Atlantic Records to a Broadway musical adored by audiences, but not by critics.

Interviewees include Jeremy Jordan, Laura Osnes, director Jeff Calhoun, composer Frank Wildhorn, lyricist Don Black, book writer Ivan Menchell, producer Van Dean, and La Jolla Playhouse artistic director Christoper Ashley.
