Bill Sherman is a Tony, Grammy, and Emmy award-winning composer, producer, arranger, orchestrator, and one hell of a podcast guest let me tell you. Bill braved an awful winter rain storm to hang out and talk to me about Hamilton, The Hamilton Mixtape, In the Heights, Freestyle Love Supreme, Sesame Street, and how this podcast might be the best kind of therapy ever. From the two month process of producing the Hamilton album, to why being the Music Director of Sesame Street is the best and weirdest job in the world, to the incomparable talent and work ethic of the members of Freestyle Love Supreme, Bill and I cover a ton of ground. And it was AWESOME.

Hello Ham Fam! I'm dropping this surprise mini episode into your podcast feed to tell you about my collaboration with Coloring Broadway for the March For Our Lives demonstrations taking place on March 24th. We’re teaming up to bring you two designs that you can download, print, and color - and they’ll come in different sizes so you can post them on social media, hang them up at work or school, or bring them to your local march, which is what I’ll be doing.

Stephanie Klemons, Hamilton's Associate Choreographer (and so much more) is finally here! Over two pints of Sam Adams, Stephanie goes in on what it was like to be part of Hamilton coming together from the very beginning and goes in on so many Hamilton staging secrets and Easter eggs that you are going to LOVE. She also tells me how and why the choreography changes from stage to stage (and why you'll never notice it), what it's like to be Andy Blankenbuehler's "variation maker," being a strong woman on a male dominated creative team, and her thoughts on Hamilton's incredibly impactful Tony performance. Not to mention the Super Bowl commercial, In the Heights, Katie's Art Project, and her stunning curly hair.
