In this week’s episode of Broadway Dish, Lisa chats with native Newfoundlander, Bonnie Harris (the real life person the character, Bonnie Harris, in Come From Away is based on) and Audra Meinelt, the curator of the Congo Expedition Region at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Bonnie and Audra help explain how Columbus (and the Zoo) has a very special connection to Come From Away. Enjoy!
Broadway Dish has returned. In our first episode back after the long intermission, we're celebrating that, beginning Tuesday, Broadway shows are here again! Share this video if you're just as excited for Broadway to be back in Columbus as we are! Enjoy!
Lisa was joined by Jungle Jack Hanna (who's celebrating his 40th anniversary with the Zoo), his wife, Suzi, and daughter, Julie. They had a great afternoon exploring the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium (a great partner to Broadway In Columbus), riding the beautiful carousel, and singing a few tunes.
Jason Gay, the Ohio Theatre’s stage manager, and Lisa, our Broadway fan girl extraordinaire, take you on a 360 degree tour of the Ohio Theatre. Enjoy!
Our Broadway fan girl extraordinaire turned to a pro from both the theatre and football worlds (aka EDDIE GEORGE!) to help the big game make a little more sense.
Lisa got a chance to chat with the cast and creative team (including Diane Paulus, Jessie Nelson and Sara Bareilles) of Waitress the Musical. Check out what they had to say about the show.
The show's stars, Deborah Cox and Judson Mills, have amazing chemistry on stage. Which made us curious to see how well they knew each other off stage. So, we decided to put them to the test with our co-star quiz.
