The Producer’s Perspective LIVE! Episode 3: Sierra Boggess

And we’re off!

Last night, we had our first guest, Stephen “Wicked” Schwartz, join me in my e-office and, well, it worked!  It was a joy just to see him . . . and then he spilled some great stories like . . .

  • How he rewrote the final few lyrics “The Colors of the Wind,” moments before it was recorded (watch the replay here to hear what the first draft lyrics were and why Stephen hated them)
  • How he gets through writer’s block
  • What’s he’s working on with Alan Menken as he is hunkered down

And he answered a lot of YOUR questions as well!  You can watch the replay here.

And then . . . tune in TONIGHT at 8pm EDT (7 pm CDT/6 pm MDT/5 pm PDT) for my lifestream with one of my favorite ladies of the theater, the joyous Sierra Boggess!

She was the original Little Mermaid, one of the most celebrated Christine’s in Phantom, and, well, talking to her is like getting a steroid shot of pure sunshine, so you can’t miss it.

And you can see her and me LIVE tonight on my Facebook page.

Bring questions, and bring friends!  The more folks in this e-party, the better.

You can also watch it through the Broadway Podcast Network which is streaming the content through their Youtube channel.

See you tonight at 8 pm EDT (7 pm CDT/6 pm MDT/5 pm PDT).
