BroadwayCon attendees and theatre fans can keep the excitement going all year long thanks to a new podcast series hosted by Patrick Hinds, creator and host of Theater People Podcast.

The November 10 podcast, titled Broadway Understudies, will feature Ellyn Marie Marsh (Kinky Boots), Ben Cherry (Fiddler on the Roof), and Mo Brady (The Adams Family), who will discuss what it’s like to be a Broadway understudy.

The November 16 podcast will feature Disaster! Tony Award nominee Jennifer Simard and Andrew Briedis (aka Twitter's @AnnoyingActorFriend). The podcast will explore Simard’s success in Disaster! (and her show-stopping performance), as well as the power of social media.
