After appearing together on the Broadway stage in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Tony Award winners Patti LuPone and Brian Stokes Mitchell are (sort of) reuniting on screen as guest stars on Vampirina.
The Disney Junior animated series focuses on Vampirina Hauntley and her parents Boris and Oxana, who moved from Transylvania to Pennsylvania. The two theatre greats return to the show as guest stars in the November 23 episode, reprising their voice performances as Nanpire and Grandpop the Greats.
In the video above, LuPone and Mitchell discuss working on the series and with each other. "It's great to be working with him again, I just adore him," says LuPone.
Mitchell echoes the sentiment, adding how important he feels the show is for young audiences: "Everybody has felt like an outsider at some point or another....other people might seem different at first, and then you realize as you get to know them, they're not so different after all."
LuPone and Mitchell have both been special guest performers on Playbill's Broadway on the High Seas cruises.
