OBSESSED!: You Can't Expect Shoshana Bean to Defy Gravity EVERY Time, Can You? OBSESSED!: You Can't Expect Shoshana Bean to Defy Gravity EVERY Time, Can You?
Shoshanna Bean (she doesn't "go by" ShoBean, but people seem to call her that for some reason) joined Seth Rudetsky in the studio for the latest and greatest episode of OBSESSED! Bean and Seth go back a ways — he saw her in the 2000 Off-Broadway production of Godspell and knows all the tech-based details of her "Defying Gravity" epic fail. The pair performs a mashup of several of Seth's ShoBean obsessions including "Coronet Man," "sassafras" mixed with Foghorn Leghorn (yes, this sound too nutty even for Seth, we know) and signature whistle tone to top it all off. Check out Seth's weekly column. Visit SethTV.com, Seth's online home.
August's August's "On Stage Across America" Visits the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center
For 50 years, the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford, CT has given theatre artists the resources to hone their skills.Avenue Q, The House of Blue Leaves, Nine and August Wilson's Fences (Wilson developed 6 of his 10 plays there) are just a small sampling of the titles that have come from the program. "On Stage Across America" took a trip to the bucolic campus to take a peek at works in progress including musical thriller The White City and the new additions that will house a musical theatre program. Alum and current teaching artist Susan Blackwell was on hand to give some background on how her time at the O'Neill shaped her career. For more information on "On Stage Across America" (co-presented by Playbill) check local listings.

Alison Fraser's latest CD release "Tennessee Williams: Words and Music" is now available on Ghostlight Records. The album merges songs featured in the works of the iconic playwright with select readings of his flavorful prose and serves as a document of Fraser's one woman show of the same title. In this exclusive video, Playbill popped in for a visit to Fraser's home where she and musical director Allison Leyton-Brown just so happened to be running though some tunes from the album including "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles," "If I Didn't Care" and "St. Louis Blues."

Here, McQueen pairs two-time Grammy nominee Jane Monheit with songwriter Angelo Di Loreto to take on "One Would Be Enough," his thoughtful take on romance in the always-too-busy digital age. See Episode Two featuring 2014 Tony nominee Anika Larsen.

Broadway veteran Anne Runolfsson (Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera) joined Seth Rudetsky in the studio for the latest installment of the biweekly OBSESSED! series. After giving a sample of some Phantom, Runolfsson relived the whirlwind ride that she experienced filling in for Julie Andrews right in the middle of a performance of Victor/Victoria. Then, she gave a taste of her extra high notes in the the show's "Le Jazz Hot." Check out Seth's weekly column. Visit SethTV.com, Seth's online home.

Buyer and Cellar's Barrett Foa recently adopted a dog himself, so he felt extra energized by the goings-on at Broadway Barks. The 16th edition of the adopt-a-thon once again filled Shubert Alley with adorable dogs and cats in need of forever homes. Foa mingled with human and critters alike at the Broadway Cares/Equity Fight AIDS produced event which was hosted by co-founder Bernadette Peters.

Radcliffe talked about a love of Broadway that was instilled by his mum and dad (he's British, don’t you know!) and fans who want to get a wee bit too personal during performances. When Seth challenged him to show off his skill for accents, Audra McDonald (she's a record-breaking Tony winner don't you know!) popped in for a very special surprise straight out of Catfish Row.
