Listen Up: Musical Theatre Talk with Trish Causey

For the past couple of weeks, I have been obsessed with listening to the Musical Theatre Talk interviews with Trish Causey. Coming from a musical theatre writing/performing background herself, Trish makes a great host, interviewing everyone from vocal training professionals to performers to writers involved with musical theatre. A few weeks ago was Larson week, which featured awesome composers mentioned on this blog: Kerrigan and Lowdermilk, Joe Iconis, Ryan Scott Oliver, Mark Allen, and Lance Horne. It's fascinating to hear different takes on songwriting, approaches to the industry, and general philosophies about having a career in musical theatre.

From what computer music programs people are using to filling out grant/award applications, all these podcasts are fantastic resources for anyone hoping to get into musical theatre, and if you listen to the broadcasts in realtime, you can even call in/chat questions to the guest. Listen to replays of the podcasts here, and be on the lookout for future shows!
