Breaking The Curtain Podcast MasterPost


As most of you know, in addition to being your buddy on Both Sides, I also co-host a theatre podcast with my best friend Crissy of Break A Leg (www.breakalegblog.com).


I wanted to create a masterpost here, where you can find a breakdown of every episode, links to listen on multiple platforms, and episode transcriptions (which will be added as they’re finished!).


New episodes will also be added to the list as they’re released.


For more info on Breaking The Curtain, you can check out our LinkTree, where you can listen, follow along on social media and Patreon, and even purchase merch!

And 5, 6, 7, 8…


The ladies from Break A Leg and Both Sides Of The Curtain have joined forces to bring their stagey podcast to you! Breaking The Curtain, a hybrid of both blog names, features everything from Musical Theatre History, Interviews with Broadway and West End performers, and stagey ramblings!

EPISODE 24 - WISHING OUR LIVES WERE LIKE A MUSICAL WITH I WISH MY LIFE WERE LIKE A MUSICAL (ALEXANDER S. BERMANGE, LUCAS RUSH, AND CHARLOTTE ANNE STEEN)


I Wish My Life Were Like A Musical is a sparkling musical revue that lifts the lid on the highs and lows of life as a musical theatre performer. From voice-straining high notes to limb-spraining high kicks, via on-stage smooches and off-stage feuds, this laugh-out-loud caper takes in the journey from wide-eyed drama school graduate to difficult diva (or past-it chorus member).

We had the opportunity to chat with comedy album chart-topper Alexander S. Bermange, and West End regulars Lucas Rush and Charlotte Anne Steen who star in this brilliant musical.

We're also fortunate to give our listeners a sneak peek at two songs from the show!

Booking a ticket will allow you to stream the show on demand from 22 April - 12 May through King's Head Theatre!

EPISODE 29 - AN EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT FOR TONIGHT, A NEW MUSICAL


As you know, Breaking the Curtain loves new musicals! Join Cris and Joce as they sit down with Spencer Williams and Shenelle Salcido, co-writers of the new musical, For Tonight! The group is also joined by Joseph Perdue, the orchestrator working with the team on the U.K concept album being released this summer!

For Tonight is a new, original, musical inspired by the writer's third great grandfather's handwritten journal. Through a riveting score, the atmospheric soundscape blends traditional Welsh choral, indie-pop, folk, and Romani inspired melodies and rhythms. At its core, For Tonight is an exploration of the power and meaning of home.

Enjoy this exclusive listen and look into For Tonight!

EPISODE 33 - SHOW HISTORY: BAT OUT OF HELL


In honour of Jim Steinman, we've reworked our original Bat Out of Hell: the Musical Show History episode script to bring you a more detailed timeline of events leading up to the creation of this rock 'n' roll night at the theatre!

Bat Out of Hell is a post-apocalyptic rock and roll love story. Set in a dystopian future, the island of Manhattan; renamed Obsidian, has floated out to sea and is now under the reign of Falco; the tyrannical ruler set on ‘revitalizing’ the city. Living in the abandoned subway tunnels underneath the city are a group of genetically-altered teenagers, known as The Lost, who are frozen at the age of eighteen. When Strat; the reckless, rebellious leader, meets Falco’s sheltered daughter, Raven on the eve of her eighteenth birthday, the stars align and they fall head first into the wonder of first love.
