New year, same us! Paul and Jill gather with aching heads and full hearts to discuss ol’ buddy ol’ pal of the podcast Charles Strouse.

Calm down, kid, it’s the Depression, we…

We’re heading back to the swinging sixties with this week’s episode: Anyone Can Whistle! (Well, except maybe Fay Apple).

With the OBC starring Angela Lansbury and diva after diva taking …
 
We have a special guest on this week’s episode: the melodious voice, the producer with the mostest, it’s Producer Daph! Who writes the copy for all our episodes!

This episode of Monkeys and Playbills has everything. Our favourite sci-fi princess. A literal Greek chorus. An absurd amount of tailors. Burgess Meredith. Meta-musicals.

It’s a triple-bill this week on Monkeys and Playbills! We’re taking on three underperforming musicals from days gone by: Galt MacDermot’s Dude; Charles Strouse’s Bring Back Birdie; and Bud Freeman’s Beg, Borrow or Steal!

Did everyone enjoy their intermission? Get some wrapped candies? Hob-nob by the bar? Make after-show plans? Delightful.
