Hello Fellow Theater People!

Welcome to our website! We're so glad you've found us!

If you're familiar with our site and just here to find our latest episode or, you know, to re-listen to our interview with Lin-Manuel (and who could blame you?), welcome back, friend! You look STUNNING today! If you're new to the site, well then, Hey There, Gorgeous! We're so happy to have you! Let's get to know each other a little, shall we?

Theater People is the only podcast featuring full length interviews with Tony winners, Broadway legends, and Today's hottest theater stars. We've had the great fortune to interview everyone from Laura Benanti (twice!!!) to LaChanze to Laura Osnes to Lin-Manuel--And a whole bunch of other people without Ls in their names! Our hope is that you'll give us 45 to 50 minutes of your time and in exchange we'll give you a fun and informative interview packed full of music and laughs (and the occasional heartfelt and inspiring tear--I'm looking at you Keala Settle!).

Thanks for checking us out! We hope you'll visit us often!

Much Love and Big Hugs,

PS We LOVE feedback! Want to share your reacting to a particular episode? Are there certain guests you'd like us to book? Just want to say hi? Reach out to us via our contact page, we'll be so happy to hear from you!

In attempt to do the same, the Theater People podcast was born. The person you always want at a party, Patrick's energy and joy is infectious. Patrick is the author of two books, The Whole World Was Watching and The Q Guide to NYC Pride, and he lives in Upper, Upper Manhattan with his husband and two cats.
