The debut episode of brand-new podcast The Show Show was launched on New Year's Day; the first in a series of episodes exploring the A-Z and the 1,2,3 of musicals.
We thought we knew a lot of musicals. We were wrong.
Hosted by Tom Ling (The Cereal Café) and Geddy Stringer (Christmas Carol, 9 to 5), The Show Show will work its way through the Wikipedia list of musicals from start to finish, discussing everything from the smash hits to the hidden gems.
Stringer said: "We thought we knew a lot of musicals. We were wrong. When we found the list, we couldn't believe how long it was! So, we decided it would be a great idea to share it with people and give them a sneak-peek into as many musicals as we possibly could."
The podcast covers a different show each episode and aims to introduce its listeners to new musicals, and educate them further on those they thought they already knew. Every week, the hosts discuss their favourite numbers and moments, fun facts, before finishing with an original song written in the style of the show. There is also an opportunity for listeners to send in their most embarrassing stage moments.
