Ilana Levine (Little Known Facts) is hosting a brand new podcast series focused on celebrating the most extraordinary Award recipients. The first season focuses on intimate conversations with beloved Tony winners as they share the behind the scenes journey of what led to their win and what happened after their lifelong dream came true. Listen as these glorious artists take us on a trip down memory lane and share never before heard and … sometimes shocking details about their winning night.
According to Levine, when the Tony Awards were cancelled this year she thought “it would be a wonderful way to celebrate the artists who have created work that has been so meaningful for so many especially during this unprecedented time. It was so humbling for me to get to have these in-depth and eye opening conversations with people who I treasure and who we all are looking forward to seeing back on stage as soon as it is safe.”
Season 1 guests also include James Iglehart (Aladdin), Karen Olivo (West Side Story), 2019 Isabelle Stevenson Award winner Judith Light (The Assembled Parties, Other Desert Cities), Nikki M. James (The Book of Mormon), Norbert Leo Butz (Catch Me If You Can, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), Cynthia Nixon (The Little Foxes, Rabbit Hole), BD Wong (M. Butterfly), John Benjamin Hickey (The Normal Heart), and Laura Benanti (Gypsy).
