Can musical theatre help us find common ground with those with whom we disagree? If so, Unexpected Joy is undoubtedly the musical to do it. Watch Terri Paddock’s post-show Q&A with the all-female cast, producer Katy Lipson of Aria Entertainment and musical director Gareth Bretherton.
Bill Russell and Janet Hood’s musical Unexpected Joy is refreshing and appropriate for 2018 thanks to its four strong female characters and songs that hit the spot emotionally.
Award-winning producer Katy Lipson of Aria Entertainment is joining forces new partnership with New York City-based Tony and Olivier Award-winning theatre and film producer Jim Kierstead of Kierstead Productions to develop and present new and groundbreaking productions on both sides of the Atlantic in Off-Broadway/Off-West End-sized venues.
Be sure to also listen out for: which writing team has the best ‘how we met’ story; why the Germans don’t get Stephen Sondheim; Katy’s big new producing ambitions; and the challenges of translating musicals.
