Bachelorette Parties (MM #3862)

"The mason minute. With Kevin mason. For the last few years, they've been telling us that Nashville was the number one destination for bachelorette parties in America. I spent a lot of time in Vegas, I spent a lot of time in New Orleans and horse been living here for about 15 years and I always knew more and more bachelorette parties were here. But over the weekend, it got confirmation of just how crazy it was. Friend of mine was in town to spend the weekend, so we went out grabbed dinner and then went over to her hotel and just going to hung out in the lobby area the atrium area, if you will, and just kind of chatted for a while, and every time we look at the door, another bachelorette party either on their way in or on their way out, I think in the time we were there, I saw maybe a half a dozen different bachelorette parties coming either in or out. Now maybe some duplicates, but I don't think so. But what amazed me? That was just one hotel. One of hundreds of hotels we have here in Nashville. And this one wasn't even located close to the downtown area to the lower Broadway area. The national is the hotspot. It is the its city, especially for bachelorettes, which is just something I don't understand the need to celebrate in the desire and well, I guess I've been married too long and that makes perfect sense.

The tonys was a play called slave plane. I know people who saw it and said it was a incoherent mess. It's just. I don't even know what it's about something about. It's all woke stuff about race. It's race and sexuality and you know a lot of people. I know roy just didn't like it at all but you know the woke crowd of new york being the wo- crowd it was nominated for. I think i think twelve tony awards. It was completely shut out. It didn't win a single tony so now of course come the accusations that the tony select selection committee is racist.

Amanda dear oven has what is. Dear of enhancing amanda. It is an adaptation of a tony winning musical which will come back to and it is about a young man named evan hansen. Who is having a very difficult time in high school going through some mental health issues some social anxiety issues and has been encouraged to write himself letters of you know like self belief and pas positive thinking one of these letters falls into the hands of another person and i just i'm gonna say because we need to talk about what this film okay. Another troubled student at the high school who then takes his own life and the parents of the second teen find the letter. That evan hansen has written to himself. They believe their son wrote this last letter to evan hansen before he killed himself and then assume that evan hansen. This tea and with no friends actually had a beautiful friendship with their now deceased child and the main character. Evan hansen goes along with it. And it's like yeah. He was my friend and invents a whole story and friendship and ultimately like a philosophy on how to live and connect with other people that becomes like essentially a hit. Ted talk on the internet and then he become something of a mental health advocate but really just sort of friendship at a community of care for other people a wellness figurehead popular on the internet. And and then things sort of unravel but for the most part no one is held responsible for any of the choices made in in the in the musical and the movie and then people sing songs about discovering themselves and it ends. That is the one part. I want to underline you. You just described the bones of the story very accurately and it's a musical. This story is a musical and so of course. The character is break into song as the story unfolds. I thought this was very troubling movie. A movie that really did not work for a variety of reasons. I think neither you. Nor i saw the show on broadway and so we don't really have a relationship to the show. It was a big hit and of course it. Was tony winning. But it is.

Who Killed Lois Duncan's Daughter: The Murder of Kaitlyn Arquette

"Lowest. Dunkin would receive a phone call. That would change her life forever. Caitlyn had been shot twice in the head while driving near downtown albuquerque and was in the hospital in critical condition less than twenty four hours later. Caitlin was dead and lois duncan found herself. Living the kind of nightmare. She had devoted her life to writing about. Lois would spend the next three decades trying unsuccessfully to unravel the mystery of her daughter's murder. Here's what we know about the crime around eleven pm on july sixteenth. A plainclothes detective drove by a car. That had hit a pole off the side of the road. On the corner of lomas east broadway near downtown albuquerque. There was a vw bug. Stop next to it. He saw no one at the site of the crash so he kept driving. I'm sorry what. How is it crashed car and another one right next to it at eleven o'clock at night not cause to stop an investigate. Common sense finally kicked in and the officer radioed end to see if the crash had been reported yet it hadn't so he decided to turn around and see. If i don't know a citizen might need help. By the time he got back to the scene of the crash the vw was gone. Oops am i right instead of the vw. Now some random guy was standing near the crash car when the detective asked what he was doing there. He said he just happened to be passing by turns out the reason. The officer didn't see anyone in the crashed car when he drove by without bothering to stop was because the driver had been shot twice in the head and was slumped over the wheel and she was still alive. This was kaitlyn arquette. Lois duncan's eighteen year old daughter.

"The prom on broadway Same broadway I was It was also kind of a down broadway me but the movie. It opened my an open. My eyes moderate. Yeah i mean. I definitely have a new profound respect. For what those people went through back in the day when they lived in the midwest. It's a shame that they had to go through that. I actually did not realize it was based on a true story. Hard to believe in in the twenty first century that that was a true story but You know all in all great acting a great cast you know. Who would you say sucked in that. Show which character Andrew reynolds didn't like andrew reynolds match show from hearing him and seeing how he did in a book of mormon on broadway. Yeah i kind of expected more. Addison oh he kind of had a really lame part right yeah i. I'm not even sure. What his part was he was just some extra almost like an extra that they made a bigger role in the movie. For it was andrew reynolds. You know my thought nicole. Kidman was just misplaced. Thought she kind of i mean. Part of it's annoying doesn't ever really good song. But i i kind of felt like she was totally misplaced miscast in the show and You know we could have dealt without her. Some people said that Barry James corden was but i disagree. I actually thought he did a really good job. on that role and I liked him So what do you think. What did you think of the music for the prompt Again i like music. When i first saw the show dan after hearing the new song track very for the movie icon started liking the music. That's interesting i i mean i i enjoy it. I think it's a pretty good soundtrack. I think it's a show that unfortunately didn't last long on broadway It may just been the time because it was. It was kind of scrunched in between a lot of hits. But it's kind of a shame because because it's a good show glad glad that net flicks made it and and that now looking ahead there are a few new shows that are gonna be coming out right. We have the in the heights. That's another lin. Manuel miranda show. That was on broadway a few years back and then of course. The big one coming out is dear. Enhancing what do you think of those. Chase. durham anson. I'm excited to see what they're gonna add to that in the heights. I've never heard or seen it. Yeah the only thing. I heard of the interesting thing when i heard in heights mike. Wow that really sounds a lot. Like hamilton mike. Wow lin-manuel l. Whatever his name is really has a certain style. And i never saw heights either but you could almost tell just by the music in the style. That's a limb blah blah blah production. So but as far as dear. Evan hansen. I'm actually a little apprehensive to watch. Because i just can't see how it's going to translate well to to the small stage. It's too small casts to show but you know what we'll satan seattle goes anyway. I'm excited i think that hopefully you know we'll get some indication of when broadway is gonna open again..

So i i have a special a weekly specialty program called just overtures or just title songs there was the forbidden broadway series which is sort of parodies of twelve us. Well i have a specialty. Show the best of forbidden broadway. So i want all of that. Excuse me they run. I mean i sort. I sort of fuel rations. But it ran. I mean you know in different versions. Allow for fifty. I don't know. I mean for for for eons. I mean they so you get all this year they were date it right they they would change or every couple of years because they just you know they. I think the original ramp for a couple years and then red so all. This is on the radio on my website. And so there's a lot of kind of fun information there and then also i just added a a survey because right now i have as of today. I'm at one hundred and twenty two thousand listeners. A month and from all over the world and so on my analytics i can see a map of the world. So it's it's a lot of fun to see that. But i don't know how. How do people find out about the station. So the survey says how did you find out about it you know. How often do you listen. So we're looking. I'm looking at that In the last month that the numbers have exploded averaging five thousand new listeners a day now there's a difference between i will admit total listeners and unique listeners so but both of them are just going up by fifty sixty percent a week so wonderful. Are you think that right. Now you know given the fact they're coordinates. Clueless people are craving things like this and they're also alive on casts and youtube things. I mean a lot of the broadway actor is users or doing their own thing. So maybe they're mentioning here. Maybe they're doing shouts. And i think i think i would like to think that And i think but also like you said. Broadway's close so people will it's not just broadway regional theatres the community theater so people that like musical theatre. Where do i go. Well hey go to this radio station where not only can you hear anne whatever But you can hear new things to so i. I'm hoping maybe that's you know if you if you have to look at us. Try and find specs of a silver lining with the pandemic People are are looking to musical theater. So also i'm concerned. I think that the pipeline is going to be slow for quite a while. Well i was interviewing a ceo of a regional theatre in connecticut the other day and and that's one thing he brought up instead which i thought was very interesting for national tours for example..

"Sounds like you're track. His is very long diverse. If you were to go to the broadway station on say serious exam they played maybe five hundred songs where they just put it in carousel when they played over and over again at some point you just get used to it and you almost know what's coming again and that that's what people say to me is that they want that expansive list and right now on my i have a spreadsheet of all the shows. The number of shows have about six hundred fifty musicals and so i can recall. I can figure out what shows that. I want to include each week. But i have a lot of shows that i don't play every week because they're just so many. My latest is not as restrictive. And i and i know there is a group out there that wants to hear wicked. That wants to hear all the shows they want to hear hamilton. All the time here. And i i like those shows i i actually think the score for wicked is great. But there's so much more. So i want to entertain and i want to educate ryan in my real life. I am an administrator at the university of connecticut so part of me wants to educate expose people to do things. Give some fun facts to people in addition to. I think this is a song. You're gonna like right. Yeah and then. I know you supplement your station also with podcast which that seems like. They're more of your typical track. Your trap lists where you you. You play You know twenty five thirty pounds per per per podcast so it seems like people can get the best of both worlds in many ways by following. So on the on the podcast. What i try to do is create. Seems so it's not just an hour in the sense like an hour snippet from my daily broadcast so real have would see. I've had shows most see most recently. I think i had a show. It was Animal song so it was songs from broadway off broadway. Shows that dealt with animals ride home. I had one that. I just uploaded this past friday. It's called long production numbers so these are production numbers and usually razzmatazz lot of tap dancing. That have to be at least seven and a half minutes long so have a friend. A friend like me from aladdin musical from something rotten. All these really great songs that you just don't want to end so salary as well. Yeah so i. I do How holiday themes so. I did a halloween themed. We'll do a holiday a christmas theme. So so that's what i like to do with the podcast. And what was interesting with the podcast. When i started the twenty four seven broadway station. I stopped because i had been doing a podcast for goodness twelve years. And i vaguely well. Why do you wanna listen to a podcast. You can listen..

"I'll be happy that there's very little risk that we're going to go into a war anytime soon. Unless there's some extreme event that happens that dead. That we're not aware of right now people talk about Trump. Like he's an authoritarian. He's not he's a narcissist and there's a big difference if you take a look at what's happened, for example with respect to Covent over the past eight months. It hasn't been Trump that's been talking about, you know, federalizing all the standards. He's knocked out there saying shut down. He's not out there saying wear masks. He's not the one that out there saying nationalize businesses in order to produce things for for things. I mean, that's just not who he is. He instinctively is a pro-business pro-government federalist. Guy and if there were ever a time that a president or anyone else could have used or power. It has been during pandemic you need really know to look no closer than New York or Massachusetts or Michigan or a whole slew of other states to see just how far government could go if they wanted to in terms of imposing their will on, you know, the people and Trump just didn't do that. He was incompetent agree and he again is an extreme narcissistic things really are all about him. But that's very different than a totalitarian that you need to be concerned about someone that's just going to completely destroy. The the country and that's just my take in terms of what's going on. We will try and impose, you know, talk a little bit more more about politics especially over the next page as we got closer to the election, you know, it's a topic that's at hand doesn't always per se going going hand-in-hand with something like Broadway because Off Broadway is entertainment and I am strong a strong view that you do try and keep your entertainment and your politics aside, but you know, it's also a fact that there are plenty of shows that have politics in them and Broadway community over time has indeed I you know confused itself and various political discussions. So it's appropriate for us to bring up those topics and not shy away from them on this podcast but wage That's my take for now again. We'll try and be back over the next week or so. We're talking about doing a few different things with respect to the podcast off. Maybe some interviews more panels more discussions a few other things. So stay tuned and hopefully will continue to earn your support and for that. I'm John I'm Chase and this is Broadway in politics..

"You know, the appeasement policy that Obama Biden hath And 2008 returning I would say that you're going to see a more of a global construct. Of course than than you've seen over the past, you know, four years with Donald Trump, but there really is no return to what happened prior to it. And the reason for that is because you know, the world hasn't hasn't Stood Still. I mean, you know China For Better or For Worse Trump has shown the world what China is and what its threats are, you know by backing out of something like the Iran program and seeing the middle successful stories between the countries and Israel there really is no going back there. So yes absolutely and will be a different foreign policy approach. It will probably be more of a global approach and say you have seen with Donald Trump. But once again, it's not going to be as a radical at a substantial as if you're on the left fear wage. And let me talk to my friends on the left if Donald Trump wins, you know, there are many people who fear a second term Donald Trump me think he's a tyrant. They think he's authoritative. They they think he is a threat to the country as we see and here's what I'll say. There's zero reason to fear that whoever once again, there's no reason to believe that the House and Senate are going to be any different than what I said regardless of whether or not Trump or biting winds. It's going to be a democratic house. It's going to be close to a fifty-fifty split in the Senate. So from a legislative perspective, there's going to be very very little that Trump can do without getting it passed the Democrats and if You Look At Dem if you look at Trump, I think one thing that everybody kind of agrees with is that he's all about himself. He's a narcissist. He wants to get a deal done the first person off. Sell the Republicans down the river in a situation where you have a Democratic Senate and House is going to be Donald Trump. He wants to get the deal done. He'll do whatever it takes to get that deal done and that will mean leaving his own party In The Wind foreign policy. You know, I personally actually think that wage it was one of Trump's strong points. I'm sure he'll continue it. There will be more success in the Middle East as you can see on the positive side. If you're a Democrat, there won't be a war. I remember that Democrats when they were the anti-war party. Well, guess what? I mean. There's there's zero indication to believe that Trump has any interest in war and I think that the country as a whole is is better for that way..

"I thought as a work of art. It was enjoyable. I like a good portion of the music but I do think that in terms of its story long and politically it didn't work for me and it was way past its time. It was about fifteen years in my opinion past its time compared that again to Avenue Q and which was the exact opposite it was ahead of its time and it just tried to push the wage discussion slightly farther ahead and a very very positive constructive way to a beautiful story a beautiful show that really in my opinion. I worked in every possible way. Now as we sit here today, we are talking about we are we are we are recording this about 10 days before the election off and you know, one of the things we've gotten in our feedback category is that hey supposed to be Broadway in politics and you don't really talk that much about politics. Well, you know, I think that this is probably a good time to talk a little bit about politics and the current climate and here's how I want to do it off. I want to talk about it and constructive way to both people on the roof support the Democrats and the people who support the Republican choice and here's one how I'm going to do it. Okay, first people are going to ask me what's my my view on the landscape my my my personal view. Is that if the alleging Were held today Giovanni would win the presidency. I don't think it's anywhere near the landslide that the polls have for a variety of reasons, but I would I actually think that a simplification is, you know, Donald Trump just hasn't grown his base. So he's going to get that base help but the base was severely depressed in 2016 for a variety of reasons on a Democrat side and that base is not depressed this time. It'll be out he had to draw a royal flush in order to win the last time because the Democratic base is not depressed this time and it will be out. He just won't be able to draw that flush. So that's my projection on the presidential re-election on the senatorial election..

"I don't care what state you're in in the United States is going to be shined and unable to go to the prom with her partner is ludicrous and it's something that even in, you know, the most rarest of state is a construct that is not grounded in reality and is only grounded from their perspective and you know people who don't really understand their lifestyle will just perceive it as people making fun of them. You know, it's true that if you are in the coast, you know the concept of homosexuality and gay marriage is more grounded in the culture and acceptable in life, but that doesn't mean that in wage. Galerius were areas where Charles you would say are more conservative that you know, there's still substantial bigotry and pressure against those people and that lifestyle and areas that you know, it's not as prevalent. So the first thing that I want to highlight that I thought that when completely dead South in the premise of the prom is that it's just outdated now if it's were in the 90s if this show were coming out in the nineties where if it were taking place in the nineties, you can make a much stronger argument going back to Avenue Q to me what made Avenue Q so successful in a different job. In addition to its execution was its timeliness and the way it tackled all of its issues that it's raised it only made subtle arguments, and it was timely It Off You know it did it addressed everything through humor and through comedy and music and through puppets. And it really you know, it it didn't push something in your face and it was advancing a cause that was moving as opposed to being stuck in a time that in many ways has already passed. So the whole construct of the prom the first problem is it's something that you know, again, you're you're putting on a show in the year 2018. You're not trying to date it meaning is no indication from the creators of the prom that you know, this is supposed to have taken place in an earlier time..

"Or do anything negative cuz generally speaking as a show as a construct staging with the puppets and the music it was a wonderful show off and it's outright. And with that. I want to talk to turn to a discussion about a show that came up a little more recently and that's the prom the prom was on Broadway 2018-2019. I believe and I heard that it's now actually going to be a Netflix movie with quite a few subjects now chase you and I saw the prom together. What do you think of it? I didn't really like it too much. I thought the songs are the songs were at I actually enjoyed the sauce. I felt like the music as a whole it had its few hits and I think the hits that were in the show were at the right moment home. I agree with you that the score again as a whole wasn't the greatest but it's still had those two or three hits that I still play every so often in our backup camera. Might've and I enjoyed the show. I mean, I walked out it had its funny moments..

"It's a very original, you know, it basically uses puppets to sort of get people sort of off guard to start talking about a slew of topics that are actually very very serious in nature. moving on to another topic that Avenue Q talks about is in my second favorite song which is, you know, the Internet is just only good for Porn right now the internet back then this is back again in the late 90s early 2000s was still in its infinite stage. And if you think about it, the internet is great for a lot of things it you know, it opened up the world for more speech and for more entertainers ability to reach out and and find followings created Grand new Industries in terms of entertainment and also wage earners but deep beneath it. There's also quite a lot of negative things that a lot of people would pursue as negative like porn. Bad speech being able to get together to say, you know perform groups for negative things, you know in terms of speech defamation and so forth and so on I can really can go on. And once again, it's a testament to a very astute concept which is hey you have this new item called the internet and there's a lot of good in it and there's a lot of bad in it and it's kind of up to each of us to make sure that song balanced it to and through balancing the two we sort of steer it towards more of its positive use than its negative views and we try and find a way to manage the negative uses. So the positive outweighs the negative But I got to tell you as a someone who was a watcher of Avenue Q actually rather recently. The one thing I I go back to Iraq was again how not only did it take on all of these topics, but it was very timely in doing so for example, it took on the topic of homosexuality and gay marriage back then gay marriage was not popular or constitutional homosexuality..

"Hello and welcome to Broadway and politics. I'm John. I'm Chase. And today we're actually going to talk about Broadway and politics as we sit here today. It's a Saturday the week before the election and we thought this was a great time to talk a little bit about to Broadway shows that have substantially impacted social discourse throughout the years as well as using that as a gateway to sort of talk about the current political landscape and where we Face see I'm headed sound good shape, whatever you want. So the two shows I wanted to use today is one that was came out and around the year nineteen, ninety nine two thousand called Avenue Q show that ran very very long on Broadway and then had such a successful run that it actually transferred to Off-Broadway after birth. And I was even around earlier than that. I think it was actually originated on Off Broadway and made a transition to Broadway. And after that we're going to talk about a show that was on Broadway last year called The Prom and we just heard they're actually making a Netflix movie about it. How's that sound Chase? I'm no I didn't like it very much the prom. What about having a cock you Avenue Q the music is kind of funny, but I haven't seen it. Yeah, so let's start with Avenue Q and then we can transition over to the prom and then sort of, you know, give a segue into what's going on in the world of Broadway and politics today. So what I like to tell people about a new queue is it is a show that was very in tune Not only was it in tuned to its time, but it was also a show that came out at the right moment. Yep. I mean by that is it took heads on you know sexuality racism the internet class system in the world and it had a very very good did a very good job of mixing, you know, what was going on in the world at that moment a slight projection forward in terms of its its message to the crowd and you know mixing that with a very very.

But you know I can't say I liked mingles when I can't say it was one of the worst shows I've seen. I know said, it was the worship can I just said I don't like it just doesn't like it. That's fair. I've seen. I can't say that I enjoyed it myself. I will say one of the worst shoes. I have ever seen. Is Frozen I'll let sucked as well. Frozen was one of the worst if not, the worst Disney show I have ever seen. Great, movie great story awful on stage. There's a reason why I show does so many pre-sales in tickets and then right after the pre sales are over it pretty much plummets in close. And it would have closed anyway even if Cova didn't happen. But awful staging, it really didn't translate. The acting was okay. Wasn't great but it was okay. But. Talk about a show didn't did an awful job being translated from an amazing movie. Ensembles. I mean, I did understand the other stunt, the under studies. Now, the show that I disliked. That's recent. Spongebob squarepants. I mean you know I mean actually the music was a lot better than I expected and the story was kind of better. But Oh, come on guys you know. Who came up with this ridiculous idea apparent haste.

In one of your worst shows the music sucks exploring. The music does not suck the music's. Cats. The music is great. It's spectacular and it was ox it was Andrew Lloyd Webber's biggest hit before Phantom. Well a lot of people don't like it. Yeah, but you kinda have to explain chase why you don't like it.

I mean you're just stared at be entertained by a bunch of humans wearing cat costumes stuff. That's not good. I don't get the point of this like the point is cats have nine lives. Did you ever hear that before? So stupid Dude Deuteronomy is going to determine which cat is going to be reborn, and all of the cats need to put on performances to tell their story and to explain to everyone why they should be chosen. It sucks. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It sucks where show ever Greenfield. If you like it I'm Sorr- Greg costumes sucks awesome music. I Hate Angelo driver.

That's cool. Still he made school of rock. Is Not that good. He's not that good well I think we're going to have to explore. Chases issues with Andrew, Lloyd, Webber in a separate podcast. Chase said cats. Dad has been around the block a lot longer than chase. I've seen some pretty damn bad news. But the one I'm going to bring up today. Is. Be. More chill I was GONNA say that. Chase was going to say that. Be More show was just on Broadway over the past year and a half and I couldn't even tell you about you. Tell me do you remember what it was about A teenager. A teenager and something about aliens right. Yeah, I think at some kind of computer. I don't know robot. I do I don't know. It was so bad. I mean actually fell asleep during the show. was well, it was real will rolling though will roll into Started the role on your Evan Hansen as the Geek Dude who was his cousin He's also been in the show billions as a computer geek as well. Although that one on one. But. I don't know dude be more chilled. The music kind of wasn't too good socked. The story was kind of really really weird. Some people call it like a modern day. Little shop is but. Ours. Is Way better than that someone who loves little shop of horrors. I agree with that. and then I don't really remember much about it other than I had a really good sleep during it, and that was the only thing that saved me from having to tolerate this God awful show.

By the way that he ever make it. Now. I don't think he did they kind of dropped that story line you notice that Ending, sucked they didn't really say whether or not the engineer made it or not I. Mean Chris Kinda Kim Kinda killed herself at the end. And we have no clue what happened to the engineer or not or little chances are probably didn't make it to America. But now they got the kid at the end and the Christian his new wife. Allan Allan. Probably. took him to America right. The. Kid Kim, Kim sacrificed herself and killed herself.

"Hello and welcome to Broadway in politics. I am John and I'm chase then today on Broadway in politics we're GonNa talk about great Broadway Songs Chase. Why don't you start off with naming one of your favorite Broadway songs One of my favorite is. Suddenly Suddenly, Seymour. It's interesting because you may be able to read my mind because suddenly Seymour is definitely one of my favorite songs. It's an absolute classic. What do you like about the song? Or One. Little. Little Fars. One of the greatest shows if not the greatest show ever. At least. That's what we think. 'cause like Wilson to it every day. Basically, we listen to it a lot and we were I was in the show. I played Seymour when I was a kid. and. It was just it's so awesome show. It's creative and it's funny and it's got amazing music angry staging. So almost perfect show and it's a short show. It's two hours which is great too. So doesn't overstay its welcome. Based on a horror movie actually from the nineteen sixties and they took it and they made it a black comedy anyway I agree suddenly Seymour definitely up there as one of the greatest songs, it's definitely probably the greatest duet in my opinion of all Broadway songs. You know it's a love duet between Seymour and Audrey. Bid They basically both realized that they love each other and want to be with each other. Shame she gets eaten right away after that.
