Tonight on the Livestream: Tony Award and Grammy Award winner Anaïs Mitchell (Hadestown)

Not every singer-songwriter can write a musical.  As I was quoted when Spider-Man was flying around these parts, “It’s one thing to write a 3-minute song.  It’s another to write a 3-hour musical.”

You know what singer-songwriter CAN write a musical?

Anaïs Mitchell.

Actually, I take that back. She can’t write a musical.  She can write a great effin’ musical.

A musical so great, it helped get her named to Time Magazine’s Most Influential People in the WORLD for 2020!

The musical I rave about is, of course, Hadestown, and tonight, she’s joining me on my livestream to talk about its 12-year journey to Broadway from its humble community theater beginnings.  (I mean, she’s the “Rocky” of Broadway, for goodness sake!”)

And we’ll find out how she’s keeping creative during this pandemic, and whether or not she’s got another musical up her guitar.

Join me tonight!   And before you do, head over to your favorite virtual bookstore and pick up her new book, Working on a Song, The Lyrics of Hadestown . . . already a best seller on!

You can join me and Anaïs TONIGHT, Tuesday, October 6th at 8 PM ET LIVE on my Facebook, on my Twitter, or on Broadway Podcast Network’s Youtube Channel!
