Episode 14 of the Take Me To The World Musical Theatre Podcast is a very random episode where I talk about a few musical related topics that don’t require their own in-depth episode. Topics include if/when I will spoil a musical for myself, whether or not I only listen to musical cast recordings, and a random thing that sometimes happens in cast recordings that makes me deliriously happy.
I mentioned a few past episodes of this podcast in this recent episode. Episode 5 is where I talk about seeing Hamilton. Episode 9 is where I review Waitress (along with musicals Six, and Come From Away). I also briefly mentioned the musical Cabaret in the episode as well. If you want to learn more about Cabaret check out the 3 part series I did about that musical in starting with Episode 11.

Resources – Music
While I didn’t talk about any musical in depth in this episode I decided to link to the cast recordings of the musicals I mentioned. Most of the links are on Spotify unless otherwise stated. I also include a couple of musical playlists.
It’s Broadway, Bitch – Spotify Playlist. This has over 2000 songs from different musicals I’ve either seen or have listened to obsessively. Most of the playlist is from stage musicals, but I have a few movie musicals and musical TV shows on here as well. Albums are in random order. Some songs contain strong language and subject matter, so listener discretion is advised.
Sounds of Broadway. This is an online radio station with over 4600 songs from 560 different musicals. It’s a fun way to listen to musicals you know and discover some musicals you may have never heard of before. The station also has a great weekly podcast about musicals.
Moulin Rouge! The Musical (2019 Original Broadway Cast). I haven’t listened to this cast recording yet.
Tootsie (2019 Original Broadway Cast). I haven’t listened to this cast recording yet.
Rent (1996 Original Broadway Cast – Highlights). The full cast recording of Rent isn’t available on Spotify.
The Prom: A New Musical (2018 Original Broadway Cast). I haven’t listened to this cast recording yet.
Resources – Videos
These are links on Just Watch (unless otherwise noted) for some movie adaptations of the musicals I mentioned in this episode. I’ve also included some non-musical movie versions if available.
Moulin Rouge (2001 Movie). This movie is what the recent 2019 Broadway production of Moulin Rouge is based on, but the stage musical of this might be a bit different than the movie. I haven’t seen the stage musical of this movie.
Resources – Websites and Apps
Obviously most theatres are closed at the moment (aside from a few places like Australia…way to go Oz). Instead of linking websites where you can’t buy any tickets for shows (because of the current hellscape) I’ve included some general links to some musical related sites. If shows start to open up I’ll update this and include them here.
Drinks and A Show. This is the podcast I mentioned in this episode where the host tells a friend the plot of a musical, and that person decides if they would be interested in seeing that musical based on what host says.
Reddit Musicals and Reddit Musical Theatre. Both of these subreddits are great places to go if you want to talk about musicals, get tips (if you’re a performer), and to get recommendations on shows to check out.
Broadway Musical Home. This is an amazing website for any musical theatre lover. They have an alphabetical list of over 300 musicals, and you can look up musicals by different categories like “based on a book” and “based on real life.” For anyone or any theatre company looking to put on a musical, you can check out the Rights page, where you can find where to get the rights to put on a variety of musicals.
Playbill has a listing for shows (musicals and plays) in New York, London and National Tours.
Today Tix has an App for both iOS and Android. You can use the app to buy cheap, same-day tickets for shows in cities like New York, London, Toronto, Chicago, and several others. I used this app with great success in London and highly recommend it.

Are there any other random musical topics you’d like me to discuss in a future episode?
