The Green Room 42 – the intimate concert venue dubbed Broadway’s “off-night hotspot” by The New York Times – will present a live taping of the Sentimental Men podcast hosted by Quincy Brown and Kevin Bianchi, on Monday, December 11 at 7:00 PM.
The evening will feature performances by Broadway Elphabas Emily Koch, Talia Suskauer, Carrie St. Louis, and Lindsay Heather Pearce, with additional names to be added. Did someone say “holiday greetings and gay happy meetings”? To celebrate the end of an Oztastic year for the podcast, the hosts are talking (and maybe screaming) with some of their favorite women in musical theater. The boys will be getting Sentimental with a coven of former witches for an evening of role swapping, Elpha-belt-offs and all-around gay chaos. The event is produced by Theatrely. James Kennedy serves as music director.
Sentimental Men is an interview-based ode to the women of musical theater, with a special emphasis on Wicked’s green girl. Each episode, hosts Quincy Brown and Kevin Bianchi are joined by one of their favorite leading ladies to talk about the stand-out moments in their careers. Over three years on the air, guests have included Eden Espinosa, Julia Murney, and Stephanie J. Block. Wicked fanatics and theater buffs alike can listen and subscribe to Sentimental Men on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or anywhere podcasts are streamed. The podcast is produced by Theatrely.
James Kennedy writes plays and musicals and things in-between. His work has been seen at cool places like the Humana Festival, the Kennedy Center, and National Sawdust, as well as schools and community theaters from Ohio to Japan. He was born on the exact same day as Kevin Bianchi, was honored to be an early guest on the podcast, and had seen Wicked more times than any other musical. He’s been playing piano for 26 years and still can’t play “No Good Deed,” but that won’t stop him from trying.
Sentimental Men will be presented Monday, December 11 at 7:00 PM at The Green Room 42 (570 Tenth Avenue at 42nd Street, on the 4th Floor of Yotel). The cover charge ranges from $20-$50. A livestream option is available for $20. For tickets, please visit www.TheGreenRoom42.com.
