Encore LIVE! – Season 6, Episode 1
Season 6, Episode 1: Season round-up, The 2014 Wilde Awards and more!
The sixth season of our popular podcast series opens with a wide-ranging discussion about the recently concluded 2013-14 professional theater season. And what a season it was! Jokingly subtitled “What the F**k is Happening in Michigan Theater,” co-hosts Barton Bund and Donald V. Calamia discuss the good, the bad, the ugly and pretty much everything in-between – and not necessarily in that order. From inclement weather to The 2014 Wilde Awards and from Team Tony to the news that shocked the industry, this wide-ranging and frank examination into the major stories of the season not only recalls the best and the worst of the year, it also sets up future podcasts that will dig deeper into some of the topics presented here. Plus, Bart and Don peer into the future – including what’s to come of EncoreMichigan.com and The Wilde Awards – and introduce a new theme song! All in all, this season-opener is a podcast not to be missed!
