Hosted by Deborah Sharn, New Line Theatre board member, actor, and singer, Break a Leg: Theatre in St. Louis and Beyond is a weekly theatre talk show on KDHX FM 88.1 in St. Louis, every Monday night at 10:10 p.m. The talk is always lively, intelligent, and in-depth -- the kind you can only get from working theatre artists.
Deborah debuted Break a Leg back in the mid-1990s. Scott Miller joined the team (after several appearances as a guest) in 1997, and co-hosted the show until 2015. Past guests have included Broadway composers Stephen Schwartz, Adam Guettel, Laurence O'Keefe, Henry Krieger, Rupert Holmes, and Jeanine Tesori; Broadway lyricists Amanda Green and Bill Russell; Broadway legend Barbara Cook; Broadway and film stars Eartha Kitt, Ted Neeley, Ken Page, Andrea Marcovicci, Dee Hoty, Patrick Cassidy, and B.D. Wong; Broadway actors Doug Storm, Deven May, Marin Mazzie, and Norbert Leo Butz; Broadway and cabaret stars Liz Callaway, Judy Kaye, Debbie Gravitte, and Craig Rubano; New York cabaret legend Steve Ross; Broadway producer Rocco Landesman; Broadway playwright Eve Ensler; the legendary stage director Anne Bogart; former New York Times senior theatre critic Frank Rich, stage, screen, and TV star John Astin; comedian and Broadway star Jackie Mason; plus other visiting actors and directors, cast members from current Broadway and off Broadway hits, and local writers, actors, directors, designers, critics, and more.
It's the only show in town where working theatre artists interview working theatre artists. Don't miss Break a Leg, every Monday night at 10:10 p.m., part of the KDHX Arts Block, following Nancy Kranzberg's Arts Interviews.
And if you miss the show on Monday night, you can always catch it later during the week in podcast on the KDHX-FM website, at http://kdhx.org/ondemand/podcasts/breakaleg
