Dance Like Nobody’s Watching

This week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie is a personal triumph for me, as I land my first cast member of The Thrilling Adventure Hour — that wonderfully goofy live show and podcast that ran for a decade in Los Angeles. And in a weird twist, it’s Mark Gagliardi, who was the only cast member absent from the one show I managed to attend.

(He played Croach the Tracker, faithful Martian companion of Marc Evan Jackson’s Sparks Nevada; he felt really bad about that when I told him, explaining that he missed only three shows in ten years. We’re cool.)

Aaaanyway. Mark picked Center Stage, Nicholas Hytner’s 2000 drama about the new class at a New York ballet academy; it’s basically Fame for a new generation; theater kids love it, Mark is a theater kid, we had plenty to talk about.

You can get it from all the usual places:  It’s on iTunesGoogle Play and Stitcher, or you can download it straight from the source.  Go do that! And maybe also check out We Got This, the really entertaining podcast Mark does with his fellow Adventurekateer Hal Lublin. Their very special Halloween episode should be dropping tomorrow, and you won’t want to miss it.
