Fun fact: I’ve recorded nearly 300 episodes of Someone Else’s Movie over five and a half years, and people always flirt with bringing a Bob Fosse picture onto the podcast but never quite get there. Sweet Charity, Cabaret, Lenny … they’ve come up before, but the guests always change their mind.
Well, not this week. The amazing Kacey Rohl — whom you may know from her appearances on Hannibal, Arrow and The Magicians, and who is absolutely fantastic in Calvin and Yonah‘s new thriller White Lie — went for All That Jazz, and delivered as good an episode as I could have hoped. It’s also my favorite Fosse, so I’m doubly happy to have had the chance to get into that weird, seething mixture of autobiography and confession from an artist literally showing us his heart.
Want more? Well, there are two new episodes of NOW What: Last Friday’s, where Rad talks to Ryerson professor Beverly Jenkins about her innovative (and much-needed) Fashion and Race Database (it’s embedded in their interview) and today’s panel with myself, Richard, The Garrison’s Shaun Bowring and Lowest of the Low’s Lawrence Nichols about what live music might look like as we move into Stage 3 of reopening … and why no one’s in much of a rush to get there.
I make it look easy, right?
