I knew as soon as I heard the cute theme song by The Skivvies that I was going to like this show.

"The Ensemblist" is a podcast about the often-overlooked part of a Broadway show - the chorus members, the gypsies, the ensemble.  This podcast will show what their lives are like onstage and off.

In this first episode, hosts Mo Brady and Nikka Graff Lanzarone introduce the mission of "The Ensemblist" and talk about some upcoming episodes.  They both are engaging and sound like they will make amazing hosts.

Episode 2 is already up, and explores partnering: what it takes to create that movement, what it takes to dance those steps, and all the little stuff in between.  Their guests include: Stephanie Gibson, Peter Nelson, Mark Stuart, Cameron Adams, and Marty Lawson.

"The Ensemblist" is available through iTunes.
