I love figure skating, and got to work as a writer, producer and researcher for Nationals and Worlds on ABC Sports and ESPN, the 1998 Olympics for TNT, and NBC for StarSkates.
I love musical theater and... I am never going to get a chance to work in it. Because I am, how to put this... not any good at it. So while I own the cast albums to practically every show Stephen Sondheim ever wrote, not to mention a good collection of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Lerner & Lowe, et. al.... I harbor no expectations of ever joining them.
The closet I've gotten to working in musical theater is producing the enhanced e-book for Dan Elish's "The Worldwide Dessert Contest: Enhanced Multimedia Edition." It's a middle-grade fantasy novel with its own original musical score right there in the book. Just click a button and listen to songs about Apple Ketchup, Rollerskating Apple Pies, and more!
Want a preview? Then check out this interview Dan did earlier this week (with music!) thanks to Jim Farley and his MusicalWorld Podcast, here!
