This time around, Lauren and Michelle deal with drama! They talk with the Toy Box Theatre Company, learn about politics in musical theater, and go behind-the-scenes on the set of Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson. ALSO: You have a chance to win* free tickets to Woyzeck or a copy of Danton’s Death, Leonce and Lena, and Woyzeck by Georg Büchner!
*To enter to win free tickets or a copy of Georg Büchner’s theatrical works, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Toy Box” by 5pm ET on October 26.
