Big thanks to everyone who came out to see my live interview with Benjamin Scheuer, and artistic director, Tracy Brigden after the sneak peek performance of The Lion at City Theatre! It was a wonderful evening. I truly was not prepared to watch the show and hear Ben's story pour out of him and into each person in the audience. My heart hurt so badly after the last song ended, and I was so worked up to go on stage and conduct the interview! If you have not seen this show, you must. The music is incredible, and the story makes you want to go out and live each moment of your life to the fullest. To grab the people you love and make sure they know it, and to appreciate everything you have.
You can preorder Songs From The Lion on his site before it drops June 3rd, and by doing so you get two songs instantly! Also check out the photo book of his journey with cancer called Between Two Spaces. 50% of the proceeds go to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. Check out his music video for one of my favorite songs Weather The Storm
Ben was truly a joy to chat with, and I had THE best time doing so, as I am sure you will gather from the recording. I could have sat there all day and talked to him. So much so, that I am positive you will hear him on the show again one day. ;)
A huge Thank you to City Theatre's crew for inviting me out to be a part of this magical evening.

A love of mysteries starts when you are kid. Depending on what you watched or read growing up, you could be terribly upset when you become an adult and realize life isn't a Nancy Drew book. At least, these are my thoughts. If you are like me you are constantly looking for that hidden mystery, that game, that hunt, or that treasure. My good friend Sean Collier suggested a perfect guest for my show knowing what she did was right up my alley!

My siblings and I have done various shows at Stage 62, and I thought what a great way to round out the Halloween season with a feature on them doing one of my most favorite cult classics of ALL TIME. It is the 40th anniversary of Rocky Horror, and it is just as good today as it was then. I still love doing the time warp, and singing out loud at random times to the iconic songs. OH ROCKY!!!! Join me as I chat with director Stephen Santa, and two of the lead actors from the show, Nick Black/Brad, and Nathan Hough/Narrator. They have a bunch of fun things in store for this show, and a different take on the setting, which is sure to be awesome! Local performers will be presenting before the show, and they have midnight showings!!! Show dates and information is on the flyer below or check out STAGE 62 for more details!
ALSO! Listeners can use code Eddie and receive $2 off of the show tickets! We are also running a contest for this episode for 2 free tickets!
