Playbill Radio: Theater Music, Interviews, Podcasts, and More

With Internet radio streams and podcasts covering every conceivable type of music, you have to wonder why it took so long for someone to create one devoted to theater, especially musical theater. Well, now Playbill Radio is here to fill the void.

Playbill Radio has a radio stream that plays continuous music. There is a regular schedule of features, including a "composer spotlight," backstage glimpses into different shows, and talks with some of today's leading names in theater.

Playbill Radio also had brief segments covering news in theater and the theater business, as well as podcasts that cover feature stories in more depth: right now there's a look at the 50th anniversary of West Side Story, and an interview with Andrea McArdle, the original "Annie" on Broadway.

If you love theater and can't get enough news and music from the stage, you'll want to check out Playbill Radio.
