ABOUT “THE FABULOUS INVALID”

The Fabulous Invalid is a brand-new Broadway-centric podcast hosted by theater stalwart Jamie Du Mont, Lucille Lortel Award winner Leslie Kritzer, writer and theater critic Rob Russo, and Tony Award nominee Jennifer Simard. On a weekly basis, the group digs deep into the minds of the most creative, brilliant, out-there, and passionate theater professionals on the planet. Their guests won’t tell us how they do what they do; they’ll tell us why they do it. Pull up a chair and join them as they gossip a bit, banter about all the latest news, and get up-close with the most prominent players currently working in the theater – from actors to producers, and stage managers to critics. Together, they’ll share their love for The Great White Way, or as it has long been known, “the fabulous invalid”.
