Broadway Bound

Series produced by Garrett Stack

Series image

A 2-hour program of music from Broadway. Features a couple of dozen performances from yesterday and today, with commentary and background information about the music and the performers. Developed for WMNR, since 2005 Broadway Bound radio shows have aired on this public radio station in Monroe, CT.

Broadway musicals have the power to inspire, entertain and teach. Broadway Bound features individual tracks from new, not so new and older Broadway musicals. Tributes, interviews, focus on themes, spotlights on new recordings as they are released and theater information is just part of what makes this program entertaining and informative.
Garrett Stack is a regular at Broadway musicals and as part of the media is at many openings, providing first-hand impressions of new works and revivals.
