Synopsis of Broadway Sandwich:
Follow host Garen Scribner as he reveals what some of Broadway’s biggest stars do in the short time “sandwiched” between matinee and evening performances. This season takes viewers behind the scenes with Ahmad Simmons (Hadestown), Teal Wicks (The Cher Show), Rob McClure (Beetlejuice), Evan Todd (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Bradley Gibson (The Lion King), Rebecca Eichenberger (My Fair Lady), Jessica Ernest (Chicago), Isabelle McCalla (The Prom), Charity Angél Dawson (Waitress), and Ellyn Marie Marsh (Pretty Woman).

Each 13-minute episode will be released on ALL ARTS digital platforms first and will then be paired up for premiere on the ALL ARTS broadcast channel. Season 1 episodes were viewed nearly 1,000,000 times and drew fans from across the U.S. As one fan expressed after last season’s “Hamilton” finale episode, “I hope this continues! My favorite Broadway series I’ve seen.” Another commented on YouTube, “I had a mini binge session with these videos. I love them so much!”
