Set the kettle to a full boil and put on a quality flick! It’s a new episode of _Go Fact Yourself!_
Alice Ripley is a Tony Award-winning Broadway icon, whose trailblazing performances include _Side Show _and _Next to Normal_. She recently appeared in the one-woman show, _The Pink Unicorn_, which is being adapted into a film. She’ll tell us all about that… and why she’s one of the reasons that this podcast exists! (Hint: She would be the expert if J. Keith were a guest!)
Lee Wilkof is an actor who originated the role of Seymour in the musical _Little Shop of Horrors --_ and he appeared with Alice Ripley in a revival that was headed to Broadway … until it wasn’t. Lee has been acting for decades on stage and screen -- including the badge of honor for any performer: numerous appearances on “Law & Order.” You can see Lee in the short film _Any Song__ _and as an expert on episode 67 of _Go Fact Yourself._
