My favorite web series of the moment: “Side by Side with Susan Blackwell.” Susan is best known for her work on Broadway in [title of show], but her true calling is as the irreverent host of her own webisodes on Broadway.com. Basically she interviews Broadway actors and actresses…but it’s so much more than that. I love Susan for her intrusive questions and lack of appropriate personal space. It’s a must watch!
In the first episode, Susan eats breakfast in bed with Sutton Foster, takes a carriage ride in Central Park with Jonathan Groff, and dines at Hooters with Laura Benanti.
Episode 2 features Susan painting with Gavin Creel, getting a pedicure with Kelli O’Hara, and taking a bus tour with Beth Leavel.
In the most recent episode, Susan does pilates with Will Swenson, plays DJ Hero with Lin-Manuel Miranda, and helps Andrea Martin with her online dating profile.
