This week, in our fifth podcast, Whatsonstage.com Radio has a chat with Ben Elton and Queen’s Brian May about their record-breaking We Will Rock You and author Ted Chapin (whose day job is president and chief executive of the powerful Rodgers & Hammerstein Organisation) recalls the thrill of working as a lowly production assistant on the premiere of Stephen Sondheim’s Follies, which he writes about in his new book Everything Was Possible.
