Elaine Paige on Broadway

Elaine Paige has swapped her Radio 2 studio for the New York stage in recent weeks, whilst playing Carlotta Campion in the successful Broadway transfer of Stephen Sondheim's Follies.

But EP's back for three festive specials - Elaine Paige On Broadway - the second of which celebrates the Year On Broadway. She's joined by David Rooney, Chief Drama Critic at the Hollywood Reporter who reviews Broadway 2011 - including Tony Award-winning The Book Of Mormon, Spiderman, and Daniel Radcliffe's Broadway debut. And EP's special guests - Book Of Mormon's Andrew Rannells; Brooke Shields from the Adams Family; and director and producer Hal Prince who recalls past joys of Broadway while telling EP all about his new Broadway show, Prince Of Broadway. Plus a little Follies Festive Frolicing as EP takes you behind the scenes of Follies at the Marquis Theatre in New York as her co stars - including Bernadette Peters and Ron Raines - stop by her dressing room for a chat in between shows. And always great music celebrating the best of the Broadway Year. Join EP On Broadway as she celebrates the best of the Broadway Year this Christmas.
