The story might go on and on and on but our three part interview with Tony Award winner Richard Malby, Jr. must come to an end.

In our last discussion, Richard discusses how an observant stage manager got him working on Miss Saigon, why Arthur Laurents isn’t the next Agatha Christie, when he knew Big: The Musical wasn’t going to work, and what the secret is behind his collaboration with composer David Shire.

Note: Unfortunately, this interview had some audio issues. We tried to fix it to the best of our ability. Thank you so much for your patience.
