Backstage With...


Backstage With… is a musical theatre podcast from What Goes On Media, that gets you into the dressing rooms of some of the biggest names in musical theatre.

We tell stories of shows people have worked on, actors they’ve worked with, and things that didn’t necessarily go to plan, on stage and off, and ask about the real issues facing the industry that so many people devote their lives to.

Expect industry secrets, eyebrow raising stories and behind the scenes access.

Presented by Mikey Worrall.

I don’t think I have ever laughed as much in an interview as I did while chatting to Jodie Prenger. She is undoubtedly one of the nicest people in showbiz.

Jodie won the role of Nancy in the 2008 programme I’d Do Anything. She’s since taken on roles in Spamalot, One Man Two Guv’nors and Calamity Jane.

She’s currently starring in Fat Friends - a new musical by Kay Mellor and Nick Lloyd Webber (you might have heard of his father…).

In this episode we're backstage in her dressing room at the Leeds Grand Theatre and as people dash in and out before the show starts, we chatted about her love of comedy, how she deals with divas, and why this show is her ‘electric blanket’.
