Raising Our Voices On Rise

Our long-suffering stage manager Adam Grosswirth returns to talk about NBC's new high school musical drama!

NBC having lined up the showrunner from Friday Night Lights, a producer of Hamilton, and the former Ted Mosby for a weekly drama series about a high school putting on a musical, it was made very clear to us that we had better not think of having any guest on to talk about it other than Adam Grosswirth — and since we can take a hint, we were happy to have him on to discuss whether the show hits all the right notes. Around The Dial takes us through The Arrangement, Slings & Arrows and Nailed It! before we ponder the induction of The West Wing‘s “In The Shadow Of Two Gunmen” to the Canon. Then it’s on to the week’s Winner and Loser, and a Game Time that’s a real banger. Warm up your instrument and join us!
