New York, NY (May 19, 2021) – Tony Award®-winning producer Hal Luftig, in association with the Broadway Podcast Network (BPN), proudly presents the final installment in the first season of his popular new podcast, Broadway Biz, with special guest Tony Award winner Cyndi Lauper. Broadway Biz highlights the careers and creatives that are a part of building a Broadway show. The special episode is now available where podcasts are available.
The second season of the popular podcast will be available in Fall 2021. Make sure to listen on the newly developed Broadway Podcast Network app.

In this special episode, Ms. Lauper and Mr. Luftig speak about her process writing for the Tony Award-winning megahit Kinky Boots (specifically "Not My Father's Son"), and the importance of her breaking the glass ceiling for female composers and lyricists when she won her Tony Award. Lauper also talks about the influences of the women in her family on her growing up and how their lives shaped what she thought of womanhood, plus the type of woman she wanted to be.
If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes an army, a peace corps, and a village to birth a Broadway show. Tony and Olivier Award-winning producer Hal Luftig (Kinky Boots, Plaza Suite, and many more) has had successes, failures, and everything in between. Now, with humor and heart, he sits down weekly with a different artist, expert, or industry leader to chat about every step and specialty in the process that gets a show from idea to audience. New episodes will launch weekly every Wednesday. Find it exclusively from the Broadway Podcast Network at BPN.FM/BroadwayBiz and subscribe on Apple Podcast or wherever podcasts are available.
