A married couple’s journey through musical theatre.

Episodes

This week, we round out this February's Black Theatre History series with a look at musical revues, Donald McKayle, and his 1981 revue, Sophisticated Ladies! We discuss jazz, modern dance, and Warren uses this episode to say "scat" more times than he has ever said it! It's a toe tapping good time in this episode of Tone Deaf!

This week we cover one of K's all time favorite musicals to watch and be in, Once on This Island. We discuss two versions that K was in before watching the American Musical Theatre of San Jose's production. Will Warren have the same fondness that K has for this musical? 

We also discuss colorism, the importance of having an all-Black cast, Rosa Guy, and just how dark the original Little Mermaid was!

This is a long one but we had a lot to say on it!

K introduces Warren to his second opera, George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess. Along the way, we talk about an amazing Black opera singer, Anne Wiggins Brown, we discuss representation in theatre, and Warren writes a sequel.

Correction: K mentions the "Rap Saturday's Voyeur" with the incorrect year. The year should have been 2005 and not 2003.

This week, K and Warren talk about the inaugural production of the local musical, SLAC Cabaret. We discuss corn flakes, people who look related, the Salt Lake Airport, and Multi-level marketing! Thank you again to Latoya Cameron for the tickets!

Sorry that we've been gone for so long, folks. We are back with Warren's least favorite musical!

This week, K and Warren tackle Carousel as a tribute to someone who was an amazing dad - very much unlike the protagonist of this show! We discuss red flags, mill workers, and K's awakening as a furry! We promise it makes sense! This episode got surprisingly raunchy and has some of the most cursed content to ever grace Tone Deaf! Find out just how much Carousel doesn't hold up in this week's episode!

Does this episode make our podcast true crime if it features a guy who played Ted Bundy? No? Well, we tried.

This week, we finish our Hairspray vs. Hairspray with a look at the 2007 film adaptation of Hairspray. Warren vores the audience, K overshares, and we get probably the worst Christopher Walken Impersonation (disagree with us in the review section, we dare you). Will this one win the Hairspray vs Hairspray Champion belt or will it be TKOed by Hairspray live?

We're also not a Sports podcast.

It's time for another head to head as we begin the knockdown, drag-out fight between two versions of Hairspray!

K and Warren cover the 2016 NBC Live version of Hairspray and spend a lot of the time being thirsty about Jennifer Hudson. We're sorry for us. Additionally, Warren gets confused, K sings, and we get mad at Dick Clark's American Bandstand and The Buddy Deane Show! What're you wearing?

We couldn't give this episode the name we really wanted to so use your imagination!

This week, K and Warren cover the  "whimsical" movie musical, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Does it deserve to be called a classic or should it have been taken out to the junk yard and melted down for scrap? This episode is wild, y'all. Also, we decided we are now a Soap (1977 - 1981) podcast. We hope you understand.

This week, K and Warren continue their Annie vs Annie vs Annie smackdown with the 1999 Wonderful World of Disney version of Annie. We learn that the success of a plan rests on if Bernadette Peters is involved, we discuss the awesomeness of Victor Garber and Audra McDonald, and Warren gets bonus husband points in this episode of Tone Deaf!
