Beautiful: The Carole King Musical has been on Broadway for five years now in New York City telling the story of Carole King’s life through her many hits like It’s Too Late, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, So Far Away, I Feel the Earth Move, (You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman and more. Kristen speaks with Evan Todd, who plays Jerry Goffen (Carole King’s husband) in the show. Catch Adam and the cast of Beautiful now on Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in NYC (buy tickets HERE) , or see the touring cast perform the show closer to home at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, January 8-20th 2019.

After Thanksgiving it’s Black Friday, and then comes Small Business Saturday. Kristen speaks with Adam Leiter, the Executive Director of East Passyunk Avenue’s Business Improvement District about Small Business Saturday and the importance of shopping small. East Passyunk Avenue in Philadelphia is a great spot to shop small, with lots of unique stores within a short walking distance from one another, and a number of deals offered that day. Visit a local small business in your area (or 20!) this Saturday, November 24th for Small Business Saturday and help keep small, curated, locally owned businesses alive.

Then Kristen speaks with Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, the Writers and Directors of the new Walt Disney Animation Studios film Ralph Breaks the Internet. The movie is the sequel to 2012’s hugely successful Wreck it Ralph. The pair talk about the new adventures of their characters Ralph and Penelope, getting all of the Disney Princesses together for the film, the film’s stars John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman, just how difficult it is to animate THE INTERNET and more. Ralph Breaks the Internet hits theaters November 21st.

Finally, the folks from the Philadelphia Wings stopped by with the newest member of the Wings family – Wingston! Wingston is not a bird, or a dinosaur… but rather a DRAGON, and he’s the newest Philadelphia Mascot to join our crew. He’s super tall, with a spinning head and a fantastic personality. Catch him at the Wings Home Opener, coming up Saturday, December 15th. Find tickets and info HERE.
