Celia Keenan-Bolger’s podcast Sunday Pancakes Season 1 wrapped up last week with a family affair, but the Tony winner is offering one more small morsel before signing off. In this final minisode, Keenan-Bolger reflects on the first season and looks ahead with hope toward an unknown future.
Over the past 12 episodes, the Tony winner has chatted with Denée Benton, Phillipa Soo, Kelli O'Hara, Zachary Quntio, Erika Henningson, Karen Olivo, Laura Benanti, Joshua Henry, Sara Bareilles, Javier Muñoz, Shakina Nayfack, Ashley Park, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, and Maggie Bolger.
The series offers intimate, candid conversations on the beauty and struggle of humanity and what keeps artists feeling connected, motivated, and curious about the world around them. Among the highlights were discussions about Keenan-Bolger and O'Hara's experience with The Light in the Piazza, Olivo's decision to leave Moulin Rouge! following the the public allegations of abuse by Scott Rudin, and Muñoz and Nayfack's experiences as working artists that are part of the LGBTQIA+ community..
