It's Showtime with Call Me Adam June 4 Guests: Jeremy Scott Blaustein and Sam Given


The first half-hour of the show, I got to speak with Jeremy Scott Blaustein, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award nominated Producer and now Author of The Home For Wayward Ladies, the #1 gay fiction paperback new release best seller on Jeremy and I had a lots to talk about! We started off with his producing and seamlessly eased into his writing. One of the things I found most inspiring about Jeremy's interview was the he had always wanted to be writer and while he took a detour into Broadway producing, he never let go of that dream, and then finally he took the leap to pursue his dream full time and it has really started to pay off for him.

In the second half-hour I got to speak with actor Sam Given, who's currently starring in the Off-Broadway musical The Zombies: A Musical and performing around NYC as his alter ego "Millie Grams." My favorite part of Sam's interview was really getting inside of Sam's life to find out just how awesome and supportive his mom is of him. She is a true example of unconditional love and support! I hope any parent out there who is struggling with finding out about their child's sexuality, can learn something from Sam's mom. On the lighter side of things, it was fun to find out that while Sam is super comfortable applying drag make-up he has a hard time with the Zombie make-up when getting ready for The Zombies: A Musical, playing at Peter Jay Sharp Theatre in NYC from June 12-July 13.

There was a technical glitch during "Back To Black" by Glee. The song stopped playing midway through from 47:06-47:30. Then everything resumes as normal.
