Welcome to Episode 37 of Show Tunes with Kate Botello! Coming up: two types of princesses. We’ll hear Cinderella stories - then slap some Icy Hot on your teeth for tunes about beauty pageants! Speaking of princess, at Intermission our friend Julie Garnye will be here to talk about the Los Angeles theatre scene and her role as a Disney Queen! In Act Two, surprisingly good performances from actors who weren’t really known as singers before they landed a big role in a movie musical.
