This fall, the musical Swept Away, which is based on the music of Bob Crawford’s band The Avett Brothers is coming to broadway, and to celebrate, we’re re-sharing our conversation with writer, John Logan, and lead actor, John Gallagher Jr.

 

This conversation was recorded just after Swept Away premiered at the Berkeley Repertory Theater in Berkeley, CA in January 2022, and when you hear the passion from the folks who brought the musical to life, you’ll understand why the show has been such a great success (and why you should go see it).

 

John Logan is Swept Away’s writer whose previous credits include Any Given Sunday, Skyfall, & Red.

 

 John Gallagher Jr. is Swept Away’s lead actor who previously starred in American Idiot & The Newsroom.

 

Learn more about the musical at sweptawaymusical.com and by following @sweptawaymusical on Instagram.

This episode originally aired as RTN #219 on January 17, 2022. Original editing by Gary Fletcher. Rebroadcast editing by Ben Sawyer.
