In the Heights + Moby
On this week's Richard Crouse Show Podcast we meet two of the stars of "In the Heights," the highly anticipated film adaptation of the Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway smash hit show. You know Jimmy Smits from everything from "NYPD Blue" and "The West Wing" to "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith" and "How To Get Away with Murder." He plays Kevin Rosario, owner of his own taxi cab service in In the heights. Joining him is Olga Merediz, who originated the role of "Abuela" Claudia, the loving matriarch of the barrio, in the Broadway show and now stars in the movie. Then, I have a no holds barred conversation with musician, songwriter, singer, producer, and animal rights activist Moby. He has a new album called "Reprise" and a documentary called "Moby Doc" available right now. in the interview we talk about everything from using alcohol and drugs in a misguided attempt to find happiness to screwing up the courage to ask David Bowie to duet on Heroes… on acoustic guitar in his living room!
