Here is the description from the Behind the Curtain website:
In a career that spans sixty years, Rita Gardner is the epitome of the word “legend”. While she is best known to audiences as The Girl in The Fantasticks, or as the hip hopping Grandma in The Wedding Singer, Rita’s career has gone from radio to television to theatre to cabaret and now to podcast!
Rita joins Rob & Kevin to discuss such topics as what it was like debuting The Fantasticks, standing by for legends like Barbara Harris, Linda Lavin, and Constance Towers, and how she has quickly become one of the world’s greatest cabaret artists.
