Once a month the intrepid editor of our sister site The Broadway Blog, Tom Mizer, sits down with a member of the theater community. This month he chats up Amanda Green. Check it out:

Amanda Green is hands down one of the sharpest lyricists working in music theater today. I’ll never forget the first time I heard her sing her ode to codependence, “If You Leave Me…Can I Go To?” a bitingly funny yet surprisingly touching plea; I knew then and there that she was something special. Now, everybody knows it–with two big (and diverse) shows making headlines. First up, the exuberant and high-flying cheerleader musical Bring It On just began a major national tour. Then in the Spring, the La Jolla Playhouse will see the world premiere of Hands on a Hard Body, Amanda’s collaboration with Pulitzer Prize winner Doug Wright and Trey Anastasio (Phish!)
