PR wiz extraordinaire Rick Miramontez spills his cutting-edge plans for the Avvatar roll-out, and replacement book writer Thomas (Mauricio Martinez) dishes about his collaboration with genius director/choreographer Zoey Taylor.

As the Curtain Rises, which was created and recorded during the quarantine, is produced by Berinstein, Alan Seales, and the Broadway Podcast Network and executive-produced by Liz Armstrong. It is edited and features sound design by Bart Fasbender with Avvatar music by Matthew Sklar, sound engineering by Seales, banshee wrangling by Bill Berloni, and direction by Berinstein.
