Mary Ann McSweeney has played enough shows on Broadway to be really close to having played in every physical theatre on Broadway. She's the original bassist for Avenue Q, You're a Good Man Charlie Brown, Far From Heaven, and Silence. But she has subbed for periods on dozens of other shows including The Book of Mormon, Sister Act, Next to Normal, Miss Saigon, Billy Elliot, Newsies, and many more! We talk about her phenomenal career as a Broadway bassist, her side projects, how she gets around NYC with such a big instrument, and what new work she's picked up during the pandemic. As a bonus: we have listener questions starting at 42:44!
