Episode 71, "Replay of interview with Zack Allen, director of Knoxville Children's Theatre" from 2012
Here is an excerpt from of one of the first episodes of The Sounds of Knoxville Theatre Podcast, from Episode 4 way back in 2012. It's an interview with Zack Allen, the director of the then-Children's Theatre of Knoxville. Sadly we lost Zack very recently and Knoxville's theatre world is still reeling. An extremely moving Celebration of Life was held for Zack at Clarence Brown Theatre on November 4th, and stories were shared of his immense influence on the children, parents and the theatre community of Knoxville and beyond. I hope you enjoy hearing some of his own thoughts on his life and the important place he held children's theatre. He will be greatly missed.

Episode 65, "Jesus Christ Superstar"
This week I enlist the assistance of some of Knoxville's theatrical brain trust to give me their opinions on NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar - Live", as well as give a brief overview of the history of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's 1971 Rock Opera. It's a controversial production, and Knoxville is no stranger to controversial opinions - both theatrical, religious and otherwise - and this episode seeks to dig a little into what Webber and Rice were trying to say with their take on the last days in the life of Jesus Christ.
