The Palace Theater in Waterbury has a Christmas presentation to brighten theater-goers holidays. It has initiated a new streaming product to keep their loyal audiences very well entertained. Thanks to Dr. Stuart Brown, who created his own 24\/7 radio station devoted to Broadway music, he will host the Palace podcast, titled \u201cBroadway Buzz,\u201d sponsored by Webster Bank. Known as the dean of students, Brown holds the position of director of student services at UCONN\u2019s Waterbury campus. The excitement generated for the podcast that launched on Dec. 22 is due to the podcast programming. It will feature selections of holiday Broadway shows that have been presented at the Palace since it reopened in 2005. \u201cI\u2019ll be hosting the holiday episode and include music as well as information about Broadway shows that many people are not aware of,\u201d said Brown. As an example, he said, \u201cDid you know that \u2018How the Grinch Stole Christmas\u2019 presented 15 shows a week when it opened with a running time of 90 minutes? Its first week topped the box office of \u201cWicked.\u2019\u201d Theater buffs are bound to love this Palace podcast. Other shows featured include: \u201cA Christmas Carol: The Musical\u201d and \u201cElf: The Musical.\u201d Expect to learn how the Dickens\u2019 story became a musical and how the production of this musical enveloped the audience. One of Brown\u2019s many interesting fun facts is that it was also one of one of the longest running holiday shows. As for \u201cElf,\u201d Brown will fill you in on the difference between the stage production and the film. Considering that Brown\u2019s 24\/7 online radio station, \u201cSounds of Broadway,\u201d reaches 180,000 listeners per month from countries all over the world, the Palace podcast episodes are likely to become very popular. Brown has 635 musicals in his database and is proud that he not only features music of the most popular shows, but numbers from some of the more obscure shows as well. \u201cThere\u2019s a lot more great music than in \u201cRagtime,\u201d \u201cMy Fair Lady,\u201d and \u201cSouth Pacific,\u201d said Brown. While he may have more Broadway music in his extensive playlist than any other radio station, he certainly has a lot of information that many Broadway disc jockeys don\u2019t have. So why a podcast for the Palace? \u201cA podcast makes it easy for listeners to access and hear episodes over many of their devices including their cell phones and car radios. It\u2019s also a way to draw young audiences. In today\u2019s age, a podcast is a way to reach out,\u201d described Brown who is doing the Palace podcast as a volunteer. Considering his devotion to Broadway and all theater, this Palace podcast may soon make Brown known not only as dean of students, but dean of Broadway.
