STAGE Begins Production on its Third Original Series - We Can Cook Too! - with Host Jeff Blumenkrantz

STAGE, the world’s first streaming network for premium content devoted to the world of theatre, has begun production on its third original series, “We Can Cook Too!” (the title was inspired by the song “I Can Cook Too!” from “On the Town”).  The half-hour episodes are hosted by Tony-nominated composer and performer Jeff Blumenkrantz and feature a musical theatre artist cooking a dish that is connected to an iconic performance or show from his/her past, performing with Jeff at the piano, and playing food-related games.

The first two episodes, featuring special guests Lesli Margherita (“Matilda the Musical,” “Zorro the Musical”) and Andrea McArdle (who originated the role of “Annie” on Broadway), will be shot this Friday in New York City.  Previews of “We Can Cook Too!” will be available on STAGE’s free platform launch in August, with the full episodes launching on the new streaming media network’s subscription-based premium launch in October.
