Top 5 Musical Theatre Dynamic Duos with Cogsworth & Lumiere

Top 5 Musical Theatre Dynamic Duos with Cogsworth & Lumiere


Over recent podcast episodes I’ve spoken to a large variety of guests. I’ve spoken to Community Theatre Royalty. As well as that – Josh Piterman (Eps. #011) is now starring as The Phantom on London’s West End and Bob Corff (Eps.#017) is being featured on the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Today I am even luckier to have two guests both being featured in the same amazing ‘based on a true story’ musical.

They need no introduction but I’ll say this…they were employees in an enchanted castle, turned into household items and helped their Master find love and break a spell.

Welcome to Fantastic Fantastix – Lumiere and Cogsworth (aka. The very talented Lachlan O’Brien and Nathan Farrow) to discuss the Top 5 Musical Theatre Dynamic Duos.
