Graham Douglass announced the launch of "The Graham Show", an all-new, weekly web series featuring intimate one-on-one chats with New York's top stage stars and theater professionals, aimed at young theater-lovers everywhere. Designed to inform and inspire, as well as to offer exclusive "backstage access" to the world of Broadway, the interviews will examine what it takes to turn aspirations into standing ovations. Unlike other on-camera interview-based theater programming, "The Graham Show" will focus on educating and inspiring the next generation of theater professionals and patrons. The series, set to launch today, September 28, will be available, free of charge, at www.TheGrahamShow.com.
Among the series' first guests will be Nathan Lane, Michael Urie, Adam Pascal, Thomas Schumacher, Rick Elice, Julia Murney, Roger Rees, John Tartaglia, Kara Lindsay, and Christian Borle. Additional guests will be announced shortly.

"As a lifelong theater fan who grew up far away from the bright lights of Broadway, I wanted to bring this amazing world I've discovered in New York to other young theater lovers everywhere," Graham Douglass said. "What better way to encourage the next generation of theater professionals and make lifelong fans out of future ticket buyers than to teach them about the industry directly from the stars they admire?"
Each episode will feature a 30-40 minute celebrity interview shot at unique locations (including legendary downtown nightlife venue Joe's Pub). Viewers have the option of watching the interviews in their entirety or in shorter, themed segments. New episodes will be posted each Friday. In addition to its weekly interview schedule, TheGrahamShow.com will also be a go-to place for theater news as each Wednesday a new "Instant Graham" will be rolled out, featuring a 60-second run-down of Broadway news and headlines, as well as other exclusive content.
