Tony Award winner, John Gallagher Jr. (Spring Awakening, American Idiot) joins Beth and Sarah remotely from the frigid tundra of Brooklyn to talk about a song that can only be appreciated by those (like Beth) who experienced true love in high school. John recounts his journey from playing a street urchin with sideburns in Delaware to becoming a Broadway star, including the years he spent wearing a Rent hat before he had ever seen or heard any songs from the show. They talk about CD and cassette technology, the similarities/differences between Spring Awakening and Rent, and John talks about doing karaoke with Sarah's sister! Say "hi" to your sisters, everyone!
