Ellyn Marsh will be joined by a brand new co-host for Obsessed with Disappeared – Broadway performer and vocalist Joey Taranto. Before you fall in love with him during his podcasting debut, study up on five facts you need to know about Obsessed with Disappeared's Joey Taranto.
Seasoned Broadway Performer
Not one, not two – but three! Joey Taranto has performed in three shows on Broadway, including Kinky Boots, Rock of Ages, and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. He's solidified himself as a seasoned Broadway veteran, and we know that his stage presence is going to draw all of you listeners in from his first episode.
New Orleans Native
Follow Joey on social media (@itsjoeytaranto), and you'll see part of his tagline, repping his hometown pride of New Orleans, Louisiana: "NOLA transplant screaming on Broadway"
Whether he is performing with an ensemble of 20+ or he is standing alone onstage, Joey captures the attention of all audience members. In fact, Joey recently headlined his own solo show at Joe's Pub – his second solo show there, to be clear. His first independent show at the venue, "Dude Sings Like Lady," debuted to a sold out (!!!) audience.
Performed with John Legend in Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert
Over Easter weekend in 2018, John Legend starred in Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert. If you caught the unreal cast that night, you saw Joey belting and slaying in the ensemble! Seriously, go look the show up if you haven't already.
Revival! Ellyn Marsh Co-Star
That's right – Joey and Ellyn could be seen onstage together at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in Kinky Boots. Did you catch them onstage? Their chemistry, in our opinion, cannot be matched. (There! We said it!)
