Due to the COVID-19 crisis, True Crime Obsessed on Broadway has been delayed, but when Broadway reopens, we will be there!

On June 1, hit podcast True Crime Obsessed will become the first podcast performed live on Broadway. Co-hosts Patrick Hinds, previously host of Theater People podcast and a creator of the podcast Broadway Backstory, and Gillian Pensavalle, host and creator of The Hamilcast: A Hamilton Podcast, will take the stage at the Helen Hayes Theatre.

True Crime Obsessed sits at the intersection of true crime and comedy, recapping true crime documentaries “with humor, heart, and a little sass,” says Hinds.

“It’s important to us that we make clear that we find humor in these dark stories without ever victim-blaming or shaming and without ever making fun of the actual crime, but, you know, each one of these documentaries has an idiot prosecutor or just a corrupt cop who is also bad at their job. And they are just ripe for the jokes!” Hinds tells Playbill.
