Growin' Up Broadway Chats with 'Central Park' Songwriters Samsel & Anderson


On the latest video edition of Growin Up Broadway, Tim McDonald and SJ Arnegger catch up on all the latest Broadway and theatre education initiatives. Joining the video podcast this week are the fantastic songwriting team Samsel & Anderson. Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson are the songwriting team behind Disney's Olaf's Frozen Adventure, the upcoming Off-Broadway musical Between the Lines and the 2022 world premiere of the musical adaptation of The Book Thief. Now their songs can be heard each week on the new Apple TV animated musical series Central Park brought to you by the minds of Loren Bouchard (Bob's Burgers) and Josh Gad (Frozen, The Book of Mormon).

Kate and Elyssa also take part in the Growin' Up Broadway rapid fire musical theatre quiz, but this time two unannounced guests join in on the fun! Watch as Jodi Picoult and Jeff Calhoun surprise Kate and Elyssa!
