Special Episode: A.J. Shively on Learning Irish Dance for ‘Paradise Square’


On today’s episode, Matt is in conversation with fellow Central Ohio native, A.J. Shively. After appearing on Broadway in “La Cage aux Folles” and “Bright Star” (the latter for which he was nominated for a Drama Desk Award), he is back on the main stem in “Paradise Square.”

The pair discuss A.J.’s theatrical childhood in both Columbus and New York, how he — an admitted plus-mover — found himself in an Irish dance-heavy role, and the resonant messages of “Paradise Square.”
