Up Here Podcast : Episode 3: Signs (with Steven Levenson, Mae Whitman, Carlos Valdes, and the Lopezes)


On this episode, Julian and Maddy speak with Steven Levenson, writer, showrunner, and executive producer on Up Here. You probably know him from Tick Tick Boom, Fosse/Verdon, Masters of Sex, or Dear Evan Hansen, which he won a Tony for.

They talk with him about watching the original stage production of Up Here back in 2015, how his own struggles with writer’s block compare with Lindsay’s in episode 3, and how a bicoastal writers room created a wacky world of comedy, romance, song, and dance.

They also check in with Mae Whitman and Carlos Valdes who play Lindsay and Miguel to talk about signs, the astrological kind. And of course, they talk about the music in episode three with Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez in the song segment.

Up Here Podcast
Welcome to the Up Here Down Low, where we look behind the scenes of the new Hulu musical romcom Up Here! We know that Hulu released all eight episodes at once, but we like to do things a little more traditionally around here. What can we say? We’re romantics! Every week we’ll be talking with the cast, crew, and creators of the show about how they make musical TV magic.

Hosted by Madison Cross and Julian Goza.
