VIDEO: THE CHAOS TWINS Are Joined by FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME
The chaos continues on Wednesday with Tarik Davis, Aneesa Folds, Chris Sullivan, and Anthony Veneziale.
This week, the chaos continues with "The Chaos Twins" with Sasha Hutchings and Nik Walker. What's it all about? "In a world of extremes, where the divides are deep and the struggles are real, sometimes, the only way back to the calm... is Chaos," say Sasha and Nik.
"Enter The Chaos Twins. Join us, two Broadway artists/goofballs, as we break through the noise and break down current events, with our unique brand of humor and insight. A talk show filled with special guests, non-sequiturs, stories, trivia and more, all aimed to help us find our true north again... by any means necessary."
Tune in today, November 18 (4pm ET) to watch the next episode right here at BroadwayWorld. This week's special guests are Tarik Davis, Aneesa Folds, Chris Sullivan, and Anthony Veneziale of Freestyle Love Supreme!
