Dustin Fuhs & Jim Hill first talk about how this year’s Mardi Gras celebration at the Universal Orlando Resort is different from years previous. They then talk about Universal Pictures’ plans for a movie version of “Wicked,” the long-running Broadway musical


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

Where the booths for the 13 countries represented in the “International Flavors of Carnaval” can found at Universal Studios Florida

What the Universal Orlando production of “Blue Man Group” used to do during the slower times of year to make that theater seem fuller than it actually was

How Chloe Zhao’s version of “Dracula” is going to be a radical departure from the vampire movies that Universal Pictures has previously produced

Why it’s not wise to pass judgment on “Mario Kart: Koopa’s Challenge” based on the videos to date that have come out of the soft opening of Universal Studios Japan’s Super Nintendo World

What was it like to attend a performance of “A Day in the Park with Barney” when this stage show first opened at Universal Studios Florida back in July of 1995
