Girls5Eva is back with a brand new season premiering on Peacock on May 5th!
A one-of-a-kind ’90s hit girl group that’s been through the pop music machine reunites to give their dreams another shot. This time they will try again on their own terms.
BroadwayWorld caught up with Busy Phillips and Paula Pell to discuss what audiences can expect from the new season, who they’re channeling through their characters, and more.
“I come from very small scale musical theatre, where you used to sing a lot. I would always be the belt-y kind of songs. So I really learned with pop music…you can go with a really quiet, super small tone, instead of blowing it up,” Pell explained.
The pair also discussed how they approached the singing and musical aspects of the show as comedians.
“It’s been a very steep learning curve for Paula and myself in terms of studio vocal recording and that whole part of the show. I think at the very end of this season, as I told you said, I really thought I was a pop star,” Phillips explained.
The new season also includes Sara Bareilles, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Gray Henson, Ashley Park, Erika Henningsen, Daniel Breaker, and more.
