Kate Pazakis Dishes on Past UMPO Shows and Behind the Scenes Details
For years now, Kate Pazakis‘ UMPO has been steadily optimizing her passion of film, turning them into loving spoofs that even those unfamiliar with the movie sent-up can still enjoy. With her talented partners, they take cult film favorites and match them up with pop tune soundtracks for mash-ups of wit, fun, incredible singing and much laughter. UMPO’s latest creation THE UNAUTHORIZED MUSICAL PARODY OF HOCUS POCUS opened September 29, 2016 at the Rockwell Table & Stage.
Kate, thank you for taking the time to chat withBroadwayWorld and myself.
THE UNAUTHORIZED MUSICAL PARODY OF HOCUS POCUS is your eighth UMPO production. What can we expect from this particular production?

I am so honored to have one of my favorite performers in this cast playing Winifred Sanderson – Tony Award winner, Marissa Jaret Winokur. When she won the Tony 13 years ago, I cried. I even cut out her picture and put it on my vision board that year. We are one week into rehearsal and I have to say, this just might be the best UMPO yet!
