About The Show

Michigan’s own (and 6-time MSW alum) Joe Carroll returns with his wife Alex for an incredible evening of music. Joe was last seen in Frozen on Broadway and Alex in Come From Away! Hang out with Joe and Alex as they share how they’ve made their relationship work through the ups and downs of show business. From a budding college romance, to seven Broadway credits and everything in between, The Best Bad Idea will feature pop favorites and iconic songs from their Broadway musicals while pulling back the curtain on what life is really like as a married Broadway couple.
