The Band’s Visit is one of those Broadway musicals that does not have an ensemble, per se, but in which every actor is working together to present a cohesive point of view. Yes, there are leading roles and supporting roles, but more than in most musicals the entire company of actors, musicians, and actor/musicians create a mood, a feeling and a sense of place. And so we honor their remarkable run on Broadway with this show, featuring some of our favorite stories about The Band’s Visit.
The Ensemblist is back in your podcast feed, to share some of the very best stories from our blog this spring, read by the actors who wrote them. We’ll hear in their own words about what happens when you get to perform with your childhood idol, what happens when you lose – and then rediscover – your artistic passion and more.
