Welcome to My First Time, where we talk to Broadway stars who made their Broadway debuts in the ensemble to talk about why that experience helped shape them as an artist. For many of our favorite Broadway stars, their start in the ensemble helped to form them as artists.
We assembled some pretty brilliant folks to talk about this brilliant show.
Well, friends, we’ve arrived. It’s the ensemblist show of all ensemblist shows. With music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban and a book by James Kirkwood, Jr. and Nicholas Dante, A Chorus Line distills the experience of fighting for what you love, going after what you believe in, and being exactly who you are the whole time, no matter what. Universal themes, yes, but through a specific Broadway lens. Clearly, our love for this masterpiece runs DEEP.
Can you believe we’re on our FOURTH installment of the Containing Multitudes series? It’s almost as if there are ENDLESS ways to balance a career in show business with outside passions, other creative pursuits, and giving back! We said endless. We didn’t say they were easy.
