ABOUT THE ENSEMBLIST
The Ensemblist is an inside look at the experience of being a Broadway performer- from the first rehearsal through performing eight shows a week and beyond. Whether you’re an experienced theatre professional or a passionate fan, The Ensemblist gives listeners the opportunity to get to know new performers and the great work they do onstage, while also shedding light on some of the hidden innerworkings of Broadway. Do you sit down to read your Playbill at a Broadway show and wonder exactly who all those names are below the title? The Ensemblist focuses on those unsung heroes of the theatre world- the ensemble members making each show tick.
We are changing the conversation about what it means to be a successful artist on Broadway. Episodes cover topics that the general public may not know about- being a swing, replacing someone in a show, dancing with a partner night after night, what being “in tech” means, what it's like to dance captain or create new work from the ground up. Created and hosted by Mo Brady (The Addams Family, "SMASH") and Nikka Graff Lanzarone (Chicago, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown), The Ensemblist is the only podcast that shows you Broadway from the inside out.
