On this episode of The Ensemblist, Nikka and Mo spoke to three American actors about what it’s like to take their Broadway experience across the pond and perform in London’s West End. It’s a rare opportunity that comes about in a variety of surprising ways. Since all three guests started their careers on Broadway, they each explain how the opportunity arose, how the West End traditions compare to Broadway’s, and how their lives changed because of the experience.
