It's the Spring 2015 Theatre Roundtable! In this episode, special guests Josh Rhodes and Lee Wilkins sit down with Mo and Nikka to discuss some of the musicals that opened in the spring. We talk about the shows, how they used their ensemblists, and some of our favorite performances. Wanna hear what we thought of Honeymoon in Vegas, An American in Paris, Finding Neverland and more? Well, take a listen!
about Josh and Lee: This dynamic duo is responsible for the Broadway choreography in this season’s It Shoulda Been You, as well as First Date, Cinderella, and many more! They never stop working, ever. It's amazing. Josh and Lee have also had long and varied careers as ensemblists in Fosse, Chicago, Spamalot and Kiss Me, Kate among others, and you may remember Josh from our Broadway Bares episode!

While an exciting plethora of new musicals has popped up this past (2014-2015) season, over half of the ensemblists' contracts were in the revivals. That got us thinking: What are the differences between being in the Original Broadway Cast of a brand spankin' new musical and revisiting a well-loved classic? What are the similarities? What about when- shhh, we'll just let our three fabulous guests talk! They have a wealth of experience with originating roles and replacing in both new musicals and revivals, so take a listen...
John Bolton (Damn Yankees, How To Succeed..., Titanic, Contact, Spamalot, Curtains, A Christmas Story)
Ericka Hunter (Flower Drum Song, 42nd Street, Rock of Ages, Doctor Zhivago)
Ashley Yeater (The Producers, Follies, Big Fish, Pippin, Gigi)
