#78: Creating Characters

May 1, 2016

Sometimes, the most fun (and challenging) thing about ensemble work is playing all sorts of different characters throughout a single show! You can be anything from the fanciest royal personage to an anthropomorphic inanimate object and do a cross as a townsperson or two- all in the same day's work. We sat down with truly awesome Broadway ensemblists Jennifer Smith, Gabrielle Ruiz, and Jeremy Woodard and talked to them about how they like to create their characters, some memorable onstage experiences, and why it's so much fun.
