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)
