Welcome to My First Time, where we talk to Broadway stars who made their Broadway debuts in the ensemble to talk about why that experience helped shape them as an artist. As they’ve ascended up the title pages of our Playbills and descended the towers of backstage dressing rooms to floor closer to the stage level, I’ve been curious as to whether they’ve considered that time doing ensemble work as formative, or merely a stepping stone to bigger and better things.
