#168 - July 2019 (feat. Rock of Ages, Shereen Ahmed) The Ensemblist

On this episode, we share an incredible story from Lincoln Center Theatre revival of My Fair Lady - plus our review of Rock of Ages. Shereen became the first woman of color to play Eliza Doolittle on Broadway. While she’s a trailblazer in terms of representation, her love of the show My Fair Lady is something she developed at a very young age. And while the role isn’t one that she imagined playing, there are reasons why she was the perfect choice to take on the part as an understudy in the Lincoln Center Theatre revival. Here, in her own words, is Shereen Ahmed.
