Video Interview with Ben Jackson Walker: Broadway Dreams Come True In And JulietNov 22, 2023
Romeo is one of literature's most famous characters and now he is being embodied by Ben Jackson Walker who is making his Broadway debut in the new hit musical & Juliet.
After seeing the show a few weeks ago, I was so excited to have the opportunity to speak with him. I haven't been able to get the songs out of my head because they are the soundtrack to my life. The show tells a fresh, new story about Romeo & Juliet.
The cast is fantastic in bringing this musical to life! I was already into the show even before it started as some of the actors come out on stage & interact with the audience before the musical begins. It's a great way to get the audience even more hyped up!
In this interview Ben answered my call to reveal:
- What it's like to make his Broadway debut in & Juliet
- The challenges of performing on Broadway
- Stage Mishaps
- Second Chances
- How someone takes time off in a Broadway show
- So much more
