Actor Hub asked some actors who have trod the boards in the West End and Broadway to tell us their stories and offer some advice on how they got to work in musical theatre.
If you are interested in taking part and sharing your knowledge and anecdotes then get in touch – we would love to hear from you.
Like any business, those who last the longest are the ones who put in the most groundwork.
We spoke to West End actor Nadim Naaman currently understudying Alan and Alfie in One Man, Two Guvnors at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket.
Nadim’s West End credits include The Sound of Music (The Palladium) and The Phantom Of The Opera (Her Majesty’s). He was recently seen in Titanic (Southwark Playhouse), A Little Night Music (Yvonne Arnaud) and Chess (The Union).
