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.
My career has led me to meet wonderful people, sing in beautiful places, have truly great experiences on and off stage
We spoke to West End actor Lara Martins currently playing Carlotta in Phantom of the Opera at Her Majestys Theatre, Haymarket.
Lara began her studies in her native Portugal. She went on to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and graduated with a First Class Honours degree.
Since graduating, Lara has enjoyed an international career singing a wide-ranging repertoire, from the operas of Mozart to complex scores written on the 20th and 21st century.
