Aaron J. Albano (Newsies), Vicki Noon (First Date), and Sarrah Strimel (Big Fish) share their insights on Broadway "Out-of-Town Tryouts" in the latest episode of Mo Brady and Nikka Graff Lanzarone's show-business podcast, The Ensemblist. The show is now available for download via iTunes and Podbean.

In this edition, Albano chronicles his experiences with Newsies, from Paper Mill Playhouse to Broadway, with Strimel sharing her thoughts on moving from the workshop of Big Fish to its opening night at the Neil Simon Theatre. Noon details her journey from Seattle to New York City, covering all of the female roles in First Date.

The Ensemblist is an inside look at the experience of being a Broadway performer — from the first on. It aims to give listeners the opportunity to get to know new performers and the great work they do onstage.
