This week on The Broadway Cast, Playbill welcomes Tony nominee Shalita Grant, most recently seen on the Delacorte stage in The Public Theater’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, and on television in NCIS: New Orleans; Henry Lewis, star and co-writer of The Play That Goes Wrong, now playing on Broadway; and Alison Wright, most recently seen on Broadway in Sweat, and onscreen in The Americans and Feud.

In the latest episode—all about acting—Grant recalls her Juilliard audition and discusses the value in actors learning the business of theatre; Wright opens up about returning to the stage after a five-year break; and Lewis details his, and The Play That Goes Wrong’s journey to Broadway.

The actors chat about the moments that inspired them to pursue acting, their training, some of the differences between performing for the stage and screen, and what’s up next for each of them.

Listen to the episode below:

Each episode, hosted by Broadway vet Ben Cameron (Wicked, Aida), features a mix of guests who make Broadway what it is: the stars, the creatives, the notable movers and shakers, and more.
