"The Ensemblist," according to press notes, "is an inside look at the experience of being a Broadway performer — from the first rehearsal through performing eight shows a week and beyond. Whether you're an experienced theatre professional or just a passionate fan, 'The Ensemblist' gives listeners the opportunity to get to know new performers and the great work they do onstage, while also shedding light on some of the hidden innerworkings of Broadway."

The "Out of Town Tryouts" episode features interviews with three actors who have performed in out-of-town tryouts that recently made their way to Broadway: Aaron Albano (Newsies), Vicki Noon (First Date) and Sarrah Strimmel (Big Fish).
