Broadway veteran Betsy Struxness: Ep. 53

She was an original cast member of Hamilton. She’s performed in WickedMatildaMemphis and so many more shows. Not to mention guest spots on Louie and Broad City. Actress, performer, and fellow pro wrestling nerd Betsy Struxness tells me all about life on the Great White Way.

What’s Lin-Manuel Miranda’s personal nickname for her? How was it meeting Barack Obama – twice? When does a performer know it’s time to leave a show for good? Betsy answers all!

You can find Betsy on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook, and read a piece she recently wrote for The Ensemblist about the importance of ensembles on Broadway. You can, of course, also follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat.
