Exclusive Podcast: Broadway's Backbone with HAMILTON's Lauren Boyd

March 22, 2019

BroadwayWorld is excited to bring you new episodes of Broadway's Backbone- apodcast dedicated to the men and woman of the ensemble: the chorus of dancers, singers, and actors that are the foundation of every Broadway musical. These often-unsung gypsies are the hardest working people on the boards and are Broadway's backbone.

Each episode features an interview with a Broadway vet, in which they speak about their life, career and dreams, and the topics that aren't always shared. The life of a gypsy maybe full of passion, but not always filled with glamour. Each guest shares intimate details about their journey. There is no mud slinging, but expect a little dirt. The podcast is in honor of the folks of the ensemble and the people who plan to be them.

With dance as her greatest outlet, Lauren Boyd grew up only watching PBS and three VHS tapes over and over. This led her from bun head to dancing on pavement with Mickey Mouse to a Broadway debut in Hamilton. She wanted it with her innermost being and honestly did something every day that was going to lead her to the Great White Way. With a combination of class, sass and the knowledge that the soul needs to be fed, it's her authentic faith as a foundation that keeps her sane.
