BWW Interviews: A CHORUS LINE's John Partridge

So many! I mean, I've had great ones too. Even for EastEnders - they saw me in Drowsy Chaperone and asked me to come in - I auditioned, and they literally said, 'He was the worst one, but he is the character.' You can be absolutely shocking but they want you. I've had auditions when I've thought I was fabulous and they've just said, 'No way.' That's what this game is - somebody else's perception of you. One day it's no, then the next is yes. That's what A Chorus Line is - it shows you feelings, expectations, desire. It's all out there.

John Partridge plays Zach in A Chorus Line at the London Palladium from next month.

Carrie Dunn After spending her formative years reading books and ending up with a Masters degree in English literature from King's College London, it was inevitable that Carrie should be a journalist. Her pure and simple delight in the art-form of musical theatre led to the Guardian asking her to be their West End Girl. Since then, she's picked up a PhD, and also written for many other UK publications, including the Times and the Independent. She has many eclectic loves, including sport, karaoke, reality television, MMORPGs, three-volume Victorian novels, the British seaside, embroidery and Veronica Mars.
