Jacqueline B. Arnold, Jenifer Foote, Aaron Kaburick and Christian Dante White Win Ensemblist Awards
The Ensemblist, the online advocate for talented artists working in theatre ensembles, announces the 2018 Ensemblist Award winners: Jacqueline B. Arnold, Jenifer Foote, Aaron Kaburick and Christian Dante White.
Since 2014, The Ensemblist Awards have been bestowed every December to a Broadway performer who "embodies the ensemblist spirit: someone who is talented, skilled, multifaceted, inquisitive and kind." The recipients are always chosen by the previous year's winners as a way for Broadway community members to celebrate artists they respect and admire.
This year's Ensemblist Award recipients were chosen by last year's winners: Anastacia McCleskey (Waitress), Linda Mugleston (My Fair Lady), Beth Johnson Nicely (Chicago) and John Eric Parker (The Book of Mormon). Other previous recipients include Cameron Adams, Gregory Haney, Curtis Holbrook, Ryan Steele, Betsy Struxness and Daniel Watts.
Jacqueline B. Arnold was recently an ensemblist in the world premiere of Moulin Rouge in Boston. She also made her Broadway debut originating one of the three Divas in Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Jenifer Foote's Broadway performing career spans almost two decades from Annie Get Your Gun in 2001 to this season's Tootsie.
Aaron Kaburick originated the role of Robin in Something Rotten!, as well as performing in the recent Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly! from first preview to closing night. Christian Dante White, also was in Hello, Dolly!, where he notably understudied the role of Cornelius Hackl. He is also one of the co-creators of Broadway Legacy.
The Ensemblist is the online advocate for talented artists working in theatre ensembles on Broadway and across the country. What started as an audio podcast for those curious about how Broadway really works turned into an avenue for young and aspiring professional artists to learn more about theatre from in the inside out. The Ensemblist's blog features daily posts from artists about their work and lives, with monthly podcast episodes featuring highlights of those stories.
