Welcome to THE FRIDAY SIX: Q&As with your favorite Broadway stars. Want to know what hooked them to a career in the theater? Their dream roles? Their Broadway crushes? Read on!

In this week's edition, we caught up with Jenny Jules, who stars as 'Tituba' in The Crucible, playing at the Walter Kerr Theatre.


What is the first Broadway show you ever saw?

The first Broadway show I ever saw was Julius Caesar directed by Daniel Sullivan and starring Denzel Washington as Brutus and Eamonn Walker as Mark Antony.

What is your most unique pre-show ritual?

I don't know if I have any unique rituals. Depending on what type of space I'm working in and how many people are in my dressing room my routine changes to suit the show. I adapt to my environment.

What is your most memorable "the show must go on" moment?

My most memorable "the show must go on moment" was in 2001 doing a beautiful Alice Childress play called Wine in The Wilderness at the Tricycle Theatre in London. I was feeling very nauseous- I'd caught some food bug. I would energetically throw myself around the stage as Tomorrow Marie and I remember in the only small window that I had when I go off stage to "use the bathroom" I threw up in a carefully placed off stage bucket. Wiped my mouth and came bounding back on. Feeling awful of course but miraculously Doctor Footlights helped me get through the show.

What is the one role you want to play before you die?

Macbeth

Who is your Broadway crush?

Cynthia Erivo. Do you really need to ask why?

Where can people follow you online?

If anyone cares to follow me my Twitter handle is @juicyjules555.
