Podcast Exclusive: The Theatre Podcast with Alan Seales: Ryann Redmond
The first #LadyOlaf in history opens up about her amazing road to Broadway.
This episode is part of the Frozen takeover of The Theatre Podcast for the month of March. Be sure to follow @theatre_podcast on Instagram for all this month's surprises.
Currently starring in Frozen the Musical on Broadway as Olaf, she is the first woman in history to play this role on any stage or screen!
Ryann made her broadway debut as the original Bridget in the Reading, Workshop, World Premiere, National Tour, and Broadway production of Tony Nominated Bring It On: The Musical. She then went on to star alongside Idina Menzel, Anthony Rapp, and LaChanze in the original cast of If/Then in Washington, D.C. and on Broadway before working with Jimmy Buffett in Jimmy Buffett's Escape to Margaritaville on Broadway.
In this episode, Ryann discusses:
- How her Broadway dreams took her from rural Atlanta to NYU Tisch
- What NOT to sing for a college audition (and a few other auditions as well)
- The difficulty of the extremely short run of Escape to Margaritaville
- Why she ran down 8th Ave screaming and crying after receiving her offer to become Olaf
