Exclusive Podcast: Broadway's Backbone with Dale Hensley Photo Exclusive Podcast: Broadway's Backbone with Dale Hensley
by Broadway's Backbone - Dec 11, 2019

Broadway's Dale Hensley went from milking cows and putting on shows in his living room in the rural midwest to a thriving Broadway career that has spanned almost four decades. It took him 10 years living in New York before making his debut, and then he never stopped. He has learned that a prepared understudy is the only option, getting out of his own way was essential and finding an outside passion kept him sane. Life in the 'all about me' of showbiz can be exhausting. His Act 3 now includes working with special needs groups and bringing Broadway to them. With the group AHRC, he has created a program that enriches the hidden talents in a group of people often forgotten. In return it has opened a door to his heart. Upcoming shows will be Wednesday Dec. 11th at 11:30 Rudolf and Wed. Dec. 18th 11:30 Scrooge. Both at the Theatre Center 1627 Broadway.
