1. What's your name and hometown?

Sharron Lynn and a proud native of Miami, Florida. 

2. What is your role/track in your Broadway debut?

I’m a member of the ensemble, and my specialty is the Cheetah.

3. How did you find out you had booked the part?

This opportunity was sent to me via email. It was a lovely Friday morning and I was just starting to decompress after completing a very intense process for the staged reading of a new play. I was once on the North American Tour of The Lion King playing the same role, so it was quite thrilling to have an offer to perform it at home and on Broadway. 

4. What's been the most surprising thing about preparing to perform the show?

Although I’ve done the show before and I’m fairly good about staying on top of my fitness, it’s taken me a bit of time to readjust. I’ve had to be strategic, patient with my body and voice, and respectful of that process. There are many elements to consider in this production, such as the raked stage, and the work is also highly challenging physically. Nothing will prepare you for the rigor of it the way doing it will. 

5. What are you looking forward to most about your experience on Broadway?

Sharing this moment with my family and friends. They’ve expressed an immense amount of pride and that fills me to the brim. Also, getting to perform for enthusiastic audiences that are literally from all over the world in the best city in the world is golden. Lastly, I’m not on tour so I have the luxury of going home to my love and my own bed when the curtain comes down every night. It’s pretty darn sweet! :)
