Today on the blog, we welcome Hamilton ensemblist Justice Moore to Broadway and learn about her journey to the Main Stem.
1. What is your name and hometown?
Justice Moore from Dallas, Texas.
2. What is your role/track in your Broadway debut?
“The Bullet” track in the ensemble of Hamilton on Broadway.
3. How did you find out you had booked the part?
I was in Ft. Lauderdale on my dinner break between shows with the Philip Tour of Hamilton when I got the call! I felt so many things in an instant.. joy and gratitude for this dream to soon come true. I felt a sense of accomplishment because of all the hard work it took the get there, and I felt EXTREMELY SCARED because of the huge change about to happen. But I was so ready for it all.
4. What's been the most surprising thing about preparing to perform the show?
Having been in two other companies of Hamilton (Chicago and Philip Tour) I thought rehearsals would be a breeze! However, learning the show with completely different people was such a challenge. I was questioning everything I knew from spacing to choreography. But it’s just because it’s a different space with different bodies. Each company has a unique way they execute the show, a common flow and breath, but all have the same goal. Eventually I found my flow this company, and (hopefully) I’m doing the right steps again.
5. What are you looking forward to most about your experience on Broadway?
This is my first time living in the big city! I’m already so in love. New York is the perfect place to develop every part of yourself. While here, I’ll continue to take any dance/vocal/acting lesson I can by day, and continue to learn more and discover things about the show by night.
