This week, we welcome Hamilton’s Amanda Braun to the Main Stem and learn about her journey toward making her Broadway debut.
1. What is your name and hometown?
My name is Amanda Braun and I’m from Warren, New Jersey
2. What is your role/track in your Broadway debut?
I am a Universal Swing.
3. How did you find out you had booked the part?
I originally booked the original company of the Angelica Tour in November 2016! I had gone in for my fifth callback and my agents told me the next day that I was on hold until I finally got the call the day before Thanksgiving that I was going to be launching the First National Tour. After almost two years of being with the Angelica Tour I went back to New York City. Seven months later I was offered this new and exciting position!
4. What's been the most surprising thing about preparing to perform the show?
There are many small details in Hamilton that make the show so captivating. It is truly incredible that I get to learn every female track and be able to discover those details.
5. What are you looking forward to most about your experience on Broadway?
I am hoping I get the chance to make a Broadway debut with this dream show! Being a Universal Swing means that my home base is the New York company but I can be sent to any of the productions in the country at any given time. This is such an awesome opportunity to get to know everyone who is a part of the HamFam and I am looking forward to telling this story with so many wonderful people around the world!
