With full company rehearsals beginning today for the Broadway production of Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, we welcome debut ensemblist Holli’ Conway to Broadway and learn about her journey to the Great White Way.
1. What is your name and hometown?
My name is Holli’ Conway and I’m from Louisiana.
2. What is your role/track in your Broadway debut?
Ikette and Ensemble in Tina: The Tina Turner Musical.
3. How did you find out you had booked the part?
I was Miss Louisiana at the time, doing a face mask and getting ready for an appearance. My Agent Lauren @blocnyc called a little before they opened (which gave me a mini panic attack lol). She put me on speaker with the Bloc team in the room, played "The Best", and told me that I was "simply the best" because I was going to be on Broadway! I then proceeded to intensely cry through my face mask.
4. What are you looking forward to most about your experience on Broadway?
The challenge -- which is ironically my biggest fear lol. One of my favorite sayings is "It's only impossible until it's done". Sometimes we don't realize what we're capable of until someone or something pushes you to it. I think this experience and this story is going to challenge me until I'm the performer that I didn't know I could be.
