#36 - Lena Hall

E-Ticket to Broadway

If ever there was an episode about a deep love for both Wall-E & Maximus (the horse from "Tangled"), this is the one. Join Tony Award-winner Lena Hall ("Hedwig and the Angry Inch," "Kinky Boots," TNT's "Snowpiercer") as she reminisces about her love of Disney growing up--from going to Disneyland as a kid and seeing Captain EO and "It's a Small World," to how as a child she would sing along to "The Little Mermaid" and the "big one" that is "Beauty and the Beast" (and wanting to be Snow White so badly). This rocker credits getting her singing chops to signing along to Disney movies as from "Kiss the Girl" to "Aladdin" and the entire soundtrack of "The Lion King," and loving the music and ballet sequences from "Fantasia." Lena recalls her first time going to Walt Disney World while on tour with "Cats," and also shares a very sordid story from a trip to Pleasure Island while on tour with "Annie Get Your Gun." Besides her love of Ursula, Sebastian, Timon & Pumbaa, and "The Nightmare Before Christmas," Lena digs in and talks about her love of the flawed Disney characters and just how complex they are. She shares a very romantic story about watching "Wall-E "with her husband (then boyfriend) in a little cabin together, as well as her time in "Tarzan" on Broadway and the challenges she faced during that part of her life--and finding her purpose. Play along with "The Origin of Love for Disney" game in which Lena is quizzed on how the Broadway Hedwigs relate to Disney, and listen as she slays the game "Rock Stars do Disney." This episode also includes an interview with E-Ticket Patreon member Michael!

The Theatre Podcast with Alan Seales

From the non-stop nature of a Broadway performer's life, to the slower pace of TV, this Tony Award winner opens up about her struggles as an artist during the pandemic, and the importance of stopping to “look back and realize how far you have come” on your way to your goals. Lena Hall is a Tony Award winner and Grammy nominee known for her phenomenal performance of Yitzhak in the 2014 Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Lena can now be seen as Miss Audrey in Snowpiercer on TNT.Currently in Canada quarantining and filming season 3 of Snowpiercer, Lena opens up about how her “light” shooting schedule leads to nostalgia for the workhorse nature of being a Broadway performer. She speaks candidly about the impact the pandemic has had on her creative mind and vision; and shares how she has struggled with the stress, the anxiety, and the not knowing, while taking solace in the knowledge that “we are all in the same boat”.
