Hey everybody, Jen Hatmaker here, your host of the For The Love podcast. Welcome to the show, you guys. Right now, today, we are wrapping up our series For the Love of Broadway, and I’m devastated. I am so sad to see it go. I wanted it to go on and on forever, it was so delightful. I’ve just adored every second of it. It’s been jam packed with the best of the best, and today is absolutely no exception. I’ve loved talking to these performers and actors about their live theater life, and what it is like in tandem with the audience, and what it was like for them to get there, and the path and the work that it took to achieve this high level of mastery at their craft. You guys, you are so going to be tickled today.
I had to have in this series at least one really up-and-coming actor, actors and singers. I wanted to reach the younger section. You guys, who we have today is the one and only Vince Ermita. You guys are going to die. He is the cutest. This is the cutest interview because Vince was cast as Young Simba in The Lion King. That means a humongous role, Young Simba. Lion King is one of the longest running Broadway productions across the world. This is a huge, huge deal for him. I was so thrilled to talk with him, he’s so darling. He’s 11. He is 11 and he is all sunshine. He is all sparkle and all joy and the cutest. I don’t think I stopped smiling for half of one second of this entire interview. He tells us what it’s like to be cast as Young Simba, what it’s like to do this many shows. He talks about the costuming and the wigs in no uncertain terms, and where he’d like to go. You’re going to fall madly in love. I’m so happy to share with you my conversation with the wonderful Vince Vince Ermita.
