André Ward: Episode 19 – TAKE IT FROM THE TOP

TIFTT - Episode 19 - André Ward Have you ever met someone who has so much luminosity that when they walk into a room, they don’t just light it up, they fill it with joy? My guest today, veteran Broadway actor André Ward, is one of those people. André’s megawatt smile, his infectious laugh, and his knack for telling a juicy story (not to mention his singing and dancing) have put him on every casting directors “must have” list for nearly two decades. The stage, and the world, gets a whole lot brighter when André shows up. Each podcast, hosted by composer Dana P. Rowe, is comprised of conversations with guests from all facets of the creative arts, including producers, directors, choreographers, actors, artists and more. TAKE IT FROM THE TOP aims to inspire listeners to be more courageous in their lives; to awaken new thinking about life’s possibilities; and to motivate action. http://www.tiftt.com
