It was a bright Saturday morning in London, and I managed to speak to musical theatre performer and actor Rachel Lea-Gray on the phone. She is currently playing the lead role of Carmen in Phil Willmott‘s new production, Carmen 1808. The production’s run has already begun at the Union Theatre. I got to talk to Rachel about what she finds fascinating about Carmen, what challenges she faces performing her role, her love for Disney’s The Little Mermaid and what steaming your voice means. Much more below.

☆☆☆☆ @arcolatheatre #OneginandTatiana seizes woeful and despairing music without making others feel the need to leave the room. One walks away with a pleasure-pain relationship with the production, yet the musical pleasure wins the most. #Grimeborn ♥️https://t.co/P8i5yJ0uFX pic.twitter.com/KOkCpIeIow— Trendfem.com🌸🎶 (@MaryGNguyen) August 14, 2018
