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.

☆☆☆☆☆ Any opportunity to see #LauraLinney live should be embraced fast. If not, then at least try and read one, or all, of Strout's books. I'm currently reading Anything Is Possible (2018) & I've having difficulty putting it down. @_bridgetheatre trendfem.com/2018/06/my-nam…
