Podcast: Edward Seckerson Meets... Christine Allado

Wednesday, June 5, 2024

Christine Allado speaks to Edward Seckerson about her career so far, and looking ahead to Carousel

For this Musicals Magazine Podcast, Edward Seckerson meets Christine Allado, fresh from lending her shining soprano to the Old Friends celebrating Stephen Sondheim at London’s Gielgud Theatre. Some may remember her opposite Rob Houchen in the TV documentary The Making of a Classic, chronicling the genesis of West Side Story, but onstage the Filipino actress is best known as Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds – and sometimes Eliza – in Hamilton, and Tzipporah in Prince of Egypt. She’s about to give her Julie Jordan in a concert staging of one of the greatest musicals ever written – Carousel.
