Actor Isaac Cole Powell took theater fans on a set tour of “Once on This Island,” revealing behind-the-scenes secrets from his tenure on the Tony Award-winning smash hit.
The actor, who landed the part of Daniel in the revival production just a few months after graduating from college, said he was awe-struck when he realized he would be performing on Broadway.
“I just couldn’t believe it,” he said. “My whole body went hot and numb. I walked around like a zombie for like three days, just thinking ‘what is the next year of my life going to look like?'”
He said the experience so far has surpassed his expectations and continues to be “surreal.”
Also in the episode, Powell opened up to host Garen Scribner about his relationship with fellow Broadway star Wesley Taylor, gave a backstage tour of his dressing room and discussed dancing on the sandy set. Watch the full episode below and follow Broadway Sandwich on Facebook Watch.
