Show Notes

From Medical School to Drama School to Harvard Law School!

This week's guest is Michael Ahomka-Lindsay who recently starred as Emmett in the sell-out London revival of Legally Blonde directed by Lucy Moss at the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre.

After leaving medical school, Michael pursued a career in performing and secured the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation scholarship to train at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. After graduating, Michael starred as Benny in Luke Sheppard's production of Rent at the Hope Mill Theatre. He then went on tour as Maugrim in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe before landing the role of Emmett in Legally Blonde.

Michael can soon be seen in new musical To The Streets! in Birmingham which runs 19th - 28th August.

In this episode, Michael discusses leaving medical school behind for theatre, life as an actor-musician, all things Legally Blonde and lots more!
