In the world of theatrical performers, Ramin Karimloo is known as one of the most formidable talents in the industry. Heralded for his portrayal of leading roles Jean Valjean in Les Mirerables and the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera, Karimloo is a musical force unlike any other. In fact, it was his unbridaled reputation that led to his performance in the recent Oscar tribute to Les Misérables.
Iranian-born, Canadian actor, singer Ramin is recognized as the favorite leading man to perform in London's West End Musical Theatre by whatsonstage.com. Ramin has played starring roles in both of the West End's longest running musicals; Jean Valjean, Enjolras and Marius in Les Misérables and the Phantom and Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera.
Ramin was hand picked by Andrew Lloyd Webber to portray the lead role in his sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies. He originated the role of Phantom in this sequel, a role that won him the prestigious Theatregoer’s Choice Award and the Broadwayworld.com award for Best Actor in a musical.
In 2011, Ramin played The Phantom for three performances alongside Love Never Dies co-star Sierra Boggess in the unique “25th Anniversary Production of The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall”, that was streamed live to cinemas across the world, providing an even larger stage for this theatrical superstar’s talent. Additionally, he performed the title song, Music Of The Night, during the Broadway 25th Anniversary of Phantom of the Opera.
Ramin also played the role of Enjolras in the “25th Anniversary Concert of Les Misérables” at The O2 Arena in London where it has been one of the most widely viewed shows in history.
His other musical theatre credits include Murder Ballad, Miss Saigon, Zorro - The Musical, Pirates of Penzance, Simply Barbara, Grease, Anything Goes and Bye Bye Birdie.
Originally on track to become a cardio thoracic surgeon our season 3 finale guest, Johanna Moise, is not throwing away her shot.

She was born and raised in a 9 person household in Miramar, Florida, and made the giant leap on her own to New York City not too long ago. Her story is great. Thanks for hanging with us!

Rach was born and raised in a military town on the east coast of North Carolina. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Dramatic Art and Vocal Performance from UNC Chapel Hill, where her professional career began with PlayMakers Repertory Company. After graduation she made the move to New York, and in May of 2019 graduated with her Master of Fine Arts in Acting degree from The New School for Drama. Since graduating she has had the chance to perform Off-Broadway in shows like 'Rabbit Hole', and with companies like Engarde Arts. She has also worked with many talented filmmakers in shorts and features. Rachael is also a writer, and it is one of the great loves of her life. She now has her first comedy pilot, 'Between Us,' in the works with a talented cast including a grammy nominated artist, and WKRP in Cincinnati's Tim Reid. Her pilot was just selected as a finalist in the Vancouver International Women In Film Festival taking place this March. Moving to this city six years ago was the best decision she's ever made. Since graduating with her masters, she has picked up a bomb-ass team, and found her niche writing whatever the fu*k she wants. She has surrounded herself with an amazing tribe of creators, and gets to play pretend for a living. Turns out, she was made to be a New Yorker, but will always keep a little bit of that southern accent. What it all boils down to: "I want to do good plays and drink good wine with good people."

An Iranian/American actor, writer and activist, Pooya was born and raised in Tehran, Iran, based in New York City.

Andrew Kober is (still) an American actor who has worked in many musicals, most recently in the phenomenal Beetlejuice, the Musical (check out season 1 for my first interview with Andrew). After closing Beetlejuice, he spends most of his time at home wondering how Rob McClure commutes from Philadelphia to NYC to perform all the time, or playing with his new drone that his wife bought him. He's got an incredible new project he's working on that is not The Notebook (don't worry, he never tells us because he signed a NDA), and is ultimately afraid of how high up I live in the cast housing provided by the Funny Girl production.
