As you probably know, this year we've teamed up with TheaterMania, our New York sister site, to bring you a brand new video series under the banner of West End vs Broadway.

In each edition, we've paired up two talented actors who are playing the same role in the same production on either side of the Atlantic and given them the opportunity to pose three burning questions (of their own choosing) to their counterparts.

If you haven't had the chance to watch musical theatre's top international interactions yet, then why not take in the series so far?

Disclaimer: All actors were representing their respective productions at the time of recording.

We know you can't "Say No to This" one! It's the West End and Broadway's Alexander Hamiltons – Karl Queensborough and Miguel Cervantes:

Next up, it's two bonafide angels of music! Making musical theatre history are London's Lucy St Louis and New York's Emilie Kouatchou, who are the first black performers to take on the role of Christine Daaé in Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera:

"We Don't Need Another Hero"... We need two leading ladies at the top of their game talking all things Tina – The Tina Turner Musical! Here's the West End's Aisha Jawando and Broadway's Nkeki Obi-Melekwe:

Don't Lose Ur Heads, queedom! That's right, Six fans! We spilled the royal-tea with two Anne Boleyns, pairing up London's Amanda Lindgren with original Broadway cast member Andrea Macasaet:

Olivier and WhatsOnStage Award winner Sam Tutty and Broadway's Zachary Noah Piser would be found for this Dear Evan Hansen-themed edition of West End vs Broadway. We hope you enjoy it! Sincerely, Us.

This is your captain speaking: It's time for Tony-nominated, original Broadway cast member Jenn Colella and the West End's Alice Fearn to buckle up and talk all things Come From Away:

"The Circle of Life" continues as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Disney's The Lion King with two long-serving Mufasas: London's Shaun Escoffery and New York's L Steven Taylor!

This "Larger Than Life" edition of West End vs Broadway brings together two William Shakespeares from the world of & Juliet. Enter: London's Oliver Tompsett and New York's Stark Sands!
