Hey, friends, welcome back to The Big Talk podcast. I’m your host, Tricia Brouk — founder of The Big Talk Academy, award-winning director, producer, and author. This is episode 591.


Today, it is my honor to share a big talk from my 2023 Speaker Salon Showcase. This talk, called “Creating A Sustainable Career In Theatre,” was given by an amazing speaker and my dear friend, Antuan Magic Raimone. 


Antuan is an NYC-based author of “Becoming Magic,” TEDx Speaker, Soldier of Love®, and 25-year veteran Actor who was most recently the first male Universal Swing for the five U.S. productions of “Hamilton” for six years. He was also the first Vacation Swing for “In the Heights” for four years. He educates and empowers others to achieve successful career development, both onstage and off.


In his talk, he explores:


  • What it means to be a swing in a theatre production

  • The intense mental and physical preparation involved in being a Universal Swing for Hamilton

  • His journey and the importance of adaptability, quick learning, and hard work along the way

  • The need for knowledge and training for sustainability in the theater industry
