Enjoy an Exclusive interview with Adam and Alex Belfield across the pond….
Adam’s big break came with the opportunity to play “Marius” in the national tour of Les Miserables. This job led to him being cast in the Broadway revival and his subsequent Broadway debut.
Within the short 14 months that the show played the Broadhurst Theater, he had the benefit of working with many Broadway veterans including Lea Salonga, Judy Kuhn, Gary Beach, Daphne-Rubin Vega, Norm Lewis, Ann Harada, Aaron Lazar, among many others.
Since Les Miserables, he has journeyed from the islands of Mamma Mia! to the African pridelands of The Lion King. He’s gone from the tropics of Once On This Island to the Arabian deserts of Aladdin.
He credits his Filipino mother and Jewish father not just for his mixed ethnicity which has allowed him to play such varied roles, but more importantly for their whole-hearted encouragement to pursue a life in the arts.
Adam, his wife Kelly, and their sons Jack and Alex now make their home in NYC.
After touring for two years with the first national tour of Disney’s Mary Poppins as a dance captain and swing, Kelly happily joined the Broadway company and stayed with it until its closing in 2013.
