The Juilliard School has one of the most prestigious acting schools in the United States, with a roster of alumni that includes Patti LuPone, William Hurt, Robin Williams, Christine Baranski, Kevin Spacey and Jessica Chastain.
Not to mention recent graduates like Alex Sharp and Phillipa Soo. And if their names don’t yet ring as familiar, soon enough they will.
Mr. Sharp is a 2014 graduate now finishing a yearlong run in “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.” In June he won the Tony Award for best actor, playing an autistic teenager.
