I have often wondered what the theatre life was like, and this book did not disappoint. In my youth, I thought it would be cool to be an actress yet realized I didn’t have access to that world. Being from the Midwest, it was something I would have to leave to do (or so my child’s mind thought). I digress ...
I enjoyed this book and think it would be an excellent resource for those wanting to take their career to a new level. Told with the honestly that only a true “insider” could provide, this book provides readers with the realities this business while preparing them for a long-term career through practical advice. The stories told are genuine, honest, and impactful.
