We dive into the land of acting methods with Jacob from Birmingham, Alabama. We chat the grad school bubble, his take on agents and managers, the injustice of the acting world, facebook marketing, and sense memory. We also go in depth about his upcoming solo show where he sheds light on his experience with PTSD.
We chat with Andrea who currently stars on WGN’s Underground! She guides us through her path as an actress from Alabama to Louisiana to LA to Montreal and next: Atlanta. She describes the audition process for Underground, the importance of perfecting the self tape, having confidence from experience, and sometimes having to choose your family over career.
We sit down with creator of Theasy.com, Molly, and chat about how the theatre review site got its start and what its attitude is towards both commercial and indie theatre. We also delve into Dramaturgy, how to get a directing network, and what it is to have a non theatre-y partner.
