Love hearing how so many artists experience the same joys, doubts and fears.
The stars are human!
This is a beautiful and necessary series for both the aspiring AND the working actor. Advice and experience from some of theatre's greats, as they share their true feelings of frustration, confusion, gratitude, and joy, in an industry that can be fickle and also entirely inspiring. I'm looking forward to hearing more of these podcasts as they come out, and eagerly sharing them with my vocal coaching clients!
Podcast is putting something great into the world.
Too often do we focus on the negative. We define ourselves by our success. This breeds fear, negativity, and hinders creativity. This podcast busts the myth that successful artists do not struggle with what aspiring artists do. It helps us focus on self validation and opening ourselves up to our best work. Enjoy!!!
