And I'm thrilled to announce our 37th featured playwright for the  Book Club for Actors. Two meetings will be held in April so there's plenty of reading time ahead. Join us for great conversation over yummy diner food. See details below.

Wishing you a month of abundant creativity!

What Actors Ought to Know About Acting Training
by Rhonda S. Musak
In the world of acting things happen quickly. In one moment you're preparing for several auditions and in the next you've been handed a script with the expectation that in a very short amount of time you will be ready to hit the stage or the camera 100% prepared and ready to go.

It's the moment we all live for as actors, but sometimes when it comes it can seem daunting. Where oh where to begin becomes the question, especially once you've realized that the rehearsal you'll be given is inadequate to what the role requires...

You've studied with me, you've booked the job -- now share the FAB news!
