You really got this review SO right! They have done an amazing job with it and captured the essence of the passion performers have when they choose a career in the theatre. I "trod the boards" for 14 years - most of them in NY and made so many personal sacrifices to act. It's a hard life. So amazing when you are working, but hard when you are waiting to hear from your agent or waiting AGAIN on the unemployment line. You are treated as a product with no feelings at times and I was truly told I "wasn't pretty enough" - even called a "troll" in a review once. Hahahaha! I grew tired of playing so young (still playing 18 at 30 on tv) and tired of the lifestyle and moved back down south. I admire my contemporaries who stuck it out and have won tonys or just continued working, but I'm glad I'm here with my sweet family now.
Thanks for writing this so well.
