In my years at University, I learned everything that I needed to know with regard to performing and honing my skills in the world of singing, dancing, and acting. But I never really had a sense of what the “real world” of theatre was like, because one can never understand the real world of any profession until he immerses himself in it, and that’s exactly what I did all of those years ago. I’ve seen changes in the industry over the last decade-and-a-half that completely contradict what was once industry standard, yet those very changes have become the norm.

I have been steadily working as an actor, singer, dancer, waiter, and bartender for almost fifteen years while living in New York City. I’ve most certainly had my struggles, and I know how hard it can be to make ends meet. N.Y. LIBRETTO is something to be turned to for inspiration in the midst of those troubling times.

N.Y. LIBRETTO is intended for actors, age sixteen and up. For anyone with the intention of moving to New York City with the dream of pursuing a career in the theatre industry, N.Y. LIBRETTO can be an invaluable asset. It would be beneficial to professors and students alike at Performance Arts high schools, colleges, and universities with theatre departments.
