Customer Reviews

A godsend!

I’m about to enter my final semester in college—I’m getting my BFA in musical theatre and this podcast has helped me to feel more in control of this next chapter of my life.

Shadowluminaire ,

Love it

I’m new to acting and this podcast is a great resource to understand how to be a professional actor. This podcast is super handy for newbies and professionals to learn more about the industry.

Support through knowledge

This show has been really helpful in filling in the gaps of my knowledge of the professional theater. I am still working through my process of figuring out the balance of auditioning and supporting myself, and my lack of details about how NY auditions work has been holding me down. It feels like Maggie has my back, and gives non-judgmental advice on how to succeed. Her confidence brings confidence to the listener. Going into this new decade, this podcast is helping me focus on the specifics I need to get to the life I want.
