Worth your time. Without a doubt.

Y’all. Go listen to this podcast if y’all are in the audition game! Yes, if you’re of a certain age he’s that Justin. American Idol Justin. But he’s also tread the boards in wicked (in the tight white pants) , in transit (Acapella realness THE ENTIRE SHOW) and many more shows - though those two stick out cause I was privileged enough to sit in the audience for and seen his talent first hand!

Having sat on the other side of the table on projects I’ve helped write what he - and his guests - are giving you is good solid advice any aspiring actor should take to heart.

Go! Now! Listen! And bring his tips into the room with you at your next audition!
