Actress in the rough.
The profession of acting has been maligned throughout the ages. The actor has been considered foolish not only when he was clowning on stage but even for having chosen to be an actor - a vagabond or hobo strolling through life without importance or worth. He has been denied burial ground and has been accused of prostitution and other varieties of immorality, egomania, vanity, ruthlessness, hypocrisy, toadyism, to name a few. Even when his gifts were recognized as extraordinary, his talent was looked upon as an accident of nature. When the public turned him into an idol, they treated him like some rare species behind bars. They poked into his private life and examined every detail of it with the audacity and curiosity they might have exhibited while watching monkeys at their most intimate moments in the zoo.
I’m currently in the process of writing my own web series, as well as collaborating on a web series that my writer friend wrote based on what he thinks my life is actually like. I’m really excited about both projects.
This article has a few quick tips about how to get those series seen when they are up and running.
I’m also writing three musicals with my super talented song-writing friend. It’s been a busy year!

Most theaters in NYC offer some sort of discount ticket program.
TKTS: Can get tickets (usually a good seat) for up to 50% off. I believe you have to go on-the-day, and wait in a (usually) long line. 50% off could still mean a $150 ticket.
Student Rush: By getting up early and waiting in a long line at unGodly hours, you may score a really good ticket for $20-$40. Usually, you need to have a valid student ID for this, but sometimes, theaters just offer “rush” tickets.
Lottery: By showing up about 2-2.5 hours before a performance, you can enter a Lottery to win premium seats at the theater. Usually, Lotteries are INSANE, and there are 100s of people in the mix.
Discount Ticket Programs: HipTix, and StudentRush.org are two that I know of. HipTix, I believe you must be under 35 years old, and StudentRush.org anyone can join, but the shows are usually lesser known off-Broadway shows. Which, sometimes are amazing!

I’m personally loving this new doctor. And Deep Breath was an entertaining episode.
Doctor #12 (or 13 or 14 depending on how you look at it) is a bit calmer than his two predecessors. He’s also more cross (with eyebrows to match).
IMHO, he’s not as funny as the others, but it’s because he’s less cartoonish than the others, preferring to ground his comedy rather than animate it.
However, his supporting cast was there to provide comic relief at integral parts when the drama was heavy.
Who else cried when the T-Rex died?!?
Favorite quote of the show: “I have cross eyebrows.”
Can’t wait to see what’s in store for tonight’s episode!
Always good to get a look inside your agent/manager’s head. Have a conversation with him/her, and make sure you know what you need to be doing to pull your weight in the relationship.
