American Theatre Wing's SpringboardNYC Class of 2008
I am incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to attend the Tony Awards rehearsal this year thanks to my weeks with ATW's SpringboardNYC. What an experience! We literally sat two feet away from the stage (in what would have regularly been the pit) and saw performances from all of the nominated shows, the original cast of RENT, The Lion King and of course some of the biggest figures in today's NY theatre scene. Over the course of the two weeks, I've had the chance to think a lot about my career choices and how I should (and need) to go about making correct decisions to support an artistic career. I'm incredibly thankful to everyone at the Wing who provided me with this exciting opportunity and look forward to keeping in touch with the SB class of 2008 and hearing about the fantastic work that they're doing.
