    4.5 Stars. There was a time, I confess, when I desperately wanted to be on a sitcom. Okay, it was the '80s when there was no shortage of family sitcoms. Those kids on Growing Pains and Family Ties always looked like they were having so much fun! I reasoned that I was a kid who liked...

    As the parent of an actor attending his junior year of a university theatre program, I have questions. So many questions... Actually ?had?, as Jenna just answered nearly all of them over the past two days. Jenna covered much of what Joe can anticipate after graduation. I just order...

    This book is basically an actors textbook. Please, please, please know this. It was perfect for me cause, hey, I'm an actor. Jenna has been giving out amazing information like this for years, via blog posts and podcasts, and I have been waiting for her to publish it. But if you are...

    Being an actor is not something I ever wanted to pursue, so I am not the intended audience for this book, but I still loved learning about the behind-the-scenes details of trying to make a profession out of acting. ...

    This is a great book. Fischer's tone is consistently informative, humorous, and down to earth. The book offers encouragement, warnings against scams, advice about specific websites and agencies to use, and a large grain of salt - she constantly references friends of hers who have still...
