Acting may be fun and rewarding work, but it requires a lot of the actor; preparation, audition, rehearsal, and more.
Theatre professionals Jackie Apodaca and Michael Kostroff shared an advice column for working or nearly-working actors for a decade in "Backstage," a trade paper. They compiled some of their best work in the book Answers from "The Working Actor": Two Backstage Columnists Share Ten Years of Advice.
Jackie Apodaca is a professor in the theatre department at Southern Oregon University. Michael Kostroff is an actor and a teacher as well.
