DOER OF ALL, MASTER OF NONE

 

You need to ask yourself what is it that you desire, want to accomplish or do as a performing artist. It could be a job (a role on Broadway), it could be a creative endeavor (creating a solo show, recording a CD of favorite songs), it could even be a collaboration of some sort (produce a show and cast my friends) etc. We call these things goals.

 

Now, think of three goals and write them down. Lets say you choose one that seems tangible now, one that seems like it potentially could happen in the next few years and one of which dreams are made.

 

Now look at these goals. How specific are you? Not sure?...

 

Well, take note….SPECIFICITY IS KEY!

I also spent every summer of my youth and college years doing summer stock at a place called Starlight/SDCLO also in San Diego.

BB: Did you always want to be a playwright? What made you decide to become one?

 

NG: I came to the theatre relatively late.  In high school, I took a creative drama class on a whim, and re-discovered a love for stories and acting.  I applied to some acting programs for undergrad, and they all rightly rejected me.  In the rigorous and hands-on BA Drama program at Ithaca College, I realized I was always telling stories in my head.  After the performance of the first full-length play I ever wrote, a stranger in the audience came up to me, crying, and said "How did you know?" ...
