My Review: 

Waiting in the Wings: How to Launch Your Performing Career on Broadway and Beyond will take those aspiring performers to the acting, dancing, and singling world. The book is broken down into seventeen chapters with many helpful tips, opinion, and what to expect. There are sections of auditions, agents, directors, lessons, what to do’s and what not to do’s, and how to protect from being part of a scammer’s web. I liked how the authors were able to show some good, as well as, the ugly of making it to Broadway. There were some words of encouragement for those who are getting discouraged and the authors tell they were able to deal with the difficulties in the pursuit of their own performing aspirations. Though the book is geared toward those seeking a career in performing. With the inclusion of the highs and lows in pursuing this path, can be relevant for other career paths, as well. 

I am giving Waiting in the Wings: How to Launch Your Performing Career on Broadway and Beyond three and a half stars. Readers who are seeking advice or tips on what to expect of following their own acting ad Broadway dreams would benefit reading this book. I thought it was a good book to read on not giving up. 

I received a paperback copy of Waiting in the Wings: How to Launch Your Performing Career on Broadway and Beyond from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
