How can you have a family when you work in theatre arts? I am nearly thirty. Plenty of my peers have children, so I could, too, except I work in the arts. The choice to have children or not is made for a myriad of reasons, but the time and financial responsibility isn’t always manageable in theatre. It’s just not that simple in this line of work. There are so many factors to consider.
I did a crazy thing last week. I released my debut album, The Heart is the Hunter. I am an actor, mostly stage. Much classical. And I, an actor, have now birthed into the world a — what I like to call — indie folk pop record…we each have many voices. We may go through training of some kind to hone one or more of them, but ultimately what makes us good artists is our multitude of interests, desires, voices we have to share.
