But we’re dying here!” She sends laughter through the line that is so infectious I almost think she could be a giddy teenager. Not having air-conditioning in LA is a blip on the radar of risks and adventures Sarah has taken. Despite he
On this episode of "Hone Your Craft" we go backstage at the incredible revival of Spring Awakening. Check out our beautiful interview with Katie Boeck, the talented star of the Tony-Winning musical. We talk about the use of sign language in the show, writing music and her best advice for aspiring performers (there's also a delicious surprise). You won't want to miss what she has to say! A big thank you to KGD Films and the Brook Atkinson Theatre!

Dominic began his professional training at the South Coast Repertory theater and hasn't stopped since then. He has been seen in the films Rampart (with Woody Harrelson), and Peep World (with Sar
Wisdom is a bewitching thing. In the entertainment industry it tends to come in blips overtime with multitudes of experience or expensive training programs. Most of the time you find yourself drowining in a excess of your own thoughts. Luckily, John Swanbeck is around to provide an easier route for aspiring artists. The veteran Director (The Big Kahuna), Producer (owner of BlueSwanFilms) and Writer (to name a few of the impressive hats he dawns) has universally shared acce
On Deck with Lucy highlights the three "T's" of New York - Talent, Trends & Taste. They certainly found their "talent" when they crashed one of RPP's Personable workshops on September 1st in NYC. Check out the beautiful feature including an interview with our CEO, Robert Peterpaul and a shoutout to a pretty cool blog ;).
