You Have To Go To Los Angeles To Get To New York


mapFor film & television, you go to Los Angeles. For theatre, you go to New York. That’s always been the perception for actors.

But in a post in today’s Backstage Blogs, there is an interesting quote from actor Jordan Lage, a 25-year veteran of New York theatre:

You cannot open a straight play on Broadway without some kind of a name attached…You gotta go out to L.A. and become a TV or movie star to have a career in the theatre.

Ironic, since many actors believe it best to train in New York before embarking on a career in Los Angeles.

  3. I partially agree. LA is the place to be in fact for acting and the ent bus though becoming an established actor isn’t necessary. LA has the reputation because it’s the truth. People come to LA to get from point A to B by meeting people. Network your ass off and you’ll find what you’re looking for.

  4. Some say LA is a place of bad energy and workaholics. Others may disagree. I think LA is what you make of it.

  7. Usually I don’t learn article on blogs, but I wish to say that
    this write-up very pressured me to try and do so! Your writing style has been surprised
    me. Thanks, quite great post.

  8. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless imagine if you
    added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could certainly
    be one of the best in its niche. Very good blog!
