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