You are fantastic Julie! I would kill to get to NYC to see you in something... I don't care if you were singing in Times Square with the Naked Cowboy, lol...... I can be there in just over 2 hours!

Do you prefer to do film work? I'm just wondering if your heart is more for film than theater right now and if that is why you stay in LA? I would imagine that those oprotunities are easier to come by there than in NY. However, if your heart with theater, why have you chosen to not relocate to NY at this point?

I'm sorry if my wordign is bad and if I sound rude, I really don't mean it that way. I'm just curious... If it's too personal or you just don't want to discuss it, please know that I wouldn't be offend if you don't answer or delete any evidence of my asking.

All I'm sayign is that people are stupid not to cast you! You are fantastic!!!

When I moved to LA about 11 years ago, it was because I was burnt out in NYC and wanted a change. I love television (the scripted kind, not the reality TV) and had my heart set on landing a role in a sitcom. In the meantime, I bought a house (something I never could have done in Manhattan), made and marketed a product, made a documentary, and have some terrific friends. Not to mention the fact that my brother lives 10 blocks away from me.

Of course I would love to do theatre in New York but I can no longer afford to live there and I would not be able to earn a living as a Studio Teacher there, since the job only exists in the state of California. I would be miserable and poor (something much easier to deal with in your 20's), unless I was fortunate enough to land a job in a musical - and we all know those odds.

So I'm perfectly happy where I am and if I'm meant to do theatre in New York, I'm sure the opportunity will come along. Thanks for your vote of confidence, though.

Julie
