I hope to learn what it took for the people we will meet to get to the point they are on broadway.
I also would like find out how difficult it is to get a play that you write onto a theater.
If possible, I would like to see the tech side of the theater, such as the boards, lights, flys, etc...

A really want to see the professional lights at the play.
I want to see what it is like for people having lighting as a career.
And I want to see what goes into a broadway play.

I would like to learn about the struggles these people went through in order to "Make it in New York."
I would like to ask the directors/actors/producers how it feels to live their dreams and find out what advice they have for student thespians who would like to do the same one day.

I hope that we will explore the professional careers of some of the artists that we will meet and understand how they came to their current careers.
Did they specifically attend a acting/producing school?
Did they persue the dream of working in performing arts from an early age or was it a spontaneous decision?
