New York or Bust: Interview with Performer Emily Whitley


In this episode, we were so excited to chat with Emily Whitley, who made the move to New York to pursue her Broadway dreams! Before her move, you may have seen her in local productions like “Head over Heels” at Actor’s Express.

You’ll get to hear all the nitty-gritty details about finding a place to live, earning income while still saving time to audition and train, as well as embarking on the search for an agent.

Emily’s determination, persistence, and resiliency during this process is something we know will inspire other Broadway hopefuls. We are grateful to Emily, who has agreed to keep up posted on her New York happenings so we can follow her journey. We know great things are in store!
