What We Do - Working in the Theatre

Bo Metzler Price: $15.95

An insider's behind-the-scenes look at the who, what, and where of professional theatre in New York

It is a theatre resource book for high school or college theatre students who are determined to have a professional career, as well as an easy-to-understand explanation of the theatre life for non-theatre friends and family of theatre people

Bo Metzler has been “doing” theatre for 40 years including 25 years on Broadway as either an actor, stage manager, dresser, carpenter, electrician or prop man on such shows as "Cats," "Phantom of the Opera," "Les Miserables" and "Lion King"

“Such a breadth of experience is unusual and Mr Metzler decided to set his knowledge down in a book. The result is a sort of layman's guide to how things get done in the professional theatre. Metzler writes in a pleasant, conversational style and What We Do is a quick and entertaining read. He often uses examples from his own career to illustrate points, and conveys a real sense of what it means to survive in professional theatre if you don't become a headliner

What We Do will also be useful for high school and college students considering theatre as a career...” ~
