I'm just curious to know how many WORKING NYC actors we have here....let's define "working" as anyone who has worked for money in the past year or who is set to work for money within this year....and who's equity and non-equity...

as for me, i'm a working non-eq actor.....(dodges tomatoes)

I am a non-working equity actor who just MIGHT make some money later this year - but I'm not concentrating on the business at the moment.
"I don't really get the ending,all i can go with is when after several months,Judith saw Pat sang,and later she kissed him on the toilet,after that the story back to where Pat went down from the stage after he'd sung,and he went to the italian lady.I just don't get it,what Judith exatcly meant when he kissed Pat that she had seen,and did Pat end up together with The Italian Lady?Please help me,thank u very much!" Quote from someone on IMDB in reference to a movie he/she didn't understand. Such grammar!

I'm a non-Equity actor in Chicago who has chosen to work a desk job for the last two years instead of performing. But I'm considering auditioning again soon.

I am a working (sort of) actor in the Poconos. I've only been paid for one thing (the movie "Wet Hot American Summer"), but I have been in over 20 professional, but non-paying, plays/musicals.

It's luck, kid.

Well, it was mostly for me, anyway...there are tons of people out there who have so much talent- but they don't get cast. Sucks, doesn't it? I have talent, and luck has failed me plenty of times. Thank God it's taking a turn for the better...

Non-working Equity, doing other things right now but advising on a regional theater group level. And STILL NOT MAKING MONEY

broadwayguy2 and I are both slutty chorus boys.

Although, I had a couple of regional leads this last year, thanks be to God our Mother.
