Daycare Challenges for Broadway Actors

I just wanted to share with you this very interesting article from the NY Times about daycare issues for Broadway actors. It's an interview with actress and mom, Sharon Wheatley who has performed in Cats, Les Mis and Phantom of the Opera. St. Malachy's Church (The Actors' Chapel) in cooperation with Actors Equity and The Actors Fund is exploring the possibility of a daycare center for these actors. A qoute from Fr. Baker said “We see it as a God-given gift these people have, they shouldn’t have to give up their family.” I totally agree! To read about it please click here.

I read Sharon Wheatley's book a couple years ago, it's a memoir called Til the Fat Girl Sings. I think she's in Avenue Q right now.
