How to become an established actor and musical theater "star" is the question, Emily asks John Cullum.

Cullum tells what happened to him, when he arrived in NYC with a letter of recommendation from the head of the drama department at the University of Tennessee.

Wow what memories. I bought ShowBusiness and a few other trade papers religiously and would spend a huge amount of time looking for anything that remotely looked promising.

I was the queen of auditions from the age of 3 through 18. LOL I had an agent as a kid so they sent me on a zillion auditions as well..but later on I did it on my own...Then I said...enough and studied interior design, which for me was a wise choice. ;-)

Had I had the talent of a John Cullum, maybe I might have gotten more work.
