The Compass, a podcast dedicated to the various struggles of actors, writers, directors, designers, dancers, musicians, composers and playwrights, welcomes actress Liz Jenkins September 9.
In the latest episode, Jenkins shares her thoughts on being an actor in LA, sketch comedy and improv, confidence, bringing yourself out in auditions, and making your own work. She also discusses her current project, the WERK web series.
Last year Leah Walsh launched The Compass: It recently released its 39th episode and has exceeded 10,000 downloads. The podcast explores the idea of “the dark side” of making theatre and how to overcome the challenges associated with the industry.
Each week, Playbill.com will highlight Walsh’s latest episode with industry professionals who share their own stories about making art, making a living and maintaining inspiration.
