Ep 18: Michael Wartella
Mike spent ten years in the city before landing his dream role and first major New York production - RENT at the Off-Broadway venue New World Stages. Since then he's reached even greater heights on Broadway with WICKED, TUCK EVERLASTING, and CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY.
But there's also been some pauses and setbacks along the way, both personal and professional, from divorce and sharing custody of their son to years of struggling to be noticed and cast in shows.
With age comes wisdom, though, and Mike shares the insights he has learned and continues to learn about the entertainment industry as well as himself and finding balance in his life.
