The Big Q
What’s your role?
Often, we consider a “role” as a negative concept, that we are cast and limited. In show business, all roles are essential and valuable. It’s your performance that’s unlimited. Performing your role to the best of your ability brings you acclaim. The trouble with real life is our role is not as obvious as a playbill. And yet, once you know your role, you can shine.
Cheers to another great season!
