“The play [or musical] is the director’s baby…. The director must decide whom she trusts to “hold the baby.” Are you trustworthy and reliable?

For one week before and one week after the launch of the new MusicalSingers.com, we conducted a survey to learn more about you, the rockin’ singers of the musical world. Part of the purpose of this site is to build community. To find encouragement in knowing you’re not alone in this journey to accomplish your dreams! So here’s a cross section of you, our readers, where you’re from, what your struggles are, and who you’d like to hear from most.
If we boiled the results down into a “reader profile,” it would look like this: Our average reader is a either in college or holding an advanced degree and working in regional theatre across the United States.
As far as challenges facing musical singers, here’s how you weighed in with the topics presented:
