#18: Why I'll Never Make It w/ Patrick Oliver Jones (EVITA, THE ADDAMS FAMILY)
What does "making it" mean to you? What holds you back? What keeps you going?
This week I got to chat with fellow NYC-based actor, Patrick Oliver Jones. Patrick has been blessed with an incredible career thus far... traveling across the country on the national tours of THE ADDAMS FAMILY and EVITA, appearing off-Broadway, co-starring in a couple of major television shows including Law & Order and Blue Bloods, etc. He is also the host of the Why I'll Never Make It podcast, showcasing a "lighthearted yet revealing look at the challenges of a career in the arts."
This episode features my intimate chat with Patrick as we bonded over the ins and outs of the showbiz, New York City, college, rejection, our experiences auditioning, understudying and performing, and of course... working with Broadway composer and mutual friend, Andrew Lippa.
