Need Some Inspiration?

Hi Nancy,
I was just reading an article in our local paper about Audra MacDonald  who is a big Broadway star – she is nominated for her 5th Tony this weekend, if she wins she will tie with Julie Harris for most wins….she was in “Ragtime” and a few other productions.  About 10 years ago she was trying to make a living at opera – she studied at Juilliard but she wasn’t getting parts and things were getting miserable. Because of feeling low in her career and relationship trouble – i.e. a guy dumping her she slit her wrists and tried to commit suicide. After being at the bottom she realized that maybe she should go back to her first love, musical theatre and lo and behold the parts and success started coming including the Tony nominations.  Anyway, I just thought this was so inspiring – what she would have missed if she had given up (not to mention the joy she brought to audiences)! ~A Reader
