Julio Agustin is assistant professor of theatre and dance at James Madison University. He has performed in six Broadway shows—including Chicago and Fosse—and runs a monthly audition studio in New York City, The Transition Workshop.
Kathleen Potts is an academic, dramaturge, and award-winning playwright on faculty at The City College of New York, CUNY.
Julio Agustin is professional and dedicated to his beliefs. I love his desire and need to assist gifted artists to not let fear and rejection stop them from fulfilling their dreams and capabilities. His book does just that. I’m proud of him.

Read. This. Book. Julio shares his insightful knowledge, that he’s acquired personally and professionally, so that everyone can have a better shot at being at their best in any situation. He has a generous heart and that comes through as a person, as an artist, a teacher, and now as an author. These are lessons not only for theater, but for everyday life.

If you can even imagine yourself in any other industry, do that. Otherwise, be creative, be smart and get this book! Julio Agustin maps out the practical side of the very impractical business of Show Business.
— Cady Huffman, Tony–Award winning actress, The Producers
I have had the pleasure of representing Julio Agustin. We’ve kept in touch, and he’s a very talented professor/teacher, performer. His book contains some very valuable, incisive, up to date information that is quite useful for performers. I recommend his book highly.

This is the business handbook for every young actor. It is a must read to transition from artistic academia to the real word of acting.
