Between Cut and Action

Shelley Mitchell

As a drama coach in LA, I dialogue with performing artists every day. We talk about what is meaningful to them and why we do what we do. ...This podcast asks filmmakers, actors, singers and dancers about how they got started, what keeps them inspired between gigs, and how they stay focused on stage or on set between cut and action. www.ShelleyMitchell.org read less

Inspired beyond measure, Shelley adapted the book into a solo stage play that has been performed at festivals, churches, and small theaters in the United States and Europe.Now, Shelley is thrilled to bring elements of her powerful stage performance into this new audiobook.
