Even if it isn’t written down or typed up in a Word document, most of us have a lifelong to-do list. Whether it’s traveling to all seven continents, buying a house, learning Italian, or mastering meringue-making, we all have goals and dreams to pursue. But some of them are laden with fear: can I really do ______?
Joanna Torreano had wanted to act in a play for a long time, but the fear of auditioning left her putting it off until she was well into her 40s. When she saw a notice about "West Side Story" auditions, she knew from the get-go that she wasn’t qualified: she could neither “sing 16 bars of a song” nor had any “dance attire.” But guess what? She went anyway!
To her surprise, she got the part! In the process, Torreano met many talented people, including a young actor with his own “bucket list.” She says, “My philosophy has always been to try things. Some have been utter failures. And some attempts have been successful.”
