There is a lot of decent information in How to Make it in Musicals, but most of it is aimed at children who are interested in being performers when they're older. For adults pursuing a career change, a good amount of the specific information is either mostly irrelevant or mostly unhelpful. In terms of general information, such as general skills or training needed, the book is good, but a completely indispensable guide to a career in musical theatre this book is not.

If any parent that has a daughter or son that is wanting a career in theatre must read this book, the younger the better. Have your daughter or son read it also. Our daughter at the age of 11 said she wanted to be on Broadway. Her mother & I thought we did the best at helping her pursue her dream. We wish we had read this book back then. After reading this book recently we found out the positive things we did and things we needed to be aware of that would have helped prepare her for her career. Our daughter is now in her second year of College at the University of Miami, majoring in Musical Theatre. The wealth of knowledge that we have gained from this book has better prepared our daughter for what she needs to continue to do to have a career in Theatre. Throughout her career this book will continue to guide and help her at different stages in her career.
This book is not just for those that want to be in Musical Theatre, but for all that want to pursue a career in Theatre. This is a must read book for those who want to pursue their dream in Theatre. It tells the truths and sometimes the harsh realities of what to do and what to expect.

This was one of the most informative books on how to make it in musical theatre that I have read thus far. I loved it! Not only was it informative, but entertaining as well. It's reassuring to know that this book is written by such a talented entertainer who has so much experience in this field. This book is indispensible to anyone seeking a career in musical theatre.

Do you want to be a musical theater performer. Star in a Broadway show one day. Appear in the National Tour of The Producers or Les Miz. Or how about work in a theme park or on a cruise ship. How about dinner theaters, summer stock, regional theater or Las Vegas. Well, if any of this sounds right for you, then, How to Make it in Musicals is the Bible book you must read. You'll learn everything you need to know from training to agents to finding work. Not only does this book have information for musical theater performers but anyone including actors, singers, variety artist and all those wanting to perform can find some useful information here. That's all I have to say, because if you are serious then you will buy this book and read and re-read it.

Michael Allen (aka Michael Lebovitz)..

Went through several court proceedings in the State of Colorado for being accused of sexual conduct with minors. He is currently serving time in the Arizona Department of Corrections after being convicted of the same (and kidnapping). Do not allow your children anywhere near this sex offender.
