Performing Arts

Weekly conversations with fellow creatives on the fine line between setback and success in the performing arts. They share their unique journey as artists and the lessons learned along the way with host Patrick Oliver Jones, an actor who knows first-hand the ups and downs we all face.

After our in-depth discussion on producing in NYC and balancing that with an acting career, Abigail now shares bucket lists and who she looks up to. These final five questions get into topics and insights not covered in our previous conversation.

  • If you could have any other job outside of the arts what would it be?
  • What is a bucket list role or show you still hope to do one day?
  • Who do you look up to? A mentor or someone who inspires you.
  • Name a lesson or trait that took you awhile to learn or one that you are still learning to this day?
  • What’s the best advice you’ve received?
