      Kevin is growing as an actor, both in terms of the art and the business.

Chelsea works at a Soho boutique and is in the process of interviewing managers when she gets a call from the casting director at GUIDING LIGHT. She goes in for a meeting and comes out with a recurring soap opera role. Jimmy is quick to admit that he's never satisfied with what he has. That's why he's looking for ways to move beyond the ensemble in THE FULL MONTY. When he meets talk show producer Michael Krauss Jimmy thinks his dreams of hosting a daytime variety show will be realized. He quickly learns the process is slower than he imagined.moreless

After much deliberation (and a visit to a psychic) she arrives at her choice. Latarsha leaves the ranks of open call supplicants by signing with an agent. Big league representation doesn't mean she won't still encounter racism in some of its more subtle forms.moreless

      Jimmy distracts himself from his anxiety about waiting to hear from Ed by a trip to see his family in small town New Jersey where he's treated like a big star.

Before she goes, she auditions for Sex and the City. Will she get the part and have to change her plans? Nathan is frustrated by New York auditions. When he first started out as an actor getting cast came easily now, each time he goes up for a role he's videotaped, the tape is sent to LA and who really knows what happens next?

Queen Esther and her director produce STAGE DOOR CANTEEN, a USO-type show to entertain the rescue workers. Jimmy gives us a working Broadway actor's perspective on the events following September 11th as he takes part in a candlelight vigil and joins all of Broadway in a rendition of "New York, New York."moreless

When an audition for THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL conflicts with her commitment to testing her students, she realizes that she must choose between her two loves. PJ's role as a fairy in THE DONKEY SHOW is so physically grueling that he gives notice so that he can pursue other acting jobs and his one-man show. What he didn't anticipate was that he would also lose his day job. He must now face his choices as a "working actor" without an income. Miranda finally gets a part - the role of "Leslie the Lesbian" in an independent film. The only catch is, when she shows up for the shoot, nobody is there.moreless

      Katheryn is on the verge of deciding between her lives in Toronto and New York.

Upon Katheryn's return to New York, she and Steve celebrate their anniversary and commitment to each other at least for now! Despite her financial woes, Latarsha continues to chase her dream of becoming an actress.

Her financial worries seem to come to an end when she gets cast in a Hyundai national commercial spot. Daisy musters enthusiasm for another degrading audition to play the head of Joan of Arc in a trade show.

      Daisy gets a tattoo, proving (to herself at least) that she has grown beyond the little girl from The Secret Garden. Her conflict between past and present is further illustrated as she struggles with the musical theater world's expectations of her and her dreams for herself. PJ' s role as a fairy in The Donkey Show looks like lots of fun. At least at first. We learn that his glamorous-seeming job is taking an unglamorous toll on his body and career. Queen Esther is a woman of many talents. We see a sampling of these as she clowns with her brother, performs at PSNBC, and researches her one-woman show about reparations, The Big Payback. Jimmy isn't satisfied with his role as an understudy in The Full Monty so he auditions for a part in the network sitcom, Ed.moreless

      Life seems sweet for Miranda as she waits for the call to start shooting her role in Third Watch. Joy quickly turns to disappointment when her part is written out of the script. Katheryn's life as a Tae Kwan Do instructor in Toronto is in sharp contrast with the way she races around New York City.

      Chelsea is anxious about her appearance on GUIDING LIGHT. The tension mounts when she realizes she's forgotten to bring a necklace that's crucial for continuity. Disaster is averted and anxiety is transformed to delight when she finds out the producers want her to return to shoot more episodes. PJ has quit THE DONKEY SHOW and lost his day job, so he's going to open calls. He auditions for CABARET. Then he and his friend Leonora wait in line for almost seven hours for a one-minute RENT audition. Katheryn shows us what a consummate professional she truly is when she stars in a student horror film for which "amateur" seems far too generous a description.moreless

      Nathan's trip to LA starts at a low point - his friend is hours late picking him up at the airport and gets lower as we see that his manager has unexpectedly left town and Nathan won't get to go on any auditions during his trip to the West coast. Nathan philosophizes as he plays golf and waits to fly back to New York. Michaela is coping with her new life in Los Angeles, especially the car culture. She auditions for a Mitsubishi commercial and we see that although she was considered an actress in New York, she's being categorized as an Asian actress in LA. Miranda shows us once again what a scrapper she truly is. An audit, embarrassing auditions, and even a car accident can't defeat her.moreless
