Hello! I'm planning to move to NYC after college to pursue a career in theatre (either in stage makeup, dramaturgy..something of that nature). I'm pursuing my BA in Theatre Studies in Indiana but I would like some advice and tips on what i need to do in order to get by in New York. I don't mind living in a small apartment with roommates as long as I will be able to live in a safe neighborhood, and I don't mind waiting tables while working to pursue a career in theatre either. Thanks for the help! Let me know if you need more clarification.
PS: Totally open to living in Brooklyn OR Manhattan as long as it's not a terrible neighborhood.
