From this performance she's 50/50 to make it. In other words not great.
I see your two decades in stage management and raise you: 22 years musician, actor (union and non), stagehand (union and non), technical director, production manager, carpenter, electrician, stage manager, sound engineer, lighting designer, scenic designer, and director.

I started theater at 12. I was making music videos before MTV existed. I love the theater (I don't care much for the talent, prima donas I have no patience for). I have wondered about what is art and what is not.
Here is the question I was really asking (and I have enjoyed your input very much), if she is pursue an entertainment career, should she pursue theater or recording and why? She is going to pursue such a career and she will be employed. What should the measure of success be? Her personal measure. The title of my thread was "Theater versus Record Sales". In my opinion, rather than focusing on money, she should focus on doing her passion and I believe it is in theater. Peace.
Why would the two be mutually exclusive? There are plenty of people who have done both and then some. I would say ultimately she should do what she wants to. But that will be difficult for her now that she is in the spotlight. Cheers.
