I am an actor on the national tour of Disney's The Lion King. We stay in each city between 4 and 8 weeks. While in each city, I am performing 8 shows a week, 6 days a week, mostly in the evenings.
I love the opportunity I've been given to travel and see the country with my job. In each city, I look for what makes it special and unique. I look for farmer's markets, bookstores, cafes and restaurants -- really, the things that make each city tick. It's funny how easy it is to become a "regular" when you're on the road -- you find a place you like and go there a few times, suddenly people get to know you. It makes you live in the present, since you have no past and there is only a limited time you have in any one place.
