    Come for the extensive catalog of plays, librettos and acting books. Stay for the sage advice given to hopeful theater actors by Chester, a talking dog with encyclopedic knowledge of everything drama.

    The only place in the world where you can find every play ever produced. Staff is extremely knowledgable. If they don't have it here they can tell you where to find it!

    So happy to have stumbled on this place while feeling the day job blues. Keeps me mindful that this is what I am to be focusing on, my acting career. Beats clicking on a tablet any day hands down.
