    Barb is an actor, director, trainer, coach and published author.  Her book Getting Your Act Together explores how to use the skills and tools that the actor uses both on stage and on the real stage of everyday live. She believes that we are all onstage everyday with a role to play in the show called life, with an audience who will hopefully give rave reviews and demand encore performances.
