I'm a high school senior looking to apply to numerous BFA and BA programs in theatre/acting across the country, including universities like USC, NYU, Northwestern, and Boston U. I'm also applying to some smaller liberal arts schools like Muhlenberg and Vassar, located in smaller towns and cities.
How important do you think it is for an aspiring actor to be located in or near the theatre hubs like Chicago, L.A. or NYC? I know that Muhlenberg has a wonderful program where I'll learn a lot, but it's also located in Allentown, PA, where there aren't many opportunities for actors. Is the education itself all that really matters (because graduates can just move to New York afterwords), or is location a huge factor for a theatre student's future career?
