“There is not a single entertainer around that has reached success by staying on the same career path,” actor-turned-diagnostic medical sonographer Grand L. Bush said today. “In fact, research shows that the average American between ages eighteen and forty-six will explore as many as fifteen different occupations before landing the perfect gig.

According to the audience’s thunderous response to multi-talented stage actor JD Driskill‘s predominate deftness as a singer and dancer, this young thespian may be on the road to greatness.
Driskill is one of 18 rotating cast members kicking up their heels in “Doctor! Doctor!,” an interactive musical review that premiered February 1 at the Stages of Gray Theatre, a new and intimate venue in Pasadena that affords emerging performing artists an opportunity to practice their craft while showcasing their talent before a live audience.
