Back Stage Readers' Choice Awards
As a Back Stage reader, your opinion counts. Every year since 2006, we've asked you to pick your favorite headshot photographers, acting teachers, rehearsal spaces, and other providers of actors' services. Once again, you responded and made your voice heard. Thanks to all who participated, and here are the top three in each category, in order of the number of votes received. (Back Stage does not endorse any of those listed below; they are chosen by an impartial online poll.)
