    • AudibleA good story, and I think I'd have enjoyed it more had it been shorter. The length made it unfortunately too repetitive. Maybe if Kevin were a lit less of a pain in the back side I COULD live with it, but he was a WAAAY too annoying. (Are all actors such narcissistic drama queens?!)A nice ending though. Sean Lenhart is a good narrator.


    • Definitely Enjoyable "The Role," is complicated, angtsy fun. Mason Burroughs is a wannabe Broadway actor. Little does he know that an old friend, and former crush, Kevin, will make things complicated for him by first getting him "the role" in a very important production. A life changing, soul searching, relationship changing role. Once he accepts the gig, life changes for him.This is a great book, full of gossipy Broadway insight, mixed in with a twisted story of unrequited love and a tale of ro [...]


    • I loved getting in to the audition and rehearsal process with Mason, which is what the majority of this novel covers. It's clear that Pearson's either been through it or has connections that helped him with the research to make this feel right. I love that we get inside Mason's head as he struggles with his own self doubt, even as he's growing as an actor. Pearson also takes the time to fully flesh out Kevin, the director Merchant and Mason's boyfriend Eric, along with some of the other supporti [...]


    • Wow! Just Wow! Having a Theatre background led me to this book and let me tell you I devoured every sentence in the book. All of the explaination on "finding your character" and such was exellently written without being too complicated for someone who has never done theatre. I loved the characters. Mason (well I saw much of myself in that character.) was young, not stunning but nice looking but with a heart.Kevin the great looking professional actor who can pretty much have someone with just a l [...]


    • The Role stars Mason as a self-absorbed average guy who lands an extraordinary lead role in a Broadway show. Tension between him and his former crush (and current co-star), Kevin, create problems throughout the story for Mason’s boyfriend, Eric. Mason tries to dig deep into his soul to create his new Broadway character and bond with Kevin on stage and off, while still trying to maintain his commitments to Eric, in this very New York-style gay love triangle.Mason becomes very Black-Swan in the [...]


    • I loved this book -- it was unique. I have not read widely in LGBT literature, but have seen so many books in the genre focused totally on Romance (with a capital R). This book included romance, and some sexual situations (although it was not overly explicit) but that was not the true focus. There was a deeper story here, one that theatre people -- and really, any artist, musician, writer, (or just ambitious person) can understand. It was the pull between fame and love, and the sacrifices one mu [...]


    • The Role, a debut novel, about an actor with Broadway dreams which touches on deep psychological damage and the push and pull of relationships under great stress is plotted well and strikes a powerful chord. Mason is a sympathetic if flawed character who leads us on a journey between the struggles of actors and directors striving for greatness at all costs. I cared for him and disliked him at times. Kevin is also deeply damaged and a bit harder to like, right up to the ending. The director, Merc [...]


    • Well, quite an intense read - with so much of the play in there and all the nuances between Mason and Kevin there is no skim reading, it all has to be read.It is quite an involved read with the play, Kevin's machinations, Eric and Mason. Though Eric is really an unknown as we see little of him but he is central to the whole story - and I found myself routing for him the most.Wasn't sure about Merchant either - whether he was playing some odd sort of long game.But I suppose the messages are becar [...]



    • I've had this book sitting on my nightstand FOREVER, and finally had a chance to give it a read!I regret waiting so long.Well-drawn characters, and an emotional intensity that I thoroughly enjoyed.


    • There's a lot in here about the actual work of acting and creating a character– a lot more psychological than I realized. Fascinating stuff– although it easily could have gone in a different direction (closer to horror or thriller). The reviewer who referenced Black Swan is right on the nose.


    • I love reading new authors but really hate it when the story comes up short. That was the case with this story. It was interesting but I could not seem to connect with either of the MC’s. That made it fairly difficult to read. In fact started to read it and then would quit and read another book and then go back to it. I did like the whole story plot that was very interesting as I love the theater. Not sure if I could read another book by this author but because of the story line I would certai [...]


    • This book was so much fun to read! The romance, intrigue, and backstage drama made it a real page turner. It's especially great for theater lovers, as it provides a full look at the making of a show. Great debut novel!
