SIDELIGHTS:

Craig P. Wroe told CA: "During the twenty-plus years that I have lived and worked as an actor in New York, I have become the master of living above my means without paying above my means. Unwilling to sacrifice quality of life with a tight performer's budget, I have devoted a large amount of time, effort, and energy to getting superior products, help, and services for less. Blessed with a photographic memory, a network of friends and colleagues whom I continually poll for tips on the best and least expensive that New York has to offer, and compulsive organizational skills, I have accumulated mountains of information regarding everything from how to find an affordable apartment to inexpensive shopping outlets, resources for quality products and services at bargain prices, financial institutions, support organizations, free and cheap entertainment, and low-cost medical and legal providers."
