      Meryl Streep's acting is excellent off-screen also. Most people think of film and television, but if you have the opportunity to find a broadcast or recording of Meryl Streep on NPRs Selected Shorts, her performance is amazing. Also, her readings of The Velveteen Rabbit children's story, Tailor of Gloucester, and Peter Rabbit and Jeremey Fisher by Beatrix Potter, The Night Before Christmas, all part of Rabbit Ears Entertainment are excellent. Also, she has several narrated books I notice on Audible.com. I want the ACTORS to realize that there are so many OPPORTUNITIES for acting outside of television and film. I'm sure Meryl Streep would agree that an actor must find many avenues to perform and thrive in an acting career OUTSIDE of television and film.
