My answer would be no.
I actually also was a big musical theater/theater geek. It was a passion for me for many years. But I’ve also wanted to become a lawyer since I was in fifth grade, which is why I went to law school. Law school is too expensive and too hard to just do “in case” something else doesn’t pan out, especially if that something else is something you love. Sure, you can go to law school, no one would stop you, but what a lot of people forget is that it’s a professional school. That means you’re going to have a profession, not a job. You’re locked in. Of course you could leave it later, but that would mean that the three years of law school tuition and sweat (and your youth!) that you poured in have gone to waste.
Don’t go to law school unless you want to become a lawyer. Don’t go to law school as a back-up, as last resort. Too many lawyers (especially litigators) are already frustrated actors.
