Although the pending merger is certainly an incentive to "get in" now, I would say it's a personal decision. If you think you have enough experience under your belt to put a reel together and that you've built relationships with all the casting agents in town, then perhaps you could make the move. But it puts you in a position of not being able to do non-union work, which, in my estimation, is about 80% of the work in this market. So while it sounds attractive, unless you're willing to work both the Boston and New York markets you may miss out on a lot of opportunities that would allow you to get exposure and experience that will serve you well when you do sign up. I'd wait it out if I were you, but, like I said, only you know what's best for you!
