'entertainer' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both people as well as being singular nouns.
Perhaps there's an association between them I don't understand?

'turning to drama' is the wordplay.
'turning' indicates an anagram.
'to'+'drama'='todrama'
'todrama' is an anagram of 'MATADOR'.
