Manga: Skip Beat!
With Glass Mask and Skip Beat, both of the female leads will do what it takes to make it in the entertainment world, even though their agenda and ultimate goals are different. They are also long running series. Skip Beat with over 20 volumes, and Glass Mask with over 40 - and still ongoing. If you like one, you would enjoy the other.

Manga: Ashita no Ousama
They both talk about plays and acting. :) Ashita no Ousama, on the other hand, talks about the script writer and how their script makes it to the screen, so to speak. :)

Manga: Cat Street
Cat Street is very short and sweet; it's more about the main character being outcasted for being so good at acting at a young age and than having her role in a play stolen from her. It's not something you should read if you want to read something long, but if you want something semi-short and sweet, than this is the manga for you. It reminds me of Glass Mask with the acting part of it.

Manga: Nodame Cantabile
Both are about talented young artists fighting to get somewhere in life, but the two have very different approaches to it

Manga: Kodomo no Omocha
They're both great shojo manga about a young girl striving to succeed in the world of acting. Although Kodocha is mostly centered around relationship between the two main characters, while Glass Mask is more focused on the acting part of the story, they both show what it means to be famous and how much pleasure and hardships it can bring you.

Manga: Red
Both are about two young girls who have a strong and scary passion for something they like. In Glass Mask, maya loves acting and in Red, Becky loves photography/model. Both of them have something to do with the same business. They start out with a poor background. Both Maya and Becky had to deal with a lot of problems to be the top. The art in both manga are old.

Manga: Penguin Kakumei
Althought the main characters are not so similar
the overplot is. Both is about acting and achieving the position of being No.1
The past that was the most similar was the part where they mention the play Staircase to Heaven (i dont remember the clearly, Penguin Revolution)
it is the same as the play Scarlet Angel (Glass mask)
they both state that if you are the main leading female character of this play, it means that you are the best actress around

Manga: Mou Hitori no Marionette
Both involve acting, where there's a sincere girl with a ridiculous amount of potential being brought out by a guy already influential in the field.

Manga: Swan
Both drawings are similar-old art. They both focus on young girls who want to be in the stage industry like theatre and ballet. Maya and Masumi are similar, they are clumsy and have a hardcore passion for the thing they do. Not just that, they both don't know that they have the talent and always have no confidence. The stories also have great rivals.

Manga: Private Actress
Love of Acting and Drama! Though Private Actress is more episodic than Glass Mask, both heroines exhibit strength and admirable ability for the sake of acting!

Manga: Antique Romance
Though set in different time periods, both stories have a male lead who secretly admires the female lead who is much younger than he. These two male characters are rich and have cold-hearted facades, but are actually kind and gentle. They are also acting as the benefactors of the girls; however, in Glass Mask, the girl is unaware of whom she is indebted to.

Manga: Shinshi Doumei Cross
There was a hilarious reference to Glass Mask in chpt 4 of SDC, so I thought of recommending it.

Both mangas do have never-ending drama, so much so that it can feel like you're watching a soap opera :3 Yet, the main female leads never give up in whatever they're doing. Both reads are quite enjoyable in their own ways, often silly but full of drama.

Manga: Kuragehime
Both convey an art style similar to "classic shojo/josei manga" (though Kuragehime is more modern and is merely influenced by it).

But other than the occasional art style, both feature a heroine who initially seemed useless, but over time gained her ambition by following her obsession (whether it would be Acting for Glass Mask, or Jellyfish dresses for Kuragehime). And lastly, both feature a highly stylish, rich male who serves as that push or force to the heroine's ambition.
