    June 18th: Virtual Workshop of Shakespeare's Richard III

    June 18th: Virtual Workshop of Shakespeare's Richard III

    We're doing a LIVE event with veteran and rookie actors! And as you know from acting class: you learn as much from WATCHING others as you do from performing, so this will be a great chance for you to sit in and learn from the actors as they work through the scenes and to ask your questions of both them and the dramaturg. I believe there's a unique opportunity to pool talents right now, and to also help those "stuck at home" by creating extraordinary opportunities to learn and play.

Gave me so much confidence

This is the best podcast on acting that I've been able to find. It has given me so much more confidence. As an actor, I've had a bit of a rough time, because I'm on the autism spectrum. It took me much longer than some of my friends to get down the basic techniques of acting, so I've had to work almost twice as hard as everyone else, but now I'm one of the best in my class. This podcast has shown me that I'm not the only one with obstacles, but if I put in the work I can overcome them and be even greater than I was before. So thank you for making an amazing podcast!

Something g I’ve looked for for a while

I could never find a podcast for actors. This was so helpful for me as an actor to give me something to listen to, to keep me inspired
