From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Through my unique and fun approach to verse and text work, I help actors find the most authentic acting choices for them that are supported by the text so that they stand out from the crowd!
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Students should bring a notebook and a pencil. If they are bringing in a specific piece they would like to work on, a copy of the text is helpful. I am happy to hand-select monologues for current students, and provide reference materials during class sessions.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I was consistently helping my friends (and friends of friends) with their classical material. After helping my friend Amy prepare for an audition, she said, "Why aren't you getting paid for this?!"
What do you love most about your job?
My favorite part of my job is when people who have never been attracted to Shakespeare, but have to do it for a class or an audition suddenly have a "lightbulb moment" - they finally understand what they're saying, and it becomes personal. Suddenly, they love it! It happens all the time!
