We are so thrilled that Allan is teaching this May Interlude, in our time slot for the Shakespeare Workout.
Allan’s workshop runs May 4th-25th (Tuesdays, 2-5pm at Antaeus in North Hollywood).
“Every marvelous piano player knows you don’t just go out and play concertos, you have to practice fingering, chord structures, arpeggios, dynamics, etc. Every terrific basketball player knows you don’t just go out and play games, you practice dribbling, jump shots, lay-ups, etc. For any creative actor there are five basic areas of work: text, character, situation, interpretation, and the actor’s habits. This class will focus on the process of practice.
Please join me for my May workshop: What & How to Rehearse—in any medium, from first readings and auditions to full production. We will work on cold readings, monologues, scenes, even songs.”
