The Stella Adler Studio of Acting is an acting school based in New York City founded by actress and teacher Stella Adler in 1949. Adler founded the Studio on her belief in the seriousness of her art. Adler and the school have trained many of the brilliant actors of our time, including Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, and Elaine Stritch. The Stella Adler Studio of Acting is a nonprofit organization, which trains over 500 actors annually. Each year the Stella Adler Outreach Division provides free theater programs to hundreds of young people who live below the poverty line and has reached nearly 5,000 youth since 2004. The Studio also presents public lectures, poetry readings, concerts, theater performances, dance theater events and an annual arts festival. www.stellaadler.com.
