Susan Blackwell, Billy Crudup, Maria Dizzia, & More to Teach at NY Acting Intensive Today
Tony award-winner Billy Crudup (The Coast of Utopia) teams up with Broadway performer Susan Blackwell ([title of show]), Tony nominee Maria Dizzia (In the Next Room), television, theater and film actor Peter Jacobson (House, M.D.) and Broadway performer and director Jessica Stone (Match) for a one-day acting intensive today, November 17th at the Manhattan Theatre Club. The New York Series Acting Intensive offers a new approach to the traditional day of classes in that the afternoon sessions will build upon the technique taught in the morning sessions.
At this exclusive day-long event, students will start their morning with Susan Blackwell teaching her unique method of communication and rehearsal technique. They will then be personally assigned scenes to work on in-class with other students. After rehearsing, students will be split into two groups and present their scenes twice during rotating acting classes with Billy Crudup, Maria Dizzia, Peter Jacobson and Jessica Stone. All students will have classes with all faculty members. This exciting acting intensive will be overseen by The Performing Arts Project’s Artist Director and Broadway Associate Director Jonathan Bernstein (The Iceman Cometh) and is open to all students, ages 16-26, with no audition required.
