This MT Space Announces Self-Tape Intensive with Lindsay Levine

Last month, composer and lyricist team Will Reynolds and Eric Price (winners of the 2018 Fred Ebb Award) launched This MT Space, an online education platform, with two Zoom-based classes. "Filling the Page" taught musical theatre writing and "Filling the Gaps" was focused on career-building and featured conversations with Patti Murin, Aisha Jackson, Jeremy Jordan, Laura Osnes, Marc Bruni, Jennifer Ashley Tepper, Justin Guarini, and more.

This MT Space is now rolling out a new class: a self-tape intensive called "Filling the Tape" which will meet online in early August.

The class will be co-taught by Broadway casting director Lindsay Levine (Dear Evan Hanson, Bandstand, Cats, Billy Elliot) and will focus on the combination of musical theatre performance with on-camera technique.


Self-tapes have been a major component of the casting process and will become even more integral in the future. All participants in "Filling the Tape" will have the chance to create self-tape material (no special camera equipment required), hear detailed analysis in class, and receive private one-to-one feedback. Sheet music and accompaniment tracks will be provided. Additionally, there will be discussions of filming equipment (at every budgetary level), examples of successful and unsuccessful self-tapes from the professional world, Q&As, and a special conversation with Hamilton Dance Supervisor Ryan Kasprzak about self-tapes for dance.

Registration for the classes is currently open. Please visit www.thisMTspace.com for more information.
