New York, NY
I am offering a Free Musical Theatre Intensive on Thursday, July 30th starting at 7:30 PM. I will be working with artists (age 18 and up), of all skill level and experience. My intention is to open a few class slots to actors who are interested in performing, while the rest are open to those who may only want to observe. We will focus on accessing a deeper understanding of how music and lyric analyses pertain to, and unlock, character. My goal is to utilize the tools that Zoom allows us to benefit from, including the sharing of screens, to mine each actors’ material for all of its detail. It is sure to be a fun, fact-filled, and immersive way to experience something new in a safe space!
