I describe my work with actors as bridging the gap between prior training—be it conservatory or otherwise—and what it’s actually like to work on-set or to prepare for a major audition. The goal: to create inspired work that doesn’t “reek” of acting technique.
Step 1: Realize that you are more interesting than the role.
Step 2: Live truthfully under imaginary circumstances.
Step 3: Take it off the page.
And then come on down to the Tom Todoroff Studio. The more I read articles from every different coach out there, the more I realize that this is the one studio that incorporates EVERYTHING.
Because I just had to write a bio for the Tom Todoroff website.
And I have updated my personal website as well!
Michael Kostroff is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers for Backstage. His articles are helpful and informative.
This one, about Comedy, is a good, quick read. Tom Todoroff and Michael Shurtleff would call this “Finding the Humor” (or Guidepost #4). There is humor in every scene.
Noteworthy article by Risa Bramon Garcia, who came to teach at The Tom Todoroff Conservatory!
(Last one for today!)
Last Thursday, my acting coach, Tom Todoroff, hosted a FREE class at the Drama Book Shop. All you had to do was show up. If you wanted to, you could sign yourself up to perform. (And why wouldn’t you!?)
Not only did you have the opportunity to take a FREE acting class, but two members of the Tom Todoroff Acting Conservatory Faculty attended. It was a great opportunity to get into relationship with distinguished members of the acting community in New York City. Mari Lyn Henry, author of “How To Be a Working Actor”, and Sue Henderson of HendersonEnterprises.com, were there and open to talking to everyone. They want to see actors succeed. They will teaching at the Tom Todoroff Conservatory in the Fall. For more information, visit www.TomTodoroff.com/Conservatory.
We also had acting coach, John Pallotta attend! Not to mention, all the actors who came to learn and perform. You never know who you might meet and form life-long bonds with.
Take advantage of FREE!
I just wanted to let you all know that I’ve been working very hard the past couple of weeks, and unable to post.
Some amazing things have happened, and I’ve been very fortunate to have them happen to me.
Twice in two days, I’ve been thrown in to read with the actors of a major TV series. It was because of my training at the Tom Todoroff Studio and constant independent work that I was able to be prepared at a moments notice. One day I’m part of the crew, the next second I’m acting.
Check out my acting coach’s article in Backstage!!
Woot, Tom Todoroff!
