Description

The History of Sanford Meisner’s Acting Class

is a remarkable, unforgettable theatrical experience. Once the audience enters the theater, they’re no longer audience members—they are students in the same acting class attended by Joanne Woodward, Robert Duvall, Gregory Peck, Mary Steenburgen, Grace Kelly, Eli Wallach, Steve McQueen, Geraldine Page, Sydney Pollack, Mark Rydell and other famous actors whose lives were forever changed by Sanford Meisner.

One of the most unique aspects of the production are the six sections where video, projected via rear-screen, dissolves up through black scrim of “students” doing scene work. These segments are from actual teaching exchanges between Sanford Meisner and his students, which have been restaged using Meisner-trained actors, then shot and edited in such a way that the classroom seems to come to life.
