About the Ticket Supplier: T. Schreiber Studio
On January 25, 1999 the T. Schreiber Studio was recognized by the Office of the Mayor of the City of New York for, "Its dedication to making it possible for New Yorkers to enjoy some of the most talented actors, directors and playwrights. For 30 years T. Schreiber Studio's commitment to the theater arts has made it one of the foremost professional theatre studios and helped make New York City the Theatre Capitol of the World."
Terry Schreiber was also congratulated on that date by then Vice President (now Nobel laureate) Al Gore, "I am pleased to have this opportunity to send you my congratulations as you are recognized for 30 years of teaching the craft of acting. You should be proud of this accomplishment. Your dedication, commitment and perseverance in nurturing new talent has served the New York theatre community well."
The T. Schreiber Studio began in 1969 with Terry Schreiber teaching classes twice a week to twelve actors in a converted loft on the Upper East Side of New York City. Enrollment increased and the group began mounting productions in what were the early beginnings of New York City's Off-Off Broadway movement and building its reputation of high quality productions and performances.
The studio continued to grow, adding more faculty, more actors, and more plays and in the mid 70's, drama critic Walter Kerr's glowing review in the New York Times of Schreiber's production of The Trip Back Down, brought the Studio much attention and packed houses. The Trip Back Down then moved to Broadway and John Cullum (Northern Exposure) was signed to do the lead.
Throughout the 1980's and into the 90's the T. Schreiber Studio continued to produce good actors and good theatre, adding Betty Buckley to its prestigious faculty and residing at 83 East Fourth Street, the burgeoning street of Off-Off Broadway. During that time Terry Schreiber continued his own directing career with two more Broadway shows: Devour the Snow and K-2, and numerous regional theatre productions providing more casting opportunities for studio actors.
In 1996 the Studio moved to its current, renovated multi-use space on the 7th floor of 151 West 26th Street in New York's lively Chelsea neighborhood. Classes and productions run continuously throughout the year.
