Sanford Meisner Playbook Sanford Meisner is one of America’s Master Acting Teachers. Meisner created a series of exercises for actors that he refined for over 50 years at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York. For Meisner,  his approach was designed “to eliminate all intellectuality from the actor’s instrument and to make him a spontaneous responder to where he is, what is happening to him and what is being done to him.”

Meisner Training is an interdependent series of exercises that build upon one another. Meisner students work on a series of progressively complex exercises to develop “moment-to-moment” spontaneity, which allow actors to move beyond the printed script and address the underlying emotional and philosophical themes of the script.

Some people Meisner trained include:  James Caan, Steve McQueen, Robert Duvall, Gregory Peck, Bob Fosse, Diane Keaton, Peter Falk, Jon Voight, Jeff Goldblum, Grace Kelly, James Doohan, Kim Basinger, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Sandra Bullock, Tom Cruise, James Gandolfini, David Mamet, Arthur Miller and Sydney Pollack.

Our studio and community is growing.  Thank you for being a part of it.
