The Audition Experience, my next 8-week adults class, begins September 24 at BGB Studio.
We’ll work on technique to inform and elevate your audition preparation, as well as tips and on-camera practice for the waiting room, entering the room, making the strongest most personal choices and implementing casting notes. Along with a bonus of 2 BGB Master Teachers to further explore and expand your Audition Experience, this is the class what will reconnect you to your authentic self, enabling you to audition with a vibrant spontaneity and a deep sense of truth.

Thank you BGB for including me!! You ROCK!
I marvel at how actors can prepare for auditions at the last minute. It takes a certain skill set to disseminate the breakdown, read the script, if offered, prepare the material, and deliver a personalized and thoughtful performance in the audition room or through a self-tape. I’ll offer observations on both.
There is an actor I tape from time to time. She has appeared as a series regular, recurred on several familiar shows, and has tested for countless projects. Whenever I work with her it’s very last minute, usually due the same day, and she has just had the day or evening prior to review the material. She usually tapes it in one shot, and books the role. She’s a one-take wonder. But what does she do?
1. Her confidence is palpable. She’s clear and focused on the performance at hand.
2. There is very clear sense what she wants from the other character, and it is undeniable she will get it.
3. She draws the camera to her read, as if it is listening in on a juicy secret.
During recent casting, the actors I brought back to producers and those who ultimately booked their roles had certain qualities in common. CLICK HERE for specifics on how each of these actors booked the room in one take! – Backstage
Chemistry is the complex emotional or psychological interaction between two people. If this were a romantic article, it would be about love. Instead, we are discussing the astonishing rapport between two actors, and how that connection is achieved in order to book the room, and ultimately, the role.
A chemistry read is an opportunity to read with actors being considered for a role opposite yours, usually lead roles. The main purpose is to see how you instinctively connect and work with the other actor. But before you meet that opportunity, the casting director needs to see that potential.

One year ago these talented Seniors were summoned to their 6th Floor conference room for a meet & greet with me to begin the discussion of how to prepare for the bridge from their amazing theatre program into our film/TV industry. They’ve done GREAT work during their 3 week session Los Angeles Intensive and now NY gets to see what LA already know. I couldn’t be prouder of you all! Break legs and go be amazing!!! xo
