The Method is simply what all actors have done when acting well!
Spoken years ago by Lee Strasberg, these words resonate even more powerfully today.
Three generations of American actors – from Marilyn Monroe and James Dean to Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro to Alec Baldwin and Angelina Jolie – have studied Lee Strasberg’s Method Acting and emerged as major talents. The Institute’s classes challenge you, the actor, to work on yourself as a creative artist and, at the same time, work on the role – to leave behind conventional and clichéd expressions and find your own unique voice.
At Strasberg you are taught to invoke your own sense of truth in every role and stress the ways in which personal experience can fire the imagination.
This is the Strasberg difference. This is the spark that turns an accomplished technician into an inspired artist.
This is what makes an actor trained at The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute an actor trained for success.
