“The Meisner Technique is one of the most important taught to contemporary actors, not only at the legendary Neighborhood Playhouse, but also by James Price, a protégé of Sanford Meisner and a Playhouse graduate, at the studio Mr. Price founded and runs, The Acting Studio - New York, one of the most excellent schools in New York City.”

From the Director
-Welcome to the Studio
Welcome to the Studio

 I wanted to create a place where actors not only could study acting but one where they could also gain invaluable, practical experience by actually doing it in performance.  Since its inception, the studio has provided students with the finest professional actor training they need to develop themselves into first-rate craftsmen.
