As the only acting school in the world that teaches Lee Strasberg’s work in its consummate form, The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute® is the home for all actors seeking to delve into Method Acting and its tradition of training some of the world’s most brilliant and truthful actors.
At our International Workshops, actors learn to express powerful emotions and are encouraged to leave behind conventional, superficial, and clichéd expressions in search of their own unique artistic voices. We partner with producers from all over the world to bring Lee Strasberg’s teachings to dedicated actors.
Our AlumniOur alumni have found incredible success in the fields of Film, Television, & Stage. Of the many students who called Lee Strasberg their teacher, or the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute their home, they all honor his legacy with their incredible work and talent.
“What separates the Lee Strasberg Institute from the usual impression one gets from a ‘conservatory,’ is its impact on the maturing artist. The Institute gives young talent the tools not only to be a great actor in the present, but to evolve and adapt until the ‘Method’ becomes second nature. When you can apply what you learned five, ten or twenty years ago, into your living craft, then you can appreciate how successful your training was. This is the type of training that the Institute offers.”
