LOS ANGELES THEATRE & FILM PROGRAMS
The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute® seeks to carry out its mission by offering the world’s most comprehensive and authentic acting training in The Method™.
The Los Angeles Acting Programs at The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute were created by Lee Strasberg and are under the artistic supervision of his wife, Anna Strasberg, and his son, Creative Director David Lee Strasberg.
Lee Strasberg designed the classes to offer actors the opportunity to pursue their work systematically and to gain firsthand knowledge of his fundamental concepts. Here, through class work, seminars, exercises, scene work, demonstrations, commentary and discussions, both professional actors and non-professional actors are encouraged to develop their art and themselves.
Comprehensive training is necessary for actors to reach their maximum potential. The Institute offers carefully designed programs, which vary in level and scope, to empower our actors to face every challenge with courage and confidence.
