About – NYC Campus



The New York campus is located on Lee Strasberg Way, right in the heart of historic Union Square. Surrounded by off-broadway theatres, universities and vibrant neighborhoods, this campus provides a stimulating environment for artistic and creative work. With easy access to all main subway routes, Broadway theaters, museums, parks, and nightlife are all just a train ride away. There’s no better place to study acting than alongside a vibrant community of Broadway shows, downtown theatre, and a thriving scene of film and television production – all in the cultural capital of the world.

Hosting a wide variety of classes, workshops and programs, including a Bachelor of Fine Arts partnership with New York University, the New York Campus offers a broad range of programs designed specifically for actors of all levels pursuing their training in The Method.

The New York school has two theaters and offers a curated season of shows, talks, and events that highlight the incredible interchange of people and art throughout the city. Workshops with the new wave of directors, or field trips to Broadway shows are all part of the extracurricular offerings at the New York Institute.

And just like New York City, our student body is a diverse collection of artists from different backgrounds. The New York campus has hosted students, theatre schools and groups from over 140 different countries which now comprise an alumni network that extends around the globe in all facets of the entertainment industry.

Famous for its red doors, the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York has welcomed an incredible array of artists into its historic building over the past 50 years. Alec Baldwin, John Leguizamo, Claire Danes, Rachel Brosnahan, Lady Gaga, Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson are just a few of the many actors who have called this campus home. Over the door hangs a quote from Lee Strasberg “Through these doors we invite talent in.” We look forward to you taking that first step.

“Through these doors we invite talent in.”

Dear Students and Prospective Students,

As news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, we wanted to take time to reassure our community that The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute is monitoring circumstances on a regular basis. We are committed to the well-being and education of our students, faculty and staff. Following in step as other universities and schools, we have transitioned to holding classes remotely in ways that are meaningful.

The Spring 2020 term will begin on April 20th.

These are unique times worthy of serious thought and implementing measures of caution. We trust that our Community will, as always, join together, to find new ways to collaborate, innovate, and continue doing the work we care so deeply about.

Please be sure to follow us on social media for events and updates during this time where we're all Safer at Home.
