StrasbergTALKS in NYC

StrasbergTALKS is a lecture and workshop series designed to provide students with inspired knowledge of The Method, its application in a professional setting, as well as insights into the professional demands of the industry. Guests range from actors and alumni to directors, writers, agents, and casting directors. The focus is always to provide a new perspective on the work, exposure to role models with similar trajectories, and anecdotal experiences navigating the training. These lectures are a seminal part of the actor training model here at Strasberg, and students should make themselves available to attend when possible.
