The list compiled is to benefit actors. They are resources that I have come across that I would recommend to any actor looking for guidance. Aside from The Broadway Warm-Up, I have no business affiliation with these suggestions and don’t stand to profit from making a recommendation . They have simply proven themselves to be note worthy and consistent over time and I’m passing that information along:
Rob McCaskill www.mccaskillstudio.com
I send anyone I can to Rob. He has a way of working with actors that gets right to the heart of where they want to be working from. Whether it’s for theatre, film or TV Rob is a fantastic coach and teacher for actors working at every level.
