Jeffrey Weissman's excellent instructional technique, focus, and keen observation of each individual's particular acting skills are a few of the many reasons I choose to work with him again and again.  I asked him to take me out of my comfort zone and he certainly did.  Through his teachings, I always learn more about myself as an actor, hone my performing skills, and always have a blast.  Good vibe.  Good fun.

I had my most challenging acting class yet last night. I didn't relate at all with my interpretation of the character, so when I tried to go there, it felt fake. But once I let go and trusted what my teacher was saying, that monologue felt so, so different. I don't think I've literally had that many tears on my face in an acting class before. This is what I signed up for,  I'm very grateful for the challenge.

I highly recommend this workshop with Jeffrey Weissman for actors / improvisors, learning so much and it's been a blast playing with some amazing actors. Jeffrey is hilarious and insightful and knows exactly how to nudge us into our best performances. definitely connecting with fellow actors more as well as getting better at cold-reading and memorizing scripts ...and through this class i've finally organized and had printed my head shot as well as resume!

 Jeffrey has a way of personally connecting with each actor to give them exactly the coaching they need to move forward with their craft. I highly recommend Jeffrey's workshop!
