30-min Shakespeare text coaching
I will, via Skype, help you both understand and confidently speak a passage or scene from Shakespeare's plays or Sonnets. Elements of comprehension and effective delivery include: detailed knowledge of the events leading up to the speech and of the present context in which the speech takes place, identification of the objectives and motivations of the speaker, use of language and logic (i.e., rhetorical schemes and figures) to produce some effect in the listener.
Training & Qualifications
I hold an MFA from the NYU Graduate Acting Program, and have worked as an actor, director, teacher and coach. In addition to studying Shakespeare here in the US, I have also studied abroad in London with old-school RSC actors.
Availability & Preferences
I'm usually free on weekday evenings and weekends.
