About T Schreiber Studio

“Schreiber’s studio has a strong connection to the Group Theatre and its forebear, the Moscow Art Theatre- in addition to Strasberg and Meisner, the instructors’ mentors include Stella Adler and Robert Lewis- but other influences range from Uta Hagen to the Cohen brothers.”

Honorary Council & Board

The T. Schreiber Studio established in 1969, is recognized as one of the foremost professional theatre studios in New York City, devoted to the comprehensive training and development of actors in a supportive and collaborative environment.

The Studio’s ongoing classes are integrated into its annual season of productions, allowing the accomplished faculty to guide the growth of each artist from classroom to stage. The faculty of the Studio is composed of working professionals and established artists in theatre, film, and television, under the direction of Terry Schreiber.

“We’re all in search of that golden nugget called the ‘moment of truth’, when any artist stands at one with their creation and finally knows ‘O hey, I really got it right.’ That’s what I want you to feel.”
-Terry Schreiber

“His generosity of spirit and the way he reflected my talent to me was just extraordinary. Through that experience of working with him as my director and as my teacher, I had a sense of myself as a young actress and it made me feel I had something to give as an actress.”
Betty Buckley
