“If you want to book commercials and a commercial agent, this class is a must!  I’ve learned so much,  it’s incredible.  I am ready to go out and knock ’em dead at auditions.”   

nThis six-session workshop provides each student, whether new to the business or a seasoned actor, with a set of skills that takes the guesswork out of the commercial audition process. Each student’s work is taped and they receive a copy of their work to study at home. The class is designed to make sure you do your best work at the audition, not on the subway on your way home!

Sometimes you really can tell. And I will tell you that T. Schreiber’s production of George Bernard Shaw’s  You Never Can Tell is an utterly charming night at the theater. -Bess Rowan,Off-Off Onlinenn”A charming, delightful and first-rate revival of Shaw’s seaside comedy, appropriate for the entire family.” -Alan J. Miller,Theatre is Easy

n

“T. Schreiber Studio concludes its 41st season with this production, and as ever the work is sparkling, clear, and nourishing. This is the perfect comedy to usher in the long-awaited summer here in NYC.”n-Martin Denton, nytheatre nn”The banter is witty and the comedy is drawing room, but it is the actors’ charisma and timing that keeps one engaged.”n-Bess Rowan, Off-Off Online

n

“In fact, if you don’t count the number of seats in the audience, you’ll be convinced that you’re attending a major off Broadway production. The sets and costumes are lush, worthy of a full blown commercial production, and the acting and directing are as good as it gets.”n-Alan J. Miller,Theatre is Easy nn”It’s a very funny play, and very smart…it’s thoroughly modern and no less pertinent than it was when it was written.”n-Martin Denton, nytheatre

TS Tribute to Lanford Mentioned in NYIT’s Memorial Article

Excerpts from Shay Gine’s article, Safe Home, Lanford Wilson on NYITawards.com nnWilson often portrayed a romantic and patriotic, yet mournful view of the American dream. “No playwright writes with a better ear, compassion, understanding, and clarity about the American search for identity and acceptance than Lanford Wilson” says Terry Schreiber.nnWilson was very generous when it came to sharing his talent and knowledge. From 2004 to 2007 he served as a lecturer at Houston University mentoring theatre students. He attended several productions at the T. Schreiber Studios and always took the time to discuss his plays with the students and spend time with them afterward. “He was so generous to our actors with his time and gave them unforgettable insight into his characters and plays,” says Schreiber.nnClick Here for the Full Article

Memorial Celebration of the Life and Works of Lanford Wilson

Terry was asked by Marshall Mason to speak at the Memorial Celebration of the Life and Works of Lanford Wilson on May 16th at the Lyceum Theater here in NY. Below is a transcript of his speech. nnOne of the great qualities of Lanford Wilson was his generosity.  That same generosity manifested itself in all his plays with compassion for humanity equal to that of Chekhov or Tennessee Williams.nnI first encountered Lanford Wilson in the 1970’s when we did Lemon Sky.  I asked if he would come in and read it for the cast so they could hear the rhythms from his own mouth.  He said, “yes, I would consider doing that but it’s a very personal play and I might hyperventilate and have to lie down on the floor.”  I assured him that if this was the case, we would give him all the floor space that he needed.  The reading went extremely well and was of tremendous value to all of us.  And Lanford did not hyperventilate.  Afterwards, he and I went out for more than several glasses of red wine and closed the bar at 4 a.m.  We had discussed just about everything, including his love of the NY Mets- which really demonstrated his compassion.n

Lanford with Terry, Peter, and the cast of Fifth of July.

nOver the years, we did a lot of Lanford’s one-acts and a production of Hot L Baltimore.  But focusing on the last couple of years, we did Fifth of July in which Lanford was willing to come in and spend time talking to the cast and telling his wonderful stories.  He was my guest on opening night and turned to me half way through the production and said, “you can do anything of mine- anytime.”  It was a great compliment to Peter Jensen, who directed the play, the cast, and certainly the studio.  There’s nothing greater to me than to hear directly from the playwright that we served his play.  It’s a richer reward than even a rave review in the NY Times.  Lanford stayed that evening after the play and spoke to the cast in laudatory terms and even went to the cast party.  This past fall we did Balm in Gilead, again directed by Peter Jensen.  It was to be the last production that Lanford saw of one of his plays.  Again, he stayed and talked to the cast at great lengths about their performances, prefacing his talk by telling us all “you got it exactly right”.nnI’d like to close with some lines from Balm In Gilead.  A character called Darlene is sitting at a table at the end of the play and says “And I don’t know.  Everyone was so tired and so down, and I thought, Christ, aren’t we even moving? You know?”nnWell, Lanford, you’re moving but you’ll be with all of us forever and for generations to come.  I’d prefer to think and feel you just got a little tired.  Thank you, Lanford.
