"He's helped me gain confidence and skills in an audition that no other teacher has given me before or since." 'Bob provided a safe environment where I felt free to be myself and take risks as an actor. Bob is the best!'​ — Julia Udine, Christine in Phantom of the Opera
"Bob pulls away the curtain of the elusive audition. Not only will you have tools to better understand the script in front of you, but will build through your own authenticity, the work that only you can create. He pushes an actor toward the utmost truth, and will enlighten the inner life that every actor brings to the table." — Matthew Ballinger, The Deuce, Limitless, Girls.
