"Meisner Technique has certainly been helpful to me as an actor, particularly for improv.  I had a successful audition where I was given a situation in which I had to improv, and it was helpful to be able to draw on the exercises we’d been doing in class - the repetition and personalization of circumstances.  I was actually cast in this feature length film as a result.
Rich is a very understanding and patient teacher.  He clearly knows the technique and can see when students have been doing the work in between classes.  He’s certainly inspiring.  He encourages us to find ways to be present and truthful by connecting to extreme imaginary circumstances surrounding people that we can actually visualize - people in our lives.  Everything he explained about the technique and the exercises was very clear, and he took great care to make sure that everyone understood what the exercises entail."
