LOVE THIS PLACE!. The Acting Studio has been a great learning environment to develop my acting skills for the past 3 years. I walked away from the Studio Workshop feeling confident and capable as a professional actor. James Price and John Grabowski are amazing teachers who are dedicated, meticulous and provide honest and in-depth critiques of our work. The Acting Studio has an incredible team of instructors who work in the industry and provide students with high quality classes and ongoing workshops. They also have a class schedule offering evening and weekend courses that allow me to take classes and support myself full-time in another career. I think it?s one of the best acting programs in New York City.
I love the Acting Studio Inc..
The Acting Studio, Inc. is THE BEST school in NYC!!
I "studied", if you will, at a couple of NYC acting schools, but I was never satisfied. I always felt something was missing. For that reason, I took a break from acting for a few months. I was so unsatisfied that I was about to quit my pursuit, until I found The Acting Studio Inc. on-line, one random day. I told myself that if The Acting Studio Inc. didn't offer solid training then, I would throw in the towel. I am so happy to say that The Acting Studio Inc. has laid the solid foundation on which I stand today. I went from the Principles Of Acting (Introduction To Meisner class) to the Performance Workshop (the whole acting program) and it's the best decision I have ever made in my acting career thus far. In my opinion, James Price and John Grabowski are the best teachers/coaches in New York and probably in the business. John Grabowski is also a phenomenal director who I've been fortunate enough to work with in several plays. I'm happy to say that thanks to them and the adjunct faculty at the studio, I did not quit acting and I never will. If you want solid training, and a supportive environment to develop and grow as an actor, The Acting Studio inc., is the place for you. It will be one of the best investments you'll make in your acting career.

Amazing Acting Teacher. James Price is a gifted artist, teacher, and human being whose mission in life is sharing his authority and love of acting to each and everyone of his students. His attention and perception are uncanny, and I will never forget him or the time I spent in his classroom.
James Price is Amazing.
James Price-The Acting Studio
I have just finished what has been the most exciting and challenging acting class I have ever taken simultaneously with it being the most fruitful. James Price is without question one of the greatest acting coaches…fostering, nurturing, & challenging each and every student while uniquely ferreting out their strengths and weaknesses, and enhancing them in a way that allowed virtually every one to come out of the class as better actors, technicians, and people as well. From an acting technicians perspective, this is all about the Meisner technique, but James communicates the soul, the needed commitment and the professionalism this craft truly deserves. If you are serious…there is no other school or person to seek out. You may find other schools and other classes but this place defines the reason to be in the industry.

The Acting Studio, Inc. is dedicated equally to the development of craft skills at the highest level through intensive short-term and long-term classes, and to the application of those skills in work presented in open-class forums, group projects and on productions presented for public performance produced in conjunction with Chelsea Repertory Company, its off-off Broadway company performing since 1984.
