An Extraordinary Man of the Theater – An Extraordinary Human Being

    I am so privileged to be a student of this man, Wynn Handman: founder of The American Place Theater, creator of Literature to Life, and director, coach, trainer, and mentor to some of the finest actors we will ever be lucky enough to see. As anyone who studies with Wynn will tell you, stepping into his studio means stepping into a world where commitment, integrity, and devotion to the work are the very ground you walk on, and egos or anyone searching for a quit hit to their resume find no air to breathe. Truthfully I’ve learned about so much more than acting in Wynn’s class, but how can you fail to learn from a man who guides his entire life by the question, “What is needed here?”
