Ten days in. Blown away. I fully expected our ensemble to be a bunch of seriously talented people, and they are. I also hoped that everyone would be nice. Well, they're just lovely. Everyone is genuinely lovely. But what has struck me the most is the honesty and openness of the group. That, plus teaching of the top drawer, is making my time at Steppenwolf compelling and incredible.
It’s a real pleasure to study Meisner technique. Maybe pleasure is not the right word. Well, it is the right word, but pleasure isn't what you feel in class. It's making me a better and more fully aware actor, very quickly. And we don’t really get exposed to that Meisner in the UK so it's just such a great opportunity for me. And Chicago is the home of improv! The improv classes are a riot! Very much loo...
It is with much pride and excitement that I can say: I've been accepted onto the 10wk intensive course at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre this summer! The company is immensely well-thought of (and seriously cool) - the show I saw when I was over in March was an absolute belter.
Yes indeed. The talent that is associated this company is stellar, so I am very, very happy to be getting to study there for ten weeks.
Chi-town: I will see you in June. Promise you'll be warmer than you were in March?
