ABOUT ACTING THE SONG
The class is designed for actors, dancers and singers, at all levels of experience and training, who are interested in learning how to express, through song, the action and the meaning of the lyric. You will work in a group, at your own level, in a fully safe and supportive environment. Robin will help you to choose material, to interpret songs, and most importantly to reach your highest potential, as a singer and an actor. Each person will have the opportunity to receive personal one on one instruction every week.
Robin Morse, a longstanding member of the New York theater community, made her professional acting debut at the age of 17 starring opposite Chita Rivera and Donald O’Connor in the Broadway musical “Bring Back Birdie”. Since then she has worked steadily both on and off-Broadway, regionally and in television and film. Her credits include the original Broadway company of John Guare’s Six Degrees of Separation (original cast), the world premiere of Lee Blessing’s Patient A at the Signature Theater Company, the award winning Arena Stage production of Athol Fugard’s My Children! My Africa!, for which she received a Helen Hayes Award nomination for Best Actress, a recurring role on thirtysomething, and several episodes of Law and Order.
Robin has studied the Meisner Technique, both as an actor, with William Esper, and as a teacher with Maggie Flanigan. She began teaching her own classes in 1994, as well as coaching many well-known actors for stage, television and film, such as Lucas Hedges (Moonrise Kingdom and the upcoming film Kill the Messenger with Jeremy Renner), Piper Perabo (Broadway’s Reasons to Be Pretty), Jane Adams (HBO’s Hung), Matt Cavanaugh (Broadway’s 2009 revival of West Side Story), and international recording star Angelique Kidjo.
She has taught for Acting International, a conservatory program based in Paris, and for The Actors Center, under the Artistic leadership of J. Michael Miller. She has also taught both Acting and Singing Performance, for the undergraduate acting programs at New York University and Syracuse University. She currently teaches an ongoing weekly class called Acting the Song, here in New York City, and is also a proud member of The 52nd Street Project, a not for profit community-based arts organization in Hell’s Kitchen.
