The mask comes off! Set during the Frank Rizzo campaign for mayor of Philadelphia and the dawn of Gay Pride, and inspired by the true story of Dr. John E. Fryer, this world premiere drama by New York-based playwright/psychiatrist Guy Fredrick Glass tackles the controversial subject of gay conversion therapy in a tale of love, liberation and opera.

MEL SHAPIRO ACTING WORKSHOP
I'm interested in working with professional actors who want to work on material they normally can't get to and characters they normally don't get to play. I'm also interested in how the actor works and ways that work method can be enhanced or re-thought. I also know that techniques for not only exploring oneself, but exploring the text and finding the character are vital. And finally, how do you research and what preparation do you use to come into the scene?
I'd like to work with a limited group of people, who might form into a working ensemble over time. Acceptance into the class will be based on an interview and audition. The audition should be a monologue 2 minutes long from a major play. Please have at least 3 other pieces under you belt in case we want to explore those. And please do not have yourself coached.
Mel has received the Tony, Obie, New York Drama Critics and Drama Desk awards. Teaching includes: Founding member, Acting Program, Tisch School, NYU; Head of Drama, Carnegie Mellon University; and presently Distinguished Professor Emeritus, UCLA
MG STUDIO CLASSES
The MG Studio is here to help you discover your method. There is no ONE WAY to work well. Good work requires you to master certain skills: the ability to analyze a script from an actor’s standpoint; a proficiency at asking the questions that will take you from idea to action; the ability to use your body, voice, emotions and intellect to express yourself fully and honestly.
The goal of the studio is to take you out of your head and put you in your body - to produce an actor that is grounded,open and expressive. The most important skill that we work on at the studio is learning how to communicate you the human as opposed to you the actor.
The group works in a collaborative environment that is supportive and challenging. The interview process for entrance to the studio is reciprocal; you need to come prepared to express what you are looking for just as much as I need to find out where you are in your development.
