Meisner's "point of view repetition" exercise is the foundation of the actor's work. It requires your full attention on the other person, "listening", staying in the moment, working from what you "know", taking the "polite routine" out of your work, working from impulse, stripping away defenses so that you are able to react "fully", and removing all pretense from the work. As in all my workshops, attendees will be given the opportunity to work during the course of the workshop.


Alan Gordon Studio TESTIMONIALS

David Kilgannon When I first began studying the Meisner Technique with Alan towards the end of 2016 I had zero prior acting experience. Didn't have acting contacts and pretty much felt like an imposter. Studying with Alan, I have progressed through several Meisner stages and at this point I have seen evidence that the technique will work even for me. Alan gives pointed feedback in a manner that is supportive and allows for greater risk-taking and subsequent learning. My experience has been fantastic and I highly recommend studying with him...

Alan Gordon Studio TESTIMONIALS

Ivan Goris What can I say that I have not said about Alan Gordon Studio. When I first spoke to Alan about taking his class, the first thing I said was, "I need you to be honest with me and not blow smoke up my ass. I want to be a better actor." His response, "I never resort to false praise. You will always get truthful feedback from me." He never let me down. Alan is an actor's encyclopedia. I mean I'm a guy who grew up in the Projects of NYC, and I didn't know the difference between emoting and living truthfully, and thanks to Alan I know the difference and I rely on the instincts I developed while studying with him...

Michael Barbieri (Movie Review For Spider-Man : Homecoming) The reality is, not every superhero movie needs world-threatening stakes. The main thrust of the story revolves around a series of heists and low-level transactions. By keeping the story of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” relatively low-key — there are no giant lasers shooting into the sky at any point, which feels like a breath of fresh air...

"Of course we want to get paid for what we do. But part of being a good teacher is making myself available outside of the classroom. Sharing knowledge isn't always about dollars a scents. I have a good feel for people that are genuine and those that are looking for freebie. My students are honorable people that never take advantage of my generosity" ~ Alan Gordon

The first question David Kilgannon asked me in his first Meisner class was, "Does everyone get as nervous as I am?" I assured him he was not alone. I recounted my first acting class when I was so nervous I was literally talking to myself on the street. I told David, "you're nervous because you care." Since that day David has grown in leaps and bounds. He "listens" and lets his body do the talking. It is my sincere pleasure to be able to witness his growth from day one.

Enya Mommsen has done such a wonderful job progressing in every stage of the "repetition" exercises. Her fellow students love working with her because they know she is going to respond from her gut at all times. Every time she works she gives the polite routine the heave-ho and that keeps her partners on their toes.

When Jesse Gruberg started with me he learned quickly that the "repetition" exercises are demanding. To his credit Jesse hung in despite the difficulties and little by little he is gaining an understanding of the importance of "listening" and not "trying" to make something happen. He's got moxie and his hard work is paying off as he's beginning to land roles. I'm proud of his accomplishments.

My dear friend and student Lloyd Goodman has lost his fight with cancer. True to form, Lloyd smiled to the end, never losing hope. Lloyd was loved by everyone that had the good fortune to have known him. His passions in life were his family and acting. Lloyd never did anything half-way. He gave all of himself to everything he did. I will always love him and he will always be in my thoughts. I miss him already and I will honor his memory by living my life to the fullest and never back down from a challenge. May my dear friend rest in everlasting peace.
