Twins Talk Theatre

Twins Cynthia Hennon Marino and Stacy Hennon Stone host a weekly podcast talking to the people behind the curtains. Take a trip back stage to learn what it takes to put on a production: design process, music study and execution, paperwork, meetings, management, unions, and all the excitement backstage that the audience doesn’t get to see. Enjoy the show!

046 - Laura Sturm

July 27th, 2018

This week we had the pleasure of talking to Laura Sturm.  An acting and movement couch currently residing on Chicago.  Even though she originally got an accounting degree, she fell in love with theatre and the Meisner Technique.  She feels that her job is to make actor feel safe and comfortable in their own body.  One thing she has them repeat daily is "I HAVE NO APOLOGIES!"  Something we believe will help all of us live a better life of not apologizing for being ourselves.    

If you are in the Chicago area, look her up and stop in for a class.  You can find her schedule on your web site www.laurasturm.com.  And if you can't go in person, she recommends a few books:
 

Sanford Meisner on Acting - Sanford Meisner

The Actor's Art and Craft - William Esper
