Michael Strassen

A series of masterclasses in acting through song with director Michael Strassen

Strassen has built a solid reputation staging and directing plays and musicals which are visionary and honest with a particular focus on the works of Stephen Sondheim. Awards include Best Director and Best Production at the Off-West End Awards and his work has taken him from London to Hong Kong to Los Angeles. Strassen was invited to hold a masterclass for the Stephen Sondheim Society and has directed students at Mountview, The Urdang Academy and London School of Musical Theatre.

His particular style is based in authentic performance and the bodies emotional response to tone and its distinct centres of connection.

Michael will be holding full day Masterclasses for a maximum of 12 professional actors.

Each Masterclass will consist of:

  • Reconnecting to what theatre really is
  • Confronting your inauthentic demons
  • Character construction based on narratives and lies we live within
  • The body's emotional memory tonally and what it can open up
  • One to one session
  • Audition realities and being your most authentic self
  • Craft underpinning everything we do
Extremely proud of this production .. amazing cast and the direction by Strassn is genius Dana P.Rowe on 'The Fix'
