A memorial for late acting teacher William Esper, who died January 26 at age 86, will be held May 17 at 1 PM at Broadway's Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.

Esper was founder of the William Esper Studio in New York City, where he trained such actors as Amy Schumer, Sam Rockwell, Jennifer Beals, Kristin Davis, Peter Gallagher, Jeff Goldblum, Christine Lahti, Gretchen Mol, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kathy Bates, Michele Shay, Paul Sorvino, Harold Perrineau, Patricia Wettig, Timothy Olyphant, Tonya Pinkins, and Aaron Eckhart.

The William Esper Studio will now be led by Suzanne Esper, who taught alongside Esper at the studio for 40 years. She oversees an acting faculty personally trained by Esper to teach his work based in the Meisner Technique.
