Alex Brightman, the Tony Award-nominated star of School of Rock—The Musical, is hosting a “Tough Love” acting seminar on December 11 in New York City, a class he describes as “making fans, spinning plates, kicking ass.”
The 90-minute seminar will be held 6-7:30 PM at the Ripley Grier Studios, 520 Eighth Avenue in Manhattan. Admission is $50, and sign-ups are being offered only through the email AlexTeachesStuff@gmail.com.
Brightman is promising, “No singing. No acting. Just talking. But like, really talking. I’ve taught a lot of people of all types, ages, sizes, and sensibilities. I get asked the same questions all the time about acting, auditioning, confidence, and how to spin a thousand plates at once. I also hear a lot of nonsense floating around about ‘the business’ and I would love to clear up, debunk, and clarify some things once and for all. There is no cap to how much we can learn, and I feel compelled to share what I have learned over the last dozen years working as a professional actor, writer, and overall plate spinner. Join me for an hour and a half and I promise you’ll leave refreshed, recharged, and reinvigorated to take bigger steps in your career.”
Before he was cast in the starring role in School of Rock, Brightman appeared in supporting roles of Broadway productions Big Fish, Matilda The Musical, and Wicked (as a Boq replacement).
