Meisner Acting


Sanford Meisner's perspective on training frees the actor up to experience a more authentic - seemingly improvisational - approach to even the most challenging of scenes.

Sanford Meisner, Stella Adler and Lee Strasberg were all members of the New York based Group Theatre collective of the 1930's, established to develop the ideas of Konstantin Stanislavsky.

All three fundamentally changed the course of acting for both stage and screen, and especially in recent decades, Meisner's own unique approach has gained momentum in addressing the most fundamental questions with which actors often struggle.

The key to Meisner's approach is to be found in his phrase, "the reality of doing", and the compelling quality that comes from an actor 'really' doing something on stage or screen, as opposed to merely pretending.
