“He who masters Chekhov masters all of modern realism.” - Stella Adler
In accordance with Stella Adler’s words, the Stella Adler Studio has created an advanced-level intensive which endeavors to illuminate modern realism through the lens of its greatest practitioner. Ms. Adler loved and valued actors versed in modern realism, who could deliver rich text often in opposition to what was intended. The course is centered on Chekhov Scene Study, supplemented by daily physical and vocal work. Offered in the summer only, this is a five-week, 30-hour per week intensive designed for the advanced actor.
“I would recommend this program to any and all of my friends. The practice is best practiced by practicing and the Chekhov Intensive is here to push and pull you, stretch and relax you, teach and learn from you. Finding your truth is what this program is all about. The last thing you want to hear in scene study is, “I don’t believe you.” Or, “Phony.” If you’re interested in really looking at yourself and humanity, this program may interest you a great deal.” – Former Student
