Drawing on over 40 years as a working actor and teacher, Cliff strengthens the actor’s existing craft while introducing new tools for growth.
Originally from New York, Cliff graduated cum laude with a BA in Theatre from Brooklyn College, completed the two year acting program at the Circle in the Square Professional Workshop on Broadway and studied under master acting teacher Michael Howard. A wide range of teaching approaches provides Cliff with the foundation to work well with diverse groups of acting students. Cliff’s focus on “being truthful under imaginary circumstances” led to an invitation into Off Broadway’s Circle Rep Lab Company which became his artistic home for several years. Cliff has coached privately as well as taught for many organizations including Theatre for Young Audiences, Tony Randall’s National Actors Theatre on Broadway, Laura Henry Studios, and New York Film Academy. He continues to work in film, television, commercials and theatre and brings that insight into the classroom.
Cliff is delighted to open his own studio and share his unique experience.
