One of the most important reasons anyone pursues a career in theatre is because they had a teacher that inspired them. Through tough love, intense compassion, or a combination of the two, that one person can be the spark for an artist to believe in themselves, their voice and their abilities.
This month, we’re collaborating with a new online training site called PassDoor. Founded by Broadway ensemblists, they’re connected seasoned performers with every socio-economic and geographic corner of the world, so that any striving artist can access the training and mentorship they need. We asked PassDoor instructors to share the stories of their favorite teachers – the ones that inspired them to hone their craft and eventually make it to Broadway.
