BILL IRWIN & MICHAEL CERVERIS: Storytelling and the Body & The Art of the Audition

During The New School for Dramas three-week Summer Music Theater Immersion Experience, some of Broadways biggest stars lead master classes and impart their experience and knowledge to aspiring musical theater performers.

Here, award-winning actor and clown Bill Irwin (Fool Moon, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) shows how to relate story and character through movement. Michael Cerveris (Tony Award winner for Assassins and Tony nominee for Sweeney Todd) works one-on-one with two students on performances of I Could Have Danced All Night and Dear World. Other artists who have given master classes include Wayne Cilento, Judy Kuhn, Donna McKechnie, Denis O'Hare, Michele Pawk, and Christopher Sieber.
