“Like 4 years of college packed into one hour!” T.H.

“Just wanted to let you know, they were so impressed by my audition for Juliet they called me an hour afterward to offer me the role! The director (a Broadway vet) said I was ‘head and shoulders above the rest.’ I couldn't have done it without you!!! Thank you so much.”  K. H.

“Ron, Good news: I got hired as Malvolio... my first Equity contract.  Thank you so much for your help.”  A. C.

“I'm in London.  I just did a 4-day course at the Poor School.  They offered me today a place in their two-year training beginning next fall.  They seemed especially pleased with my Shakespeare piece, and I must credit your teaching and coaching and thank you.”  R. L.

“I got the part in A Comedy of Errors.  Thanks again for your help.”  J. A.

“I got the part of the Duchess in both Richard II & Richard III.... Thanks for your advice piecing the monologues together. You did a much better job than I did.” K. H.

“Hi Ron. I’m the one that came to you for help with the Queen Margaret monologue from Richard III .  After your direction, explanation and teaching skill, I want to tell you that I went to the class and for the first time ACED it.  Thank you soooo much.” D. M.

“Your direction was so valuable that BEFORE I begin working on ANY monologue again, (Shakespeare Or Contemporary) I would wish to spend a week doing exactly what we did with Othello/Iago. Our work in this preparation has made the actual monologue performance effortless. 

Thank you for going along with it all and improvising along the way - all the insights, paraphrasing, analysis/psychological and visceral Into Iago's mind/body that makes me look forward to any audition challenge.”  I. B.

“Thank you again for the time you spent working with me preparing my audition. I felt that the work we did was very beneficial.  I felt so much more relaxed in my audition and felt that I was successful in doing many of the things we worked on. I would love to work with you some more in the future.”  N. N.
