Go One-on-One with Deb
Winner of the 2011 Backstage Readers’ Choice Awards for both “Favorite Audition Technique Teacher” and “Favorite Cold Reading Teacher,” Deb Jackel has taught Meisner-based acting technique, Audition Technique, and Cold Reading at the William Esper Studio, NYU Tisch, and Rutgers’ Mason Gross School of the Arts (her alma mater, where she now serves on the recruiting team for prospective actors). Deb also brings extensive experience with the business of acting to her teaching, having worked as a talent agent in NYC before beginning her teaching career.
Deb LOVES actors and is fiercely committed to and passionate about giving them the tools and experience they need to do their best work and enjoy the process. She doesn’t believe that one size fits all when working with actors. She knows that every actor is a unique artist and individual, each with their own psychological and artistic strengths and struggles. Additionally, every piece of material is different and where that actor is “at” on any given day may be different, so she takes all these variables into account and that determines the kind of session she has with the actor. Essentially, she can tailor her coaching to support every actor’s growth, no matter what they hope to focus on. Her goal is for the actor to leave a coaching feeling positive and prepared.
