"The Acting in New Plays workshop gives actors and playwrights an opportunity to find out where each one coming from - how we work, both collaboratively and individually, and how we learn from each other."

"Immediately after working with Scott, my work and my career was taken to another level. Scott's extensive background as an actor truly informs how he communicates to his students. His clear direction and his sense of empathy guide you to find the tools to really connect you to your character. With Scott’s broad knowledge of plays he offers you material that challenges you, while also honing your abilities. In class, I have cracked inhibitions and developed a real confidence that I certainly didn't have before."

"I found The Freeman Studio a year out of acting school, quite lost and deflated by the realities of forging a sustainable acting career. Scott, as he is with all of his students, was immediately encouraging and prescriptive. He inspired me to continue and constantly reminds me of why I love what I do. He understands that a creative outlet between jobs is essential to an actors success. His approach is grounding and deep while also being practical to the business side. With so many classes out there, the space is unique in that it puts the actors' needs before anything else. Scott is constantly creating programming to connect actors with industry professionals, but it's focus is always how to wholly benefit and empower the actor first. Each class, workshop, and coaching session I've had access to through the studio have been invaluable to my career and well-being. It's been extremely special to find such a rich community in New York City where the quality is high and one is constantly challenged, in a loving manner. All I have to say is, thank you!"

"Instinct, intellect, heart. How to integrate those three components of acting was the core of what I took from Scott's class. Always practical, never dogmatic, his presence is serene, methodical, and intuitive. He is an ideal teacher for smart actors looking to get out of their heads and into their hearts."

"An atmosphere of trust and respect. A place of learning and nurturing. This is what Scott has created for actors at the Freeman Studio. I’m fortunate to be invited from London to be part of it."
