I was an NYC high school drama teacher for 26 years and was the first drama teacher allowed to direct a high school production of The Producers. I recently published a memoir about my years studying with Stella Adler entitled, ACTING SCHOOL: My Search For Theatrical Training And The People I Met Along The Way: A Memoir.
