LEARN ABOUT JRS
Our studio is a community that focuses on creating the constitution of a working actor.
WHAT THEY SAY
I've taken a lot of acting classes. Some have been good, others not so good. But no class has helped me more in my growth as an actor...
Series Reg on FRESH OFF THE BOAT, Lead in THE INTERVIEW
What I find so unique about JRS and in particular John, is his ability to meet you exactly where you're at on your path, and make you better.
Series Regular on HOUSE OF CARDS
In JRS classes I found a refuge from the initial loneliness and a creative space where I was free to make mistakes and be unbridledly creative.
Series Regular on FEAR THE WALKING DEAD
John is an amazing teacher. I cannot recommend him enough. He was one of the most significant influences on my career as an actress...
Actor (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 4, PRECIOUS, DEJA VU)
I found John and his studio at the lowest point in my career. I was going nowhere fast, career-wise, and my own self worth had been obliterated by the industry.
Actor (Series Regular on THE 100, Emmy-nominated Role on GENERAL HOSPITAL)
John completely changed the way I approach auditions...
Series Regular on THE WALKING DEAD
"John pushed me to strip the b.s. that often comes with years of training and learn to trust that I am truly interesting and exciting enough to leave it at that...."
