"You give us scenes that continually challenge us to dig deeper, knowing we are capable of something greater than we allow ourselves to believe."
"You helped me knock down walls and discover a part of me I knew was there but inaccessible before you allowed me to find to it. You give everyone a safe place to discover who we are as people and as artists."
"I go to the most inspiring acting class in the world. And I have an incredible pool of support. And I'm surrounded by wildly brave artists."
