Our students rocked in Gypsy!

Posted by Vera Khodasevich in Featured. No Comments

26th September

Gypsy at The Gallery Players opened Saturday, September 17th and we were right there in the audience cheering on our students! We are so proud of the work that they did up there!!

“The small children who play Baby June, Baby Louise, and the other pint-sized vaudeville performers in the opening scenes are absolutely adorable, with remarkable stage presence and surprising skill. They actually made me nervous that after being bowled over by cuteness, I might be disappointed with the adult cast.” – Jon Sobel, Blog Critics

“Of course, I have my favorites; actors who I felt went above and beyond the call of duty to embody their character and entertain the audience. First on the list is the extremely talented and charismatic Jolie Rose Wasserman, who played Baby June. She is a remarkable actress and was a delight to see perform.” … Read More »

Mischief Makers’ inaugural production

Posted by roberta in Featured, News. No Comments

9th August

The Mischief Makers Theatre Company came out of artists’ hunger to create. It all starts with a dream, an idea. An idea to collaborate, to create, to cultivate and ultimately to share. We as teachers spend many hours planting seeds in the minds and hearts of our young students. Year after year we nourish and encourage that seed to grow, and each year we watch the harvest take place as our students step onto the Tantrum Theater stage and perform. But the seed within each of us also needs to be nurtured, and what better place to do it than right here where so much magic takes place.

In an actors’ life you come across many talented people. There are some you are immediately drawn to, maybe because of their talent, or their personality (or perhaps both) and you remember that person … Read More »



Little Men Premiere

Posted by roberta in Featured, News. No Comments

9th August

Last summer, acclaimed director Ira Sachs was working on a new film he co-wrote with Mauricio Zacharias, featuring Oscar nominee Greg Kinnear. They needed an acting studio for an on-location shoot. Oh! And some background actors as well. Who do you think they called?

Over 40 Acting Out students made the cut. What a fun experience it was! The film had its premiere in New York City last week and we were invited.

 

Synopsis: An artsy 13-year-old boy named Jake (Theo Taplitz) moves to gentrifying Brooklyn with his family following the death of his grandfather, where he becomes unlikely friends with an extroverted kid his age named Tony (Michael Barbieri). However, Jake’s parents (Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Ehle) are the landlords of the dress shop run by Tony’s single mom (Paulina Garcia), and their bond is tested when the two families get into a … Read More »



Roberta is named a Power Woman in Business!

26th April

Brooklyn women shone bright on Wednesday, March 16 as 34 of the borough’s successful entrepreneurs, business owners and community leaders were honored at Star Network’s 2016 Power Women in Business Awards and Networking Event. Held at the always extravagant Grand Prospect Hall, the evening’s honorees, exhibitors and guests dined, danced and donated the night away, at an event that spotlighted some extraordinary ladies and the causes they hold dear.

 Among those ladies was our very own Roberta Loew!

Ms. Loew has been the co-owner and creative director for Acting Out, a Brooklyn based acting and vocal performance school for kids and teens, since 2005. In 2010 the business outgrew its location and needed a new venue. When she and her business partner husband were toiling around ideas on where to move the business places like Manhattan had came up and Roberta, who grew up in Bensonhurst Brooklyn … Read More »
