Performance: TBD

We are pleased to announce that Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actor Jeffrey Tambor (“The Larry Sanders Show,” “Arrested Development,” “Transparent”) is bringing his 6-week creative workshop to The Playhouse! Over the past four decades, Tambor has been an inspiration both on and off screen, bringing many iconic characters to life while cultivating a uniquely personal approach to his craft. Tambor’s workshop guides up-and-coming actors, writers, and directors through the art of the personal monologue in a hands-on exploration of their process. He has taught acting classes on the West Coast and workshops at SXSW for many years. This empowering class focuses on identifying and conquering the fears that keep us from trusting our own creative voices.

At the end of the 6 weeks there will be a performance, starring some of the students on the stage of The Ridgefield Playhouse – showcasing the monologues they have worked on. Students can walk away with a five-minute monologue in their back pocket – perfect for an audition – as they move on with more courage, confidence and creativity in their careers.

Jeffrey Tambor has created some of the most iconic characters in television history from The Larry Sanders Show’s Hank Kingsley to Arrested Development’s George and Oscar Bluth to Transparent’s Maura Ffefferman. Throughout his career, Tambor has developed a unique teaching style based on his own artistic philosophy. He is co-owner of Skylight Bookstore in Los Angeles and also is the author of his popular memoir Are You Anybody. He created and hosts the podcast “Acting Schmacting.”
