In honor of William Esper

William Esper (founder of the William Esper Studio in New York) passed away this weekend. This artistic genius was a mentor to Joanne Baron and a huge influence on her work and the Baron Brown Studio. Our thoughts and prayers and with Bill’s family and the Esper Studio. He will be missed.


‘Be Penetrated by all that you Fear’ Article by Lisa Milillo


It’s so hard to be rejected, to wait for something to happen, to feel motivated, to take action.  There are areas of your life that you must look at.  What is worse than failing… worse, is regret. 

I have no interest in ever being “fearless,“ for that is not what makes us great.

Ethics in Acting

by Baron Brown Meisner Senior Teacher, Tom Patton

Unless you’re living in a cave somewhere, it’s impossible not to know about the ethical scandals that are erupting all throughout the entertainment industry. Never, in the over thirty years I have been involved with the dramatic arts, has there ever been such an unearthing of behind-the-scenes inappropriateness as what we are witnessing today.
