Professional 6 Week Summer Acting Program

“Prior to my experience at The Barrow Group, I spent years forcing tears, laughs, and understanding. After attending The Barrow Group, my experience changed drastically. I attribute my entire career to what I learned there, which is essentially: how to be more myself.”
Lola Kirke, “Mozart in the Jungle”, 6-week program graduate
