“If you are like me, and you like to get the feeling, when watching a play or film or whatever, not that the actor is performing for you, but that you are being let in on a secret viewing of someone’s most private life…if you want to know what it feels like to do that in your work…then Seth Barrish is your guy. And moreover, what he teaches is simple, without ego.”
— Jennifer Landon, Three-time Emmy winner
