“Andrew and Sommer are gifted and sensitive theatre artists who have a very personal devotion to the Meisner Approach and to helping actors grow. They are going to make a big difference in the lives of the actors with whom they work. With their contribution the Chicago theatre community will simply be a better place.” – Larry Silverberg, Author of The Sanford Meisner Approach

“Green Shirt Studio is wonderful; I cannot recommend them highly enough. I took one of these free intro workshops and was immediately hooked. I’m now in their Level 3 Meisner class and I wouldn’t change any of it for the world. I’ve discovered so much in myself that I never knew was there. I’m not just a better actor as a result; I’m a happier human.” – Margeaux T., GSS student

“I’d heard warnings about Meisner (though I didn’t buy into the hype) but Andrew and Sommer led classes in a safe, thoughtful and provocative manner. They made me think about acting in ways I had never imagined. It was a great experience, I highly recommend Green Shirt Studio.” – Ann M., GSS student

“For me, one of the hardest parts of improv is staying in the moment and responding to what’s right in front of me, instead of my own ideas. The Meisner work I’ve done with Andrew and Sommer is definitely helping me hit that place more often.” – Lisa S., GSS student

“Green Shirt’s specific and detailed approach to Meisner’s Repetition is the best in-the-moment training I’ve ever come across.” – Ernie G., GSS student

“My scene preperation and emotional development dramatically improved under the direction of Andrew and Sommer; they are actors with heart who understand how to bring out the best in you through the Meisner method.” – Tim T., GSS student
