Reviews

"Those of us now engaged as teaching artists and co-learners have the joyful responsibility to begin reimagining the future of actor training in this country, which includes centering the lived experiences and stories of our students who identify as members of historically marginalized communities. Latinx Actor Training is an invaluable resource for all theater practitioners who seek to bring their full, authentic selves to their creative work. This book inspires a genuine sense of hope that, in art as in politics, intentionally making space for diverse voices to lead the conversation will result in greater liberation for all of us."

Walton Wilson, Professor in the Practice, Acting Program David Geffen School of Drama at Yale

"I wish I'd had a resource like this to ground me and guide me. If we want a robust field full of voces artísticas in all their multifangled complexity, essays like these will help pave the way."

Quiara Alegría Hudes, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and writer of In the Heights
