Actors Studio Drama School Repertory Season 2014

The Actors Studio Drama School is the only MFA program officially sanctioned and supervised by the legendary Actors Studio. It is the only school that offers the authenticity, continuity and authority of the Stanislavski System and the Method. The curriculum has been designed and supervised by the leadership of the Actors Studio, including the Presidents of the Actors Studio, Ellen Burstyn, Harvey Keitel and Al Pacino. All students -- actors, directors, playwrights -- train side-by-side as actors and participate in the Craft Seminars known to the world as the Bravo Network television series “Inside the Actors Studio,” hosted by James Lipton.

As 1 of the 4 accepted directors in the Actors Studio Drama School 2014 cohort, Kristen directed 4 fully produced pieces, 1 of which satisfied her thesis requirement for the MFA degree.

"Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train" is Kristen’s hybrid directing experiment, combining her love of filmmaking with theatre by integrating multiple projections throughout the piece.
