Michael Chekhov NYC
“The essence of our profession… is to give. What is it that we in the theater give? … We give our body, voice, feelings, will, imagination – we give a form of pulsating art to life itself; we give it to our characters and we give it to our audiences. Nothing, absolutely nothing remains for us save the pleasure of having given pleasure. And yet it is only by this miraculous process that our love grows and our talent is fulfilled and replenished.”
— Michael Chekhov

"Seek him out, wherever he is teaching or performing.
He is my most brilliant pupil!"
