  1. copyright 2010 - Michael Howard Studios

  1. Michael Howard Studios is the country’s premiere professional acting studio for theatre, film, and television.

  2. Founded in 1953 by actor and director Michael Howard, a protege of both Sanford Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse and Lee Strasberg at the Actor’s Studio, it is the longest running, privately-owned acting Studio in New York.  Michael established his Studio grounded in the dramatic innovations of Konstantin Stanislavski.  The Studio has evolved to incorporate many schools of thought and techniques from around the world.  Its core belief is to help actors develop a technique - a method which is truly individual.
