Inside the Actors Studio

The Craft Seminars
From the beginning, all students participate in Craft Seminars known to the world as Inside the Actors Studio, hosted by James Lipton, in which the most accomplished members of the Actors Studio and the professional community share their knowledge and experiences.

The Bravo television series Inside the Actors Studio, honored with 13 consecutive Emmy nominations in its 14 years, is presented live on the stage of Pace’s Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts, and subsequently on television screens in 80 million homes across America and 125 countries around the world, creating the definitive theater and film archive of our time.

More than 200 artists have shared their lives and careers on the Inside the Actors Studio stage, in a two-to three-hour interview conducted by James Lipton, and in the intimate classroom that follows, as the series’ guests pass the torch of their experience to our MFA candidates.
