Mission Statement

Herbert believed, and I believe, that it is our obligation to inspire the young, not only with our skills but with an understanding of our shared principles.

--Uta Hagen

HB Studio is a school created by theatre artists. We believe in a process of training that is essential to all the performing arts. We offer a rigorous, well-rounded curriculum of study for committed students of all levels where the actor’s unique potential is cultivated and encouraged. We provide a haven for working professionals, free from commercial pressures. Working in partnership with the HB Playwrights Foundation and Theatre, we uphold a standard of performance that can play a significant role in shaping today’s contemporary and classical theatre - a standard envisioned by our founder, actor/director Herbert Berghof, and championed by the actor and master teacher Uta Hagen.

Description

Founded by Viennese actor/director Herbert Berghof in 1945, HB is one of the original New York acting studios. We are a nonprofit organization that supports vigorous, lifelong practice in the theatre arts, based on a solid foundation of practical training. We set expectations, witness the level of commitment, and amplify the choices developing artists make for and against their own talents, balancing encouragement with demand so each may continue to stretch and grow. HB is open to any person with a serious interest in the theatre and its related disciplines. Our students, faculty, and alumni form a vibrant community of actors, playwrights, and directors.
