ACTING AT ITS BEST. A MUST ATTEND WORKSHOP – Nina Mashhouri (London based teacher/actor)

Lisa is a marvel at what she does and what she doesn’t know about the business in L.A., Neil Armstrong wouldn’t know about the moon. I found it to be a great insight into the business and she really opens your mind up to auditioning processes. When working in scenes with Lisa she really gives you another approach and another way of thinking that you would never have thought imagined in playing with any kind of scene. She is a world of knowledge and her workshops are great fun and she is a ball of laughs to work with. If she is in town again, hit her up. Lisa’ s class is worth every minute. – Lorcan O’Neill (Berlin actor/dancer)
