Deb Jackel- Director for Ladies in Waiting

Deb Jackel is thrilled to be directing this fun and clever production written by her favorite playwright! 🙂 She is so grateful to the cast for all their hard work and dedication. Deb has been teaching Meisner-based acting, audition, and cold reading technique at the William Esper Studio since 2000. She is the 2011 Winner of the Backstage Readers’ Choice Awards for both Favorite Audition Technique Teacher and Favorite Cold Reading Teacher. She has led audition workshops at Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts, NYU Tisch School of the Arts’ Meisner Studio and throughout New York City. In 2010, Deb co-created “The Empowerment Weekend for Actors” with Alaine Alldaffer (casting director, Playwrights Horizons), an intensive weekend workshop devoted to the psychological and spiritual approach to the art and business of acting and auditioning.
