This newsletter has been long in coming. But, I have been so involved that it is only now that I can tell you that the studio in New York is moving into a new space on March 1st, 2013. We will be in the same building at 555 8th Avenue, but in a new studio, 2310. Aside from the great views, the studio/theater will be equipped with a movable floor, so that the studio can be polyvalent, with the stage in several places, and the seating rearranged. We will have real theater lights, perhaps not all at once, but we will be able to present productions with a more professional look. Though, the space is not bigger than it was, holding up to about 30-35 places, it will be quieter, and more beautiful. There will be an additional space for small exhibitions of my wife's painting, which can also be used for meetings, rehearsals, additional dressing room space when needed, and as a waiting space for audience, casting calls, small productions, readings, etc. I will be renting the two spaces, individually and together, for events such as these. For information about rentals, contact JSStudios Rentals. There is a kitchen/geen room area. We share the floor with one other business, so that we are in a place that is much quieter than it was in 403. Of course, the move is happening and I am traveling. I am in Paris now, where the two week intensive stage is full. For places in June, from June 10-21, Monday-Friday, 10:30-4 contact Catherine Mongodin (Paris). I go to Madrid for a two week cursillo beginning February 18-March 1, 2013. There may be a few spaces available, contact Nacho Aldeguer (Madrid) for this cursillo, or for September 9-20, 2013. I go to Milan from March 4-15. That is full, but if you want information, contact Milan. I hope to teach for a week in late August,26-30, 2013, near Venice, in the country. If you are interested, contact Giovanni Morassutti. I will also be teaching in Murcia from June 24th-July 5. I believe it is full, but you can contact Murcia.
I begin the Spring 10 week session in New York on Wednesday March 20-Sunday June 2nd, 2013. I am in the process of organizing now, and very excited to begin in the new space. If you are interested, contact John Strasberg. I will be organizing the Summer Intensive Workshop soon. It will be from July 8-19, 2013, 10 days, 12 actors, 2 scenes, $1680.00. Contact me at John Strasberg. As you may know, I had taught several Intensive Workshops in Europe this past year. I will not be doing that, again, except in Paris and Montreal, though I do not know that I will be able to do another in Montreal this year..

If you haven't done so already, you can friend John Strasberg Studios on Facebook. I try to announce things there more often than I send newsletters.
I feel that there is so much more to say, but let me hope that I will be seeing you somewhere. I wish you well. Once the studio is ready, we will be putting pictures on the website.
