One of the highlights of creating the Artists In Action program was doing an interview series with some truly amazing people in the arts and entertainment world, and it's my privilege to be able to share one of those interviews with you right here. I had a wonderful conversation with Suzan Bymel, a founding partner of Management 360 whose clients include Anne Hathaway, Kiefer Sutherland, and Michelle Pfieffer, amongst many others. Suzan helped shape the careers of such award-winning actresses as Reese Witherspoon, Meg Ryan, Julianne Moore, and Marisa Tomei. She's been named to Variety's Women Impact List, as well as The Hollywood Reporter's 100 Most Powerful Women in Entertainment list, and she currently serves on the advisory board of the Global Creative Forum.
Karen Kohlhaas is one of those people in the New York theater world that everyone seems to know. And why not? She's a founding member of the world-renowned Atlantic Theater Company, an esteemed teacher at the Atlantic Acting Schooland of her own monologue and directing workshops, a well-respected stage director, and author of The Monologue Audition: A Practical Guide for Actors. Her latest book, How to Choose a Monologue For Any Audition, is an indispensable guide for the working actor. Outside of being an industry role model, I happen to know that Karen is also one of the most genuine people you will ever meet, both in and out of this business, and it's my absolute pleasure to have her share her experiences with all of you.
