"Marti (Marti Lyons, Instructor- Script as Score with Marti Lyons) has an inclusive and highly collaborative way of working with actors. I always love her generous spirit and sense of humility, often stating, 'I'm interested to know if XYZ would work here' or 'you are totally on the right track and you illuminated something here that I didn't necessarily see before!' These are the kinds of things you hear Marti Lyons saying in class and it inspires the best, most magical work from actors. She also exposed us to such exciting plays with richly drawn characters and plenty of conflict so watching others' scenes was intense and rewarding. Marti gave us all really great tools!"
