Character Main Image

Description

What do Jessica Chastain, Viola Davis, Patti LuPone and Adam Driver have in common? They are but a few of the extraordinary actors who have studied under the renowned acting teacher Moni Yakim at Juilliard, America's greatest performing arts school.

Creating a Character: The Moni Yakim Legacy takes us inside the drama classes where Moni and his wife Mina pour their love and passion into preparing the next generation of actors for the spotlight. Insightful interviews with luminaries including Laura Linney, Anthony Mackie, and Kevin Kline provide the context in the creation of this unique and inspiring portrait of the master teacher - the sole remaining founder of Juilliard’s legendary Drama Division.
