Dan has the wonderful ability to get actors to trust their instincts and to surrender to the organic truth of the moment. This is one of the qualities that make Dan such a fine acting teacher. It also serves to make every show he directs exciting, spontaneous and riveting. He has the unfailing ability to seek and find an actor's hidden strengths and reserves of talent; assets the actor might not even know he or she has. Dan brings out the best in everyone he teaches and directs. We have worked together on a number of occasions, and I look forward to the next time. Dan LaMorte is a man of the theater and a pleasure to work with. He has terrific vision, boundless energy and would be a welcome addition to any theatrical endeavor.
