Emerson grad, John Ennis joined me for LSQC105. An accomplished actor, John spent several years on HBO’s “Mr. Show” as well as soo much more to build an impressive resume. John is also an acting coach and instructor. He has been teaching for over twenty years. His passion is clear as we talked about working with young actors, his philosophy for working with them, the adjustment he’s made to a “Zoom” world and how he has used it to his advantage. John’s dedication and love for the craft comes through as he told us about working with his own kids, coaching his daughter, and “The Yard”, the LA theater he founded and runs. John explained what “The Yard” continues to do during the pandemic to keep putting up shows. John loves what he does and has made it a lifelong commitment. It’s one of the reasons I sent my daughter to study with him. We also spoke about the importance of arts for everyone. The power it has on a child at an early age. the confidence they get from a putting themselves out there. Arts, artists, the artistic passion is an endangered thing right now. It’s our job as artists to find a way, ANY way, to adapt to this covid world and bring that to everyone. especially now, in these unpredictable times.
