Abigail's unique brand of coaching is "The Big Show" from start to finish:
Abigail has been coaching actors for almost a dozen years. She coaches for film, television, and theatre auditions and is well versed in role preparation. On top of coaching contemporary material, she is a Shakespeare, Styles and Classical Text expert, and has extensive experience coaching dialects. In short, Abigail does it all.
Her individualized approach to coaching emphasizes the "story" and finding the truth - in all its many facets - in every situation, and in the way that suits every actor. This unique technique has made Abigail one of the mostly highly sought after artists and coaches working today. She calls her method: THE BIG SHOW. The Big Show is about performing thoroughly and thoughtfully, but also with fun, freedom, and ease. The Big Show is about each actor, with Abigail's assistance, choosing the story to tell and having the facility to do so. It starts before the actor walks into the audition room or onto the stage - and doesn't end until the Casting Director's door is closed or the last exit is done. Therefore, thorough preparation includes the kibbitzing and self-promotion that surround the work. There's no question that the logic of the scene needs to be in order, a narrative needs to be established to navigate the scene, character choices need to be made, and one MUST have a reliable "moment before," but acting an audition is much more than just the acting.
Auditions: you have to do them, so you might as well prepare for them!
