Mission

Herbert believed, and I believe, that it is our obligation to inspire the young, not only with our skills but with an understanding of our shared principles.

—Uta Hagen

HB Studio is a school created by theater artists. We believe in a process of training that is essential to all the performing arts. We offer a rigorous, well-rounded curriculum of study for committed students of all levels where the actor’s unique potential is cultivated and encouraged. We provide a haven for working professionals, free from commercial pressures. Working in partnership with the HB Playwrights Foundation and Theatre, we uphold a standard of performance that can play a significant role in shaping today’s contemporary and classical theater – a standard envisioned by our founder, actor/director Herbert Berghof, and championed by the actor and master teacher Uta Hagen.
