I'm a freelance theater director currently working in NYC and throughout the country. I'm an acting coach, teach directing for the stage and dramaturgy/text analysis for actors, directors, and designers. I have over 15 years of teaching experience at such institutions as Williams, Yale, New School, Columbia, Fordham, and Primary Stages ESPA.

I will focus my classes on auditioning, callbacks, cold reading audition skills, grad school auditions, and text analysis and dramaturgy. I'm also available to coach and consult with aspiring theater directors and public speaking clients. I would be happy to customize my classes to each student's individual needs and goals.

I received my MFA in Directing from Yale School of Drama and my BFA in Acting from the University of the Arts.

About Jackson

As an established theater director and teacher, I am very fortunate to be working continuously in New York and across the country from New York to California and in between. Actors are a part of my daily life as I audition and collaborate with them for a living. I often have new directors as assis

Leah Nicole Raymond
Jackson is a great director/coach. When you are working you can trust that Jackson is fully listening to you as you the actor and you the character. She knows how to push in a way that works for you and will get you where you need to be. I trust Jackson and highly recommend working with her.
Kevin
I had the privilege of studying stage directing with Jackson Gay at Yale. Jackson has a remarkable way of bringing out students' individual artistic and creative sensibilities. In scene workshops, she gives highly practical advice for working with actors to shape an overall dramatic vision. She also reinforces this instruction by relating her own professional experiences, highlighting what has been effective. Her guidance in script analysis is very clear, and showed me how to fully understand characters' dramatic objectives before going into rehearsals with actors.

As well, Jackson incorporated invaluable practical career advice into the class, which is often hard to find. One of her exercises for this was to pair us with another student and have a mock "writer-director" meeting, where the writer was considering hiring the director. This was a really helpful window into the professional process, which has given me an important springboard to communicate my own ideas in the production of new work.

Jackson Gay’s teaching applies across theater disciplines — for instance, my work in theater is primarily as a composer and lyricist. She showed me how to look at the big picture of a play or musical, giving me the insight to write in a way that is dramatically cogent, engaging, and entertaining.
Sheila-Joon
Jackson Gay is masterful at guiding the actor to find their own authentic voice. She has a laser sharp focus imbued with empathy, that simultaneously put me at ease and helped me find my edge, in a way no other director has. More than anything, she helped empower me to make my own bold choices within a vast array of styles, so that my work was informed from a deep and genuine place (rather than an impersonation or a desire to please). I always feel safe to explore my edge with Jackson, but never humored if something isn't working. She's honest. It's rare to find guidance both so kind and so sharp. Jackson Gay understands and loves actors, and that love comes through in her work.

I have worked with Bill as a vocalist for several years, and have always been impressed with his singing voice. Now having studied with him privately, I am even more impressed with his teaching skills—fun, encouraging, and informative, his lessons are not to be missed! Also, very reasonably priced!

I've worked with Bill in multiple capacities since we met. He has an incredible instrument and a fantastic attitude. He is always willing to help you with whatever your particular need may be, and he's a very kind and engaging vocal instructor. He is passionate about what he does, and equally passionate about helping you with what you do!

Gabriel is awesome! I had absolutely zero acting experience before him. He taught me the basics of acting as well as tips to get into the industry. I am now working on video reels and perfecting monologues. I highly recommend Gabriel for any experience level. I am now much more confident in my abilities and am very excited to continue learning from him.
