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

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.

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.

Absolutely wonderful! I have been taking lessons from Sandra for over a year now and always look forward to it. She is very knowledgeable and sets up a comfortable atmosphere. I have learned so much and couldn't thank her enough.
Rivkah
I've been seeing Sandra for 7 years and I consistently look forward to my lesson every week. I have seen myself improve tremendously in my singing, acting, and sight-reading. Sandra provides an atmosphere of serious learning in which I have been taught how to control by voice, but she is also very personable and always up for a fun chat. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher!
Linda
Fantastic teacher. I learned so much more in a short time with Sandra than I learned with all the other voice trainers I have had through the years. Her method is rewarding.

"Only 10 lessons in - and already I have seen a significant difference in my 'on air' voice - thanks to the direction, tutelage, tools and ultimate care Bill has offered.
Every session has a great flow, offers new ideas and most importantly there's a great level of comfort as venturing into new areas with your voice is not always easy. It is also incredibly useful that Bill sends out the weeks lesson plan/agenda a few days before our lesson so that I can wrap my head around what we will cover. Further on, I have the lesson plan so that I can always revert back to the tools that are taught as a reminder.
Before Bill I had worked with a voice coach that was 4 times the cost, and very generic in the teachings, rather then with Bill who caters the sessions to my needs, and is obviously affordable.
I fully recommend Bill, as you can tell. Very little cost for you to try an introductory 5 lessons - and from there you will certainly learn new ways to increase/sharpen your skill level."

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting

Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un …
