"I’m so happy that I met Jack.  I used to dread auditions, but now I have a great time.  He completely unlocked what was locked in me.  I seriously couldn’t have done it without him.  His words of wisdom are always with me."

– Alyson Hannigan (
HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, AMERICAN PIE Movies, DATE MOVIE)

 "Jack has a 'nuts and bolts' method for helping actors conquer the terrors of auditioning.  Besides being a gifted teacher, he has commitment, compassion and respect for the actor.  And, thankfully, unlike many teachers in this business, he has no false ego."

- Jerry Stiller & Anne Meara (TV, Films, Stage)



"Jack has an innate ability to communicate a sense of freedom.  Not only does he embody it in his own work with a bold kind of ease, but he has also formulated a way to literally communicate it, in a very practical and tangible manner.  Our work together has allowed me to more reliably get out of my own way and connect to the material and situation at hand.  Whether at work or at an audition, I always feel there are elements of Jack's perspective from which I can draw to help guide my experience."

- Zach Quinto (STAR TREK, HEROES, SO NoTORIous, 24, CSI)


“After years of doing comedy, it was difficult to trust that I was ‘enough’.  I love that Jack coached me in such a way as to make me feel that I could take the risk to not be in a safe zone.  He started me down the road to doing more serious stuff.”

– Andrea Martin (Original Cast Member SCTV, MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING, Series Reg. on KIM POSSIBLE and JIMMY NEUTRON, B’way: YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN - Tony nom., OKLAHOMA, MY FAVORITE YEAR - Tony Award)


"During the long run of MILLIE ... all of my demons and insecurities were getting the better of me.  (Your friend) shared with me your affirmations and I would read them every night before I went out on stage and remind myself of them while I was on stage. ...They are now a permanent part of my dressing room collection.   They got  me through many 'rough and doubtful' times.  So thank you."
- Sutton Foster  (B'way - SHREK THE MUSICAL - Tony nom., YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE - Tony nom., LITTLE WOMEN - Tony nom., THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE - Tony Award)

"Ever since Jack rescued me from the depths of audition despondence by introducing me to his affirmations, not an audition or stage performance goes by without me calling upon those wise and freeing words.  Jack helped me remember that how we think about our work is just as important as the work itself."
- Carrie Preston (
Series Regular on TRUE BLOOD, DUPLICITY, DOUBT, VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA, TRANSAMERICA, THE GOOD WIFE, LOST, PRIVATE PRACTICE, LAW & ORDER: CI (Recurring), B’way: FESTEN, THE RIVALS)



"Get out of your head and back into your heart, and for godsakes have fun auditioning again.  A pretty profound statement one would think, especially in our cut-throat business where nerves are high and auditioning can feel like final exams.  Well, thanks to Jack, I found a different approach that refueled my passion for auditions and rekindled my love for why I was in this business in the first place, to have fun, and play in the life of someone else, even if only for a moment!"
-Bryce Johnson (POPULAR, LONESTAR, THE MENTALIST, PRETTY LITTLE LIARS, NAVY NCIS, NIP/TUCK) 


"I've printed out every page of Jack Plotnick's website and made an "acting Bible" for myself.  Auditioning used to cause me so much anxiety, but reading through this material has made me take the pressure off myself.  Casting people are not the "enemy" - FEAR is the enemy.  Acting is a joy!  So now I think of every audition as a chance to perform, and if I get the job, that's a nice bonus!  I thank God daily for giving me Jack as a friend; I've never met a more encouraging person.

Wendi McLendon-Covey (RENO 911!, BRIDESMAIDS, 10 THINGS I HATE, RULES OF ENGAGEMENT, THE OFFICE, KATH & KIM, OVER HER DEAD BODY, GREEK, BEWITCHED)

"I'm skeptical of acting classes because they're mostly taught by cranky out of work actors. Jack is a working actor who believes that performing should be a joyful experience, and studying with him has delivered concrete results. By continually releasing my attachment to the outcome, I became energized and started to have fun again. I am lucky enough to have worked with him and count him as a friend. Study with Jack. You'll be glad you did."
-Alec Mapa (UGLY BETTY, SHARPAY'S FABULOUS ADVENTURE, MARLEY & ME, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, HALF & HALF, CONNIE AND CARLA, ZOHAN)

"Jack has the ability to help actors cut to the true core, and discover the essence of what makes them special and unique.  He helps peel the layers that need to come off in order to inspire a deep performance out of somebody.  Instantly trustworthy, he puts actors at ease, as his deep love of the craft inspires confidence and is contagious."
-Jennifer Elise Cox (Jan in the BRADY BUNCH movies, THE BACK-UP PLAN, 10 ITEMS OR LESS, NUMB3RS, SIX FEET UNDER, NIP/TUCK, THE COMEBACK, CSI:NY)

 

 “Jack Plotnick’s work is the ultimate gift: It lifts you out of those ego-based fears and insecurities, those thoughts and choices that dull your performance and make you less than brilliant.  He brings you back to the glorious freedom of source energy and the magic of the moment, which is the magic of the real you!  If you want to be liberated as a creative artist and actor, run, do not walk to take a class with him!  And read every word in his website articles. When you use Jack’s work, you won’t be the same again.  You’ll break through and be better.  Surprisingly better.  And so much happier too!”
