Katherine Laheen coached me with Shakespearean text in preparation for an important audition, and I left our session feeling more confidant about the pieces than before--even with one piece in particular I had worked with for well over a year.
Her comprehensive knowledge of the material helped me understand phrases as they were meant to be used, which then led to me discovering new motivations, and streamlined a series of exercises which felt effortless and in total support of the pieces.
Ms. Laheen, though as working as my senior, made me feel respected, listened to, and ultimately so comfortable throughout the process which led me to being able to explore freely in my performance. I also want to mention, I am close to age with Katherine but still felt such a respect and trust in her approach, that of which I have not even felt as strongly about with more seasoned coaches that I have worked with in both London and New York City.
Katherine really is a world class professional, insightful and articulate individual. I highly recommend working with her.
I feel like I have a better grasp on the monologues, have new ways in which to approach text all around, and feel validated in my own talent for having worked with her.
