“What always stood out to me about Mr. Bradshaw was the manner in which he helped me uncover my true feelings on a particular piece. There was no right or wrong-just an open, honest discussion about my reactions toward that specific moment we were working on. He approaches the entire process with patience and a sense of humor and gives the actor clear direction while leaving enough room for self discovery.”
-Liz Gerecitano (Off-Broadway companies of "My Big Gay Italian Wedding" and "Tony 'n Tina's Wedding")
“I can personally attest to the value of Robert's guidance, insight, and artistic integrity. He has consistently challenged me to bring a level of clarity to my work that I would not have been able to achieve on my own--and for that, I am eternally grateful."
-Jon Barker (Cassio in "Othello", Shakespeare Theatre of NJ)
"As a coach, Rob creates an honest and constructive environment mixed with his brand of humor where you feel safe enough to let yourself think outside the box and try a different approach to your craft. But he also helps you to remember to get back to the basics if you find yourself in a stale rut when it comes to your acting process!"
-Desiree Rodriguez ("Tricks the Devil Taught You", Minetta Lane Theatre)
