Quarantine virtual meisner repetition practice? 
Hi All, 

“Looking for folks (who have done a two-year Meisner program) interested in doing some virtual Meisner repetition practice. Send me a message or reply here and let me know where you did your Meisner training; mine was at Gately Poole Acting Studio in NYC years ago.” —Meisnerguy

L.A. classes?
Hope everyone is safe and doing well!

“Obviously everything is shut down but I recently moved to Los Angeles right before COVID and I was wondering what acting classes (film/television, audition techniques, scene study, etc.) are reputable and/or affordable that people enjoy here? In the meantime, I am open to virtual classes but I am mostly focusing on getting into class in-person at some point once things start opening up again (whenever that may be). 

“Thanks for any suggestions!” —Toby7

Acting book recommendations?
While I have so much time in quarantine, I'm looking for some acting books! Any Recommendations?” —HotSauce12
