“Your workshop feedback was off the charts. Thank you for being so generous.” Anthony LoGrasso – NYCDA

“Thank you for the wonderful workshop. It was lovely to take a workshop with someone who wears so many hats because it meant you had more well-rounded insights when answering our questions.” MA

“Debra Thanks again for the workshop on Tuesday night. One of the marks of a good director, for me, is someone who creates a safe environment where an actor can play and feel free to discover both things about a piece and about him or herself. Thank you for that.” CS

“Had an amazing time at tonight’s casting director workshop. Debra Markowitz was an absolute blast. It’s so much easier to fall in love with acting again when taking workshops from someone who genuinely loves actors and the process.” DR
