The greatest gift we have to give the world is our honest, one of a
kind, unique self! In this world of opinions, rejection, and
disappointments that gift of "self" can all too often get buried under
years of pain, shame and loss. These buried treasures are the greatest
tools an actor needs to do his or her best work. Larry has the gift of
compassion and insight that help the actor to reconnect, rediscover, and
embrace that common thread of pain that connects us all. It is only
from this place of connectedness that true craft is possible.
are willing to work, and I mean really dig in, Larry will give you tools
to do your best work. He will help you to "change into yourself" and
from there everything is possible!
Larry Moss gave me my power back as an actress. The power is here, in
here, not out there. I learned not just about the craft but, about the
art, and the art of living. I am excited to live my life more
courageously and fearlessly so I can tell stories... wonderful stories
about being alive. Larry speaks a language that can only be heard from
the heart. I'm so grateful to have studied with him and I can't wait
until the next time. Thank you!
Larry's class opened up a whole new understanding of technique and
excellence to the art of acting. His passion, dedication and knowledge
of acting is both elevating and inspiring. I frequently refer to Larry's
teachings on my projects. He is the most amazing craftsman I have ever
had the pleasure and appreciation of learning from and I hope to
continue over the years.

Larry confirmed to me that the joy of this craft is to be able to
revel in the doing of it without attachment to its outcome. What seemed
to be a great acting lesson became a great life lesson. It began as idea
then became a practice... then it healed my life.
The clarity of his teaching is very refreshing. The application of
the fundamentals is immediately useful and necessary. It is not possible
to "wing it" through the plays Larry works on. He gets to the meat of
the scene and to the meat of the actor. After spending a week in the
intensive, watching very dramatic and funny material, I was affected
deeply by the plays and the actors working on themselves and the
material. I felt more connected on a human to everyone else by the end
of the week. I plan on continuing the work and hope to work with Larry
Larry is without a doubt the most prophetic, insightful, inspiring
teachers I've worked with or observed. Everyone gets what they most need
at the time.
Larry Moss' grasp of the human animals emotional condition and it's
relation to the artistry of a writers pain- is respectively applied to
the life of the written character. So much so, that under his direction
and tutelage no actors approach to living through the writer could be
more alive and more thoughtful. Larry moss' universe does not exist as a
life of self, but a life of living. His passion for actors, writers,
and the tragedy betwixt- is blatantly certain. Larry's approach is so
refined- that "just acting" becomes life infinitely mirrored by the

Larry Moss is a profound man that has earned through his bravery and
intelligence to be told Thank You everyday of his life. Larry's passion
and excitement gave me hope, direction, understanding, confidence and
relit a lifelong passion for my craft! Tremendously grateful and Blessed
for his guidance.
Larry's skill at dissecting a script paired with his insight into the
human condition make him an incredible teacher and mentor. Not only has
he made me a better and smarter actor, but, more importantly, he's made
me a better person.
Studying with Larry Moss is like having access to the most authentic,
brilliant, truths of the craft of acting. If you are serious about
becoming the best actor you can be-- Larry's teaching can show you the
When there is a will there is a way - When there is Larry Moss there is a highway.
Larry Moss has and is an unparalled gift to the acting community
worldwide. I have had many fine teachers but never anyone who
understands the craft of acting like Larry. I have taken many acting
workshops from him and am always amazed by his laser-like critiques of
students technique, of their interpretations of text and occasionally
his discernment of their emotional pain which he sees as a roadblock to
their continuing progress as an actor(if any other teacher deals with
emotional blocks I would say run, but not Larry). He has in so many ways
changed my life. He fueled the flame in me again regarding my passion
for acting, and touched my life with the beauty of what it is to be
human. Thanks again Larry. I could NEVER say thank you enough.
Gratefully yours forever,
Larry's teaching is a pure gift. His words are healing yet at the
same time, fireworks for the soul. He pours his love of acting and the
depth of humanity into each scene. Everyone leaves his class not just a
better actor but a better person. Thank you Larry.
Larry's teaching enlivens you as an actor -- he ignites a fire in his
students. Whenever I leave his class, I feel inspired to work more,
create more and truly discover myself as a person and artist. He is a
true gift to this art form.
Larry Moss is responsible for my new found love and obsession with
playwrights. He's introduced me to the work of Moliere, Albee, Shanley
and Inge..just to name a few. I'm eternally grateful to him for
providing a safe environment for me to act out these wild, genius and
heartbreaking works of art.
Larry Moss’ acting workshop is more like a temple of self realization
and self repair, courage and humility. It is an education on the great
plays and playwrights. It is impossible to not sit in awe and gratitude
of what he is teaching and imparting on his students. His workshops have
changed and deepened my acting but more importantly they have changed
and deepened my life.
