HB Studio’s 75th Anniversary season celebrates the many singular artists, past and present, who are part of our storied legacy–from legends like Herbert Berghof and Uta Hagen to contemporary artists such as Scott Ellis and Mercedes Ruehl. This year, our public programs feature the vibrant pool of actors and artists working at HB today, as they build upon the work and practices cultivated here over our 75-years.
2019 marks the centennial of the iconic American actor-teacher Uta Hagen’s birth in June 1919. Throughout the year HB Studio is honoring Miss Hagen’s legacy through a series of special activities, classes, workshops and public events. Activities will take place at HB Studio — the working home where Uta Hagen honed her methods and mentored 7 generations of artists and teachers — as well as throughout New York City, Montauk and beyond, culminating in a Gala Tribute in June 2019.
