What is The Lab?

Entering students to GSS Film & TV acting classes will take The Lab. Imagine the experience of three years of classical theatre training at the Yale School of Drama along with thousands of auditions and hundreds of days on sets of Network and Studio projects packed into three classes. Transmuting our decades into your days--that's The Lab.
