me a lovely note after she booked her role in Bruce Willis’ Mercury Rising (dir. Harold Becker 1989):
“Andrea, thank you so much for your coaching
and help with my audition. You were so caring and generous with your time. I know it was above and beyond what most casting
directors do. I am very grateful for your help. I know I wouldn’t have gotten this role without it.”
Andrea has coached me for several feature film auditions. I auditioned with Alexander Payne a few years
back for a role in 'Sideways'. Thanks to Andrea's coaching on my sides, I received a personal phone call for Mr.
Payne complimenting me on my work. She helps me work moment to moment and creates an environment
that is so safe. I can try anything and then she helps guide me to the honesty of the scene. She is fabulous to
bounce ideas off of and builds my confidence for the day of my auditions!-

…Andrea Stark is an excellent instructor with a gift for knowing exactly how to communicate best with
any given student, able and interested in changing how she attempts to reach and/or teach any specific individual. Her
vivaciousness, acumen and interpersonal skills set the bar high…

Andrea Stark is compassionate instructor who puts in time above and beyond what is asked.
Her accessibility and temperament are a perfect match to her acute constructive criticism which is always on point.
Moreover, and perhaps most importantly, as soon as you step on stage, she is your biggest fan,
but in the most sincere and truest of ways. And having someone truly rooting for you as you perform is an actors best asset.

…Your insights, patience and skill have me accomplishing
things I never dreamed possible, finding meaning and nuances in characters and words... Thank you.
