"Studying acting without Lauren is like climbing Mt. Everest without oxygen! Lauren isn’t a teacher who tells you what to do. She helps you create a deep connection with a character, even though it can sometimes feel uncomfortable. But stepping into that casting office knowing in your gut you have an edge on other actors is priceless.”

Michael Provost

"It's hard to put into words how immensely Lauren has affected my acting! She has enabled me to come at every character differently and with a positive state of mind. Her use of environment is second to none and has transformed my creative process. I'm certain that any actor who has trained with Lauren would agree that you grow just as much as a person as you do as an actor! She opens emotional doors and gives insight that we as humans are often blind to. It's an honor to work with her, and a blessing to have a studio like LPN to call home!"

Kyle Allen

“To give someone the ability to create emotions in others and to tell a compelling story is truly a gift. A gift that is given so freely by Lauren in this class. The extreme concentration of talent, from Lauren to her students, has given me the opportunity to grow quickly as an actor and as a person. I have seen myself and others transform in this class. That said, this studio has become much more than a class, but a place where people can be themselves and not only be accepted, but embraced and celebrated. This studio has made me the actor and person I am today. I’m proud to be able to call this studio my home.”

"Lauren's class has changed my life. She is so much more than an Acting Coach, Teacher and Friend... She's a Deviation from the common type... an Anomaly! She brings out the Best in you while helping you become “every YOU" in front of the masses. Brilliant, Superb and Excellent are just some of the words that describe her."

I look forward to each opportunity to get lost in our amazing world.

"I audited several other acting classes for months before meeting Lauren. It was only at her class did I feel it in my gut that this was right for me. Her long-form improv and the level of caliber of her actors is so intimidating. I signed up to study with Lauren right after my audit because I saw her coach her students in an honest, direct and specific yet compassionate way."

I personally cannot thank her enough for taking the actor inside of me and helping him come alive."

Lauren Nadler has given me tools to build confidence as an actor which has translated into my growth as a  human being. From the moment I stepped into her studio it felt like home. She is masterful in identifying what her students need and drawing the best from them. She has also built a family environment where all of her students love not only her but each other. She is truly invested in and dedicated to her students. I am blessed to have her on my acting journey.

Acting is a craft. It’s an art. And furthermore, it’s quite personal. When you study with an acting coach, that prep time can be the difference between a solid performance and your best performance. You need someone who knows how to get immediate honest work out of you. Someone who gets you so dialed in with the material that it is just in your bones. I searched for that coach for years, and then I met Lauren Nadler. Lauren strengthens your strengths and cuts the things that aren’t working. Her method is bullet proof if you focus and listen to her. She always helps me get to the truth and I leave her feeling ready for whatever is thrown my way. From morning to night, she is always available for her actors and gives you 100% of her whether or not she has slept the night before!! She’s the real deal!! Thank you Lauren, for everything. Let’s keep killing it!! Love you!!!

"I am super excited to be in my first Feature Film. Lauren Patrice Nadler has definitely helped me in my journey, transitioning from being a WWE Superstar to an up and coming actress.

I am so proud of the growth I have experienced as an actress since I started attending class, and I am eternally grateful to Lauren for creating a space for me and so many others to be as creative and honest as possible. Through studying with Lauren, I have learned how to make my work truthful and meaningful, and I will never be able to thank her enough for that. She is a devoted and caring teacher that takes the time to connect with every student to help us be the best actors we can be. Thank you Lauren for inspiring me and helping me grow so much as an actor and a person."

"Lauren fearlessly helped bring out emotions in me I never knew existed. I now tackle characters from the girl next oor to gritty risky roles. She's a BS-meter. Lauren hears and sees lies, crutches and tricks that actors use as they happen. She not only spots them, but helps you delve into why you are using them and what youa re not doing to tell te truth. That relization is priceless. As is Lauren!"

Erin Astin

“Lauren has taught me more about letting it all go as an actor and personalizing my work than anyone else out there. She always stressed to do the work and throw the rest away. To take risks.

The thing that I love about working with Lauren is she brings her unique, personal relationship to character based approach and skillfully marries it with my conservatory training. Thank you, Lauren!!"

taught me how to create and write a story, how to listen and be extremely present in the moment while performing, and there is no limit to what I can do and achieve. I LOVE LPN Studios and I am so grateful to have found a community that has only helped further my career."

Alexa Guiffre

Major Crimes, Mixology

“I have audited over 20 classes in LA, and none of them even come CLOSE to the experience and knowledge you gain from Lauren's class. Within a month of my first coaching session, I booked my first role on television. Between the constant support & encouragement from your classmates, and Lauren's “no bullshit” passionate attitude, it is impossible to not improve and succeed with your craft. This acting studio is truly the best kept secret in LA.“
