ROB ADLER – ACTOR/DIRECTOR/ACTING COACH

 

Rob Adler is a Filmmaker, Actor and Performance Coach. He is an internationally recognized expert in improvisation specializing in helping actors and directors to get out of their head and bring spontaneity & presence to scripted performances. He is the founder of the AdlerImprov Studio in Hollywood (www.adlerimprov.com), a coach for actors, directors and production companies like Lionsgate, Disney, FOX, NBC and ABC and writes a regular column offering expert advice to actors for Backstage (https://goo.gl/RSWRwZ).

 

He is a professor of Acting at DePaul University and his teaching is sought after nationally and internationally at places like the USC School of Dramatic Arts, CalArts, the Geffen Playhouse, American Music & Dramatic Academy, Boston University, Occidental College, the famed USC School of Cinematic Arts and internationally in places like Tokyo, Nassau (for the Bahamas International Film Festival), at the Shanghai Theatre Academy and in Stockholm for Top Model Sweden.

 

Adler directed the acclaimed short film iVOTE, based on the true story of a whistleblower, starring Academy Award nominee Eric Roberts and Emmy Award winners Dan Lauria and Sharon Lawrence. A long time activist, Adler’s artistic mission is to raise awareness of peace and progress issues, which is also reflected in the plays and films he has directed, including recently The Diary Play, an original adaptation of Anne Frank's diary for the Trump era. He devised and directed Patriot Act, starring acclaimed performer Roger Guenveur Smith (Do the Right Thing, American Gangster, Rodney King), continuing his long time affiliation with Los Angeles’ Bootleg Theater. For the Will Geer Theater, Adler directed Rise & Shout, starring Joe Mantegna, Jack Klugman, Jean Smart and Wendie Malick.

 

As an actor, Rob Adler has appeared in Hollywood films, commercials and television shows. On the stage, Adler recently performed in Los Angeles with Theatre Dybbuk playing Jethro in the world premier of Exagoge (an unearthed greek tragedy thought to be the first written 'Jewish' play) and a celebrated run as "Larry the Liquidator" at the Pico Playhouse with the acclaimed Interact Theatre Company.
