An Actor’s Testimony:
“It was a great honor to work with Marie McKinney – she is a well of information: historical facts. literature, theater, grants, voice, movement… like coming across a “rare groove” when that groove hits you for the first time, it stays with you a long time. Really powerful stuff, with a lot of layers drama/comedy/accents! She is very in touch with how to develop strong characters .I gained a lot of knowledge and confidence in her class, and I had it inside of me the whole time, but she helped bring it out.I was a little green to the whole classical theater that the NEC is famous for. Marie is a very strong actress herself so there are a lot of gems you get just by listening when she speaks.” Kymbali Craig in Film Low Low, Bailey’s Cafe, The Passage: Stories of the MAAFA, below
