"MN Acting Studio is by far the best on-camera acting school in New York City. Our clients have gone from just being really great actors to booking guest stars, recurring guest stars, series regular roles and supporting/lead roles in films. All of the actors taking classes at MN Acting Studio, whether developmental or working actors, are far better equipped with the necessary tools needed to not only make it in this difficult business but to sustain a career at the highest level. If you are lucky enough to get into one of the classes offered by Matt or his incredible staff, it would be a mistake not to jump at the chance to take them. In a very short period of time, you will become a better actor with a handle on how the business works and will walk away with the knowledge and power of how to have the career you want and how you, too, can make it to the top." - ERICA BINES, AGENT, HEADLINE TALENT AGENCY
"Matt Newton has one of the most well-trained eyes for talent I’ve ever seen. With students who are learning the true craft of auditions and performance, I highly recommend him as a coach. More over, as the business continues to grow and change, so does the ‘audition’ process. Too oft are actors burdened with the task of the ubiquitous self-tape. Matt has top of the line technology and his self-tapes are 110% ready to send off to CDs, Producers, Directors, etc.. Even better, when he gets the chance to coach and tape, I could not imagine a better success rate!" -CHRISTOPHER SILVERI, CSM
"Love this man! Become a student of Matt Newton. You won't regret it." -KIM GRAHAM, CASTING ASSOCIATE,"Homeland"
