The Kalmensons were able to join forces with a uniquely qualified actor, teacher, and lecturer to kick off their Improvisational Adventure. With a biography that could start a handsome paper drive, Stephen Tobolowsky brings with him a verve and compassion for actors second to none. Stephen shares his in-depth knowledge of Stanislavski, along with more than two hundred theatrical credits.
