What the Critics Say
“Happily, this production, artfully directed by Dan Spurgeon, with accomplished performances by Amelia Gotham and Nich Kauffman, triumphs over those expectations… The versatile Kauffman, capable of communicating a ton of meaning with a single squint, portrays all the other characters: the commanding master who hires Gotham, the uneducated housekeeper, a comic figure, the scary phantom and the disturbed 10-year-old Miles, at times a threatening presence.”
– LA Weekly
“Director Dan Spurgeon works wonders with a cast of two enormously talented actors (the chameleonic Nich Kauffman…”
“The two actors are both so commanding and electric, that I sat entranced during the entire performance.” – Goldstar Events, Inc.
“…is accompanied by familiar friends: Boots the Monkey (a funny and acrobatic Nich Kauffman)
– New York Daily News, April 13, 2004
“Among the adults, it’s not … who dominates, but Nich Kauffman in the traditional lower-key role of candy store proprietor Doc. His performance is every bit as intense as the street hoods he befriends.”
-Tom Titus, Daily Pilot, November 19, 2008
What they are saying...
“Nich was the most wonderful instructor. He took the time to get to know me as a person, and he was able to see me as an actor. Not only did he give me advice on my career, he let me know my strengths as well as my weaknesses and was an encouraging and inspiring mentor.”
“Nich is the best acting teacher I have ever had. He not only gives equal attention to each student in our class, but he also makes each student feel special. He provides a safe learning environment.”
“Wow. I truly don’t know where to begin! Nich is such an amazing person and teacher. I learned an incredible amount in this class as an actor and a person.”
“He is extremely inspiring. Not only did I learn tools for acting in scenes, I learned life lessons as well. He stresses that we as individuals, are enough and that there is beauty in imperfection. He accepts when we make mistakes but more importantly he encourages us to accept them as well. I feel a freedom in my acting and my life after taking this class. Nicholas Kauffman is a stellar person and amazing teacher!”
“This was by far the best class I have ever taken because of Nich!”
