“Shelley is a wizard!”

Lee Strasberg

“Shelley’s work is very definite, very sound, very detailed!”

Sean Penn

“Shelley is the real deal!”

“Eleonora Duse transformed the nature of acting. Though she died nearly 80 years ago, her influence lives in the work of movie stars today, men and women schooled by the generation of American acting teachers who had seen Duse perform when they were young and half a century later still held her up to their students as the exemplar of what an actor could be. Lee Strasberg and Stella Adler, who agreed about virtually nothing else, both worshiped her. ‘The Theatre will require the next hundred years to deal with what Duse represented,’ Strasberg told his students at the Actors Studio.”
-LA Times article August 24, 2003

At Duse Studio, our mission is to bring Eleonora Duse’s sense of artistry and spirituality to a new generation.
