Jane Drake Brody is a 'genius,' who made me complete a five-year plan and to make my acting dreams come true.
Joe Keery, Stranger Things.

“Jane Brody took me by the hand as a teacher and casting director, and led me from obscurity and destitution to a career as an actor, which was no mean feat. Even today, years after leaving her class, I find myself relying on the principles and ideas she presented to her students, which I may never have encountered otherwise.” Michael Shannon, (Tony Award: Long Day's Journey Into Night, Golden Globe Award Best Supporting Actor, Screen Actors Guild Award Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series ).

“Jane Brody is a defender and champion of all that makes an actor capable of a great career. She is an artist’s best friend: a liberator and a disciplinarian, a zealot and a traditionalist, a constant student, and a master of field.”
Harry Lennix, multiple award-nominated actor, Man of Steel, The Matrix, The Blacklist

“As a former student, I was able to use Jane’s principles early on in my career and there is no doubt that she helped prepare me for the long, winding, up-and-down path that eventually lead to my role on Modern Family.”
Eric Stonestreet, two-time Emmy Award-winning actor
