From Brian Patacca (C 98): Brian is looking forward to coaching a Master Class on May 16th in Los Angeles. Mitch Lerner, a Northwestern graduate has said, “I’m grateful for everything Actor Salon does to foster an active, productive, healthy, positive environment and support system for all of us in salon. Personally, my sense of responsibility to myself has been completely turned around and grown since joining salon – wholly due to the motivation from the group. Really incredible things are happening. THANK YOU.”


NU alumni are also welcome to audit Actor Salon for free in New York and Los Angeles. 2014 Northwestern University theatre graduates are welcome to attend Master Class for free. For details visit or e-mail .

Composer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and NU alum Sasha Bayan (BSM ’13) has released his long-anticipated album Do I Know You?. The album features nine original songs written and performed by Sasha alongside thirty-four other NU musicians. His sound lands somewhere amidst the music of Brian Wilson, Andrew Bird, Frank Zappa, Sufjan Stevens, and musical theatre. You can stream and purchase the album in full at as well as on Spotify and iTunes.
