Insightful and inspiring.! The two words that best describe Michelle’s Golden Box class. Edgemar is easily the best acting school in Los Angeles (LA). She has perfected putting actors in touch with the tools they already have to be successful. I laughed, I cried and I feel I walked away better equipped and ready to tackle my next audition. It is perfectly clear why Michelle travels internationally to teach this class.. This is a class that I would without hesitation recommend any actor at any stage in their career take, if they are looking to further master their craft . Being that The Golden Box serves as a prerequisite for Michelle's scene study class, I am extremely excited to see what more Michelle has to offer me as a young aspiring actor.

"One While Crow" is the second play I've seen at the Edgemar, "The Rainmaker" was the first.

The theater is surrounded by fun places to eat, so one-stop entertainment can happen here. There is paid self-parking at the theater, or free parking in the residential area just a block north of the theater. The staff are very friendly, the restrooms are clean, and refreshments are available at their snack bar.

There are two theaters for plays, both are intimate, and neither has any bad seats. I saw Rainmaker in the larger theater and White Crow in the smaller one - both were very well directed and acted, and the sets were creatively designed.The seats were comfortable. While Rainmaker had been around for some time, White Crow had it's premier here, and the play was excellent!

I see at least a play a month, and I will become a regular at to the Edgemar.

The play , " The Rainmaker ' was the reason we came and it was a very good take. Small, theater with no bad seats. Cast was outstanding, interesting play and not at all expensive. A great way to see a play without paying through the nose. My hats off to this community based group. I appreciate the effort they do for Santa Monica.

My husband and I just saw The Rainmaker at Edgemar Center for the Arts and we can't wait to go back to see more. We'd never seen the play or the movie so we had no preconceived ideas about what to expect from the performance. It was a small, intimate theater. Very comfortable. I felt like I was sitting in a chair in the corner of the kitchen listening to the neighbors interact. The actors were all superb in their roles. The only one who seemed to be overacting just slightly was the actor who played the Rainmaker himself - but after reflection, I realize that the character himself was an "actor" of sorts on the stage of life, so that was probably quite fitting for the role. The Theater troupe was Henry Jaglom and The Rainbow Theater Company. This play was quite appropriate for families (no children, just teens and up). Intermission was another story. The "refreshment" stand wasn't - I think somebody forgot to pick up the water, soda, etc. because in a theater that fit maybe 120 people max, they had already run out of water, wine, soda - and the drinking fountain didn't work. Fortunately, there was a Peets Coffee right outside the door so I'm sure they appreciate the business. If you go, be there on time. Nobody is allowed in five minutes after the start because you are literally walking on the stage to get to your seat! More than worth it. Go across the street afterward to Thai Vegan - It's a hole in the wall next to a Thai Massage place (I know - don't go there! LOL!) - order at the counter and the staff is a bit rude - BUT the food was absolutely incredible. Nothing over $7.00 - prices primarily $5 - $7. Well worth the comically inept (think Seinfeld's Soup Nazi) staff.

Michelle Danner is very dedicated and some excellent actors have come out of this school and community theater.
It is nice to have a theater in town, convenient and kind of cozy. Not all the plays are great but most are and its fun to watch the actors as they grow in their craft.
