Space Station Casting Studios

Space Station Casting location closing.

Dear Space Station Community,

A lot has transpired since we at Space Station have seen you. We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy. This pandemic has caused a great deal of loss, personally and professionally, for most of us. It is with the deepest sincerity that we say, we miss you.

It is with a heavy heart that we write this letter today. While this global crisis has caused changes and difficulties in almost every industry, the entertainment industry has been hit exceptionally hard. As the situation unfolded we had endless discussions of what Space Station would look like moving forward. When/If we reopen how do we do so in a way that we feel confident in the safety of our clients, our staff, and the thousands of visitors that come in and out of our building on a monthly basis. The unfortunate reality that we've had to face is this crisis is not going away in the near-term. We believe it would be irresponsible to reopen as we would potentially be causing additional harm to our community. We discussed reopening at half-capacity, changing our business model, and many other options... but the reality is, Space Station has already taken on a substantial financial burden over the past 3 months, and the company can no longer afford to remain to open.

After over 10 years of serving our community, Space Station Casting Studios is officially closing its doors for good. We will remember all of you fondly and we hope we gave you a space you could call home for a few hours a week. Please remember the laughs, the puppies, and the wonderfully talented actors that you brought into our building. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your support over the years, it has been a true adventure.

Stay safe, stay strong, stay healthy. Our community will endure and we'll see you on the other side.

All the best,

Sherrie Henderson, Ben Rovner, The Late and Great Dan Velez,
and
The Space Station Team

“To be an interesting actor, hell, to be an interesting human being, you must be authentic and for you to be authentic you must embrace who you really are, warts and all. Do you have any idea how liberating it is to not care what people think about you? Well, that’s what we’re here to do.”

-Sanford Meisner

We've been able to do some Meisner classes via Zoom during this time so we don't get rusty.

Tuesday Not Saturdays.
In an old Russian bathhouse on the Lower East side of New York, patrons come to cleanse themselves of the dirt and struggle of a week’s work in the city. The heat is their medicine and the masseuse is their high priest. They struggle both with themselves and each other consciously, or unconsciously, seeking healing from some deep wounds as the heat rises and their dilemmas surface.
