D. B. SWEENEY, Actor, Feature Films, Broadway, Off-Broadway, Television “The real bonus with Jeff is his insight into the craft of acting. Bennett has clearly digested most of what’s in print on the subject and distilled it down to a startlingly clear system. ”

KARMINE ALERS , Broadway Actress from RENT and Aida “I truly enjoyed the productions I’ve viewed at The Bare Bones Theater. The actors and direction of the production were of Broadway caliber.  As an actor myself it was inspiring to see and made me want to work that much harder and better.  I would highly recommend anyone to attend.”
LEE MEYER, Actor “Jeff is that rare teacher and director who truly cares about all of his students and their growth as actors. He makes sure that everyone has their chance to shine, whether or not they’re destined to make it in the big time. ”

ALLYSA ADAMS, TV Reporter “Jeff Bennett is not a one trick teacher. There is never one answer to an acting problem in Bennett’s class. I still use the tools I learned in his classes in my job today. ”
