In my humble opinion, what our art form (acting) lacks, is a degree of individual integrity that keeps the artist pursuing a mastery of their craft and to better themselves as human beings; there seems to be little interest in creating something beautiful, for it’s own sake. Chris Fields has great integrity. He is an artist. He believes in the actor, the theater, and the human spirit. He is father, actor, director, teacher, and artistic director; all done with care and such compassion, you can actually see him bleed. Chris has directed me twice, and on both occasions he has guided me with tender and empowering hands, communicating his vision clearly and without hitting me over the head with lofty directions, we created something simple and true, both times. As a teacher, he’ll not only give you the tools to apply in all your professional work, but he’ll remind you of how special you are for what you do, and the great responsibility you have as an actor. He really is one of those people who want to create something beautiful for it’s own sake.
