"The Phantom" THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (North American Tour)

"This work is so very important for anyone looking to dig deeper in hopes of finding out who they actually are. Should you hope to find your self a movie star or simply better human this is for you." www.coopergrodin.com

"Elder Price" THE BOOK OF MORMON (Natl. Tour and cover on Broadway)

"Matthew Corozine changed me as an actor. He is STILL changing me as an actor. Every day that I go onstage, or behind a camera, his technique and wisdom go with me, until I forget, and then his voice reminds me to react to what I'm getting in an honest and truthful way. I feel like he has helped, and continues to help, me find myself and who I am, and more and more, I am able to access who I truly am on a daily basis, and not that person I pretend to be on Facebook. I think of him not only as an amazing teacher/ acting coach, but also as an incredible life coach. Because acting is life. And life is acting."

"Nabulungi" THE BOOK OF MORMON, WICKED, SPAMALOT, FOOTLOOSE, LEGALLY BLONDE (All Broadway)

"Matt is the kind of teacher who accepts nothing less than your best. At MCS I learned how to interpret text through my voice, which I feel makes for unique and solid work every time. There’s no comparing or copying; it’s all about trusting your gifts and becoming your most authentic and fearless self, on and off stage."

THE NORMAL HEART (Natl. Tour), THE ADDAMS FAMILY, A CHORUS LINE (Broadway)

"My work with Matt over the past couple years has given me the skills and confidence to truly consider myself an actor with something unique and personal to offer. The curriculum at MCS and Matt's intuitive skills as a teacher have helped me to work through my personal blocks, many of which I didn't even know I had! This transformation has led to an exciting new appetite for the world of acting. This is a most definitely a class I'd recommend to anybody who aspires to deliver honest and powerful work in their career as an actor."

WATCH OUT, BLOODFEATHERS (Off-Off Bdwy)

"When I started taking class with Matthew Corozine, my perspective on myself began to change. I saw that everything I thought and felt about how beautiful and painful and wonderful and lonely it is to be a person, was right. And that other people were feeling the same things I was feeling. That's my ultimate goal in this pursuit; whether it's through laughing, crying or cringing, I want to remind people of the human condition, that we each have our own unique experiences and that we are all the same. “Know your 'why'” Matthew says to us. Because of him, not only do I know my why, but I feel it more fiercely than I ever thought I could." www.courtneycase.net

ALTAR BOYZ(Regional)

"Studying at MCS has been a wonderful, terrifying, heart wrenching, and beautiful gift. It is always an ongoing process, but I have learned to let go of the nonsense I hold onto in exchange for freedom and truth . Matt is an amazing coach with insane instincts and is able to see you at the core of who you really are. I am grateful to be apart of this community of actors and call MCS my home." www.patrickelliott.com

BAGGAGE CLAIM A collective unpacking (MCS original produciton)

"Matthew’s training has undoubtedly changed my life. He has taught me to tell the truth both on and off the stage and to me that’s the most precious gift. Today, I’m a better actor and a better person because of my time with him. I have yet to meet a teacher who is more passionate and more dedicated to making his students better in every way possible."

WICKED (original cast, "Nessarose"), CHICAGO, ROCK OF AGES (Broadway)

“I had the opportunity to work with a prominent tv director (Friends, Everyone Loves Raymond,etc) recently and jumped in as the lead actress while she was away. Only because of the training with Matt Corozine was I able to trust my instincts enough to DIVE IN without any hesitation. From my work at MCS, I was able to get out of my own way to serve the work with fearlessness, professionalism, and truth. MCS has helped me become a generous actor who trusts going for it and not holding back!” www.cristycandler.com
