The Montauk Group is continuing the struggle to create a better world by inviting true artists to do what Elia Kazan and Lee Strasberg did for past generations. They taught, gave back and passed the baton to those destined to break new ground for the future artists of the world. I have invited successful directors, producers, writers, actors, casting agents and musicians to participate to insure that this work will not be lost to our culture.
The Montauk Group Summer Program for 2014 is under way!
