Wynn Handman, an acting teacher and co-founder/director of the American Place Theater. Teaching well into his 90s, Wynn was an influence on thousands of performers—among them, former students Richard Gere, James Caan, Joel Grey, Denzel Washington, Michael Douglas, Mia Farrow, Allison Janney, Frank Langella and Chris Cooper. One of his students, who also worked as his assistant, Billy Lyons, would go on to make the documentary It Takes A Lunatic, seen at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2019 (and now on Netflix), providing a heartfelt look at Mr. Handman as a teacher and human being.For a look back at his career please see the link below.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wynn_Handman
