"They teach you to celebrate your individuality." That quote is from Evanston's own, John Cusack. (Yes, anyone who knows me is well aware of my affection for Mr. C). I love his movies, love his politics and am quite fond of pretty much all that is John Cusack.
JC is very familiar with this workshop because he is close friends with the Piven family. (Jeremey of course is also a big star and a great actor). The Piven Workshop is a wonderful facility that trains up and coming thespians, and develops and nurtures the inner star in you. They have a solid and impressive theater program and a very impressive website (www.piventheatre.org). You may want to check them out.
