Milan will excite and inspire you, impacting your work for years to come!

William Shakespeare laced his dialogue with hundreds of intoxicating verbal formulas and “spells,” which captured the listener’s ear and imagination. This workshop seeks to reconnect the contemporary actor to this lost art of rhetorical persuasion and open doors onto a brave new world of vocal expression and power on stage.


“Milan teaches with such spirit, humor and momentum! You feel the pulse of theatre swirl through the class. Everyone wants to get hold of what he brings to acting.” 

– Melora Marshall, Lead Teacher and Founding Company Member – Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum


About the Professor:

Milan has performed with nationally recognized regional theaters across the country, including the Tony Award-winning Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Hartford Stage, Pasadena Playhouse, and Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum, where he earned a Los Angeles Dramalogue Critics Award for his portrayal of Richard III.

He is the author of a bold new book,
The Persuasive Actor: Rhetorical Power on the Contemporary Stage, a vigorous exploration of how classical rhetorical techniques can empower today’s performer in speaking verbally adventurous texts, from Shakespeare to Slam Poetry. A professor of performance at the University of Massachusetts, Milan was recognized with the UMass Outstanding Teaching Award in 2021
