My theater experience with you Susan was the best guidance, and the most profitable for my career. I have had some difficult times doing theater with other directors here. You, my dear, may be the only director I would ever consider working with in the theater again, in Los Angeles.

Susan is one of the best directors with whom I've had the pleasure of working, whether as a music director or singer/actor."

I did a number of shows with Susan and she is one of my favorite directors! From the quality of her shows to the way she is able to build each cast into a tight, cohesive team — she instinctively knows how to get the best from each actor. She helped me find my voice and I was able to break through on a number of roles, which also helped me grow as an agent-represented commercial actor. I miss you Susan!!!

We have worked with Susan for years in many different aspects of theatre. Experiencing her skills as a teacher, director, collaborator and mentor, has been instrumental to us throughout our careers. Susan's range of skill and technique is nothing short of amazing. She has the utmost standard for her work practices, and will put her heart and soul into every project she works on. We have brought in her expertise on many projects, as an acting coach, music video director, creator of unique industrial theatre, immersive theatre, dramaturgy, as well as personal mentorship. Could not recommend her more highly.

I have been lucky enough to have been directed by Susan Boulanger in numerous shows. One of my most challenging productions with Susan was when I played a variety of roles in The Last Days of Judas Iscariot. In particular, I struggled with Henrietta Iscariot, Judas’ mother. She has a very intense and emotional opening monologue. Susan worked with me to find just the right balance that allowed me to experience and translate the intense emotion without alienating the audience or becoming over emotional. She helped me move through a very difficult piece, shake it off, and get ready to use my Irish accent in the next role. Susan has the ability to instill confidence, pin-point any struggles you are having as an actor, and pull emotions out of people that I have rarely seen with other directors. I would not hesitate to be in a show where Susan is the director.

Susan gave me the confidence to come out of my shell and believe in myself. She gave me a gift I will never forget.

Susan's tools for teaching acting skills are easy and fun to apply - for instance she teaches such in-depth concepts as character development through simple devices that help you create complex and interesting characters before you even realize what you are doing. She directed many shows at our local community college with a mix of experienced and brand-new actors - by the time the show opened it was very hard to tell who was the novice and who wasn't. The result was a series of extremely high quality performances.
