“Liz Caplan’s skill with singers & actors is unparalleled. What makes me a huge fan & devoted supporter is how she integrates the voice with the full body. She teaches full-body singing to wholly realize the vocal potential of her students, unleashing the best sound each specific person can create.”
- Michael Arden

Jeremy Pope and Ephraim Sykes of Ain’t Too Proud Interview Each Other
"What everyone’s not telling you is that we have all hands on deck. So, during intermission, everyone has a physical therapist that’s here stretching out our bodies. We get IV drips once a week because our bodies are so dehydrated. We have vocal lessons with a beautiful vocal goddess named Liz Caplan who basically helps us maintain. While it’s a blessing to be doing this job, it’s hard. It’s eight shows a week. It’s fuckin’ entertainment. It’s little things like that that keep us extra hype right now. Again, I don’t think I could do this show without my brothers, the five of us, without Ephraim. It is a relay race that we are kind of passing the baton on to each other at different moments in the show and in this life. Just being there for each other and holding it down so that we can get through this amazing time in our life."   Excerpt from a Vman article on Tony Nominees Jeremy Pope and Ephraim Sykes from Ain't Too Proud

Greatest Showman: Interview with Star Hugh Jackman

Click here to read the full article. (photo credits: 20th Century Fox)   Live Singing  HJ: I am more comfortable singing live than in a recording studio, but I’ve spent hours in the recording studio.  We even built a recording studio during our 10 week rehearsal process so that if at any point anyone felt comfortable to go and sing, we’d just go up and record.  I have no idea how many takes those poor engineers have gone through, but, you know, I worked with Liz Caplan, a different singing teacher, to get a slightly different style because we cross over between a pop world and a theatre world.  It’s somewhere in between and we wanted the style to reflect that and it is a lot more work than you think.

10 Things You May Not Know: James Monroe Iglehart of ‘Aladdin’
Check out this interview with 2014 Tony Winner, James Monroe Iglehart, now currently starring as Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton!   The key to being Genie The challenge of the role is that it’s very vigorous. It’s like being shot out of a cannon. Once you are on stage you are on and you are constantly at a high-energy pace from the moment you start and I have to keep myself well hydrated, I have to get lots of sleep. I have to make sure my voice is well-rested, but also warmed up. The main thing is just the wear and tear of doing it every single night at that high of a pace. I have a wonderful vocal coach, named Liz Caplan, who I go see every Thursday and she’s wonderful. She makes sure that my voice stays the way it is and my muscles in my voice stay the way they are. I make sure that I am on a high protein diet because I’m a bigger guy, so I have to stay big because it’s kind of fun watching a big guy do a cartwheel. Watching a skinny guy do a cartwheel, you’re not really that impressed and I’ve got to make sure I have tons of water in me. Make sure I get at least 7 and a half hours of sleep, 8 is what I would really like, but if I can get 7 and a half I’ll take that. Also, I do my best to get to the gym at least twice a week. What I mean by that is I’m on a bike, I am not a muscle gym rat, but I like to get on the bike and do my stuff. I also say my lines and stuff on the bike. Also, I do “Friend Like Me” in my head every single night before I do a show. I do a mock version of it in my dressing room every night before the show just to keep myself fresh to know what I’m going to do.

Off Script: How Denee Benton Survives All Those Stairs in ‘Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812’
Click here to read the Hollywood Reporter article on Denee Benton, and how she manages to sing so beautifully  while maneuvering around the many staircases of Great Comet's set!   You’re in nearly every number. How do you manage? This is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, vocally and emotionally. I’ve been training with the voice teacher Liz Caplan, and Dr. Lucian Sulica at Weill Cornell Med has been monitoring my vocal folds. Plus, lots of physical therapy. It’s a marathon, and that’s without all the stairs. While rehearsing, a lot of the stairs were just different colors of tape diagrammed on the floor, so most of the planning was finished during tech week. So I started seeing a speech pathologist and we’d do the vocal exercises in the stairwell of the building, just to get my body used to breathing, singing and running at the same time. The first few weeks, I certainly felt like I got hit by a bus at all times, but I can now finish a show and be okay.

John Gallagher Jr. On ‘Newsroom’ Dialogue And Staging Green Day (NPR)
John Gallagher speaks a bit about his work with Liz on American Idiot: In HBO's The Newsroom, John Gallagher Jr. plays Jim Harper, the senior producer of the nightly cable news program anchored by Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels). The show's second season, which began in July, takes place in 2012 during the presidential primaries. Ever since the start of the series, Gallagher's character has been in a will-they-or-won't-they relationship with one of the young producers of the news show. Right now, it's looking to him like they won't, and in an attempt to get away from the woman who's broken his heart, he's decided to go on the campaign trail and report from the Mitt Romney bus. But he soon discovers there's nothing to report, just repetitive stump speeches and daily spin delivered by Romney campaign aides on the bus. In a recent episode, Jim tried to get some real answers out of the aides, and ended up getting thrown off the bus.... Click here for the full article!
