CHICAGO AVE STUDIO
By Public TransitWe're on the famous Chicago Ave. bus line.
Route 66. Check out www.transitchicago.com
for routes and schedules!
By CarJust a handful of blocks off I90 at Division.
The easiest way to get here, is to exit I90 at the Division exit and head west on Division. Go a few blocks until you reach Ashland (A major intersection) take a left on Ashland (heading south). Continue going south about 6 blocks until you reach Chicago Ave. Take a right on Chicago (heading west)
We are at 1915 W. Chicago!
If you are coming in from I290You can get off on Damen going north- then continue all the way (past the United Center) until you get to Chicago Ave. Take a right. We are about 2/3 of a block down. It may be easier though to take I290 to I90 north (toward Milwaukee) then follow the directions above.....
The studio is located in a two story red brick building on the south side of the street. There's only a small sign on the door- so look for the address instead of a sign! Door is on the right. Here's a Google Maps STREET VIEW (we are the red building behind the tree). Metered parking is typically pretty easy. Pick our brains when you get here and we'll share with you cheaper ways to park in the area if you're willing to walk a couple of blocks. Meters are only in effect until 9pm.
RAVENSWOOD AVE STUDIO3701 N. Ravenswood Ave. #201
Chicago, IL 60613
By Public TransitWe're two blocks from the famous Brown line Addison or Irving Park stops.
Check out www.transitchicago.com
for routes and schedules!
By CarJust 2.5 miles off I90 at Addison Exit.
The easiest way to get here, is to exit I90 at the Addison exit and head east on Addison. Go about 2 miles until you reach Ravenswood. It's a big huge 6 corner intersecion underneath the metra train tracks. Ravenswood is a split road- you wanna take the LEFT turn PAST the tracks (the east side of the tracks!) We are at 3701 N. Ravenswood.
The studio is located in a very long two story red timber loft on the east side of the street. We are at the south end door. buzz the buzzer for #201.
BEWARE of cubs parking restrictions on game nights!!! Check the cubs schedule for night game dates. Probably easiest on those nights is to park two block WEST or NORTH. If you are west of the metra tracks or north of Irving Park rd you don't have to worry about the parking zoning on those nights (but watch out for regular neighborhood zoning!) Come a bit early the first night to get the lay of the land for parking in this area. There is parking available- but you kinda gotta figure out the routine and be willing to walk a couple of blocks. On first glance the neighborhood may look a bit industrial if you haven't been here before- but it's a very popular neighborhood and pretty darn comfortable. Very walkable. Pick our brains when you get here and we'll share with you cheaper ways to park in the area if you're willing to walk a couple of blocks. Meters are only in effect until 9pm.
If there is one motto that sums up the actor’s dilemma it is, “hurry up and wait.” You spend most of your time waiting for that next audition, or rehearsal, or performance.

There are ways to put that “waiting” to work. Read more

It’s been great watching Courtney Rioux navigate her acting career from early on. I first met her when she took one of our on camera commercial classes years ago. She’s was a great actor even back then, and she really took up the technical aspects required of effective storytelling. Like any young actor, she had frustrations with the ups and downs of the business, and I remember one conversation we had when I offered a simple piece of advice that she actually implemented….Read more
