Thank you for visiting my web site. As sole proprietor of Stoller System, LLC, I’ve been the resident dialect designer/coach (and occasional dramaturge) at Off-Broadway’s Mint Theater Company since 1996. I did the dialect design and coaching for TONY Award Winner Jessie Mueller (as Carole King) and Jake Epstein (as Gerry Goffin) for Beautiful: The Carole King Musical on Broadway. I coached multiple-award-winner Carmen Ejogo in Coretta Scott King’s idiolect for Selma. I also work regularly with National Humanities Medalist Anna Deavere Smith, including Let Me Down Easy and other projects; currently on Notes from the Field: Doing Time in Education. I’ve done production dialect design and coaching for many other productions in New York and regional theatre, plus television projects from Mozart in the Jungle and Nurse Jackie to Dora the Explorer, documentaries, and commercials. I’ve even won an award for my work, and I’m proud to be an Officer of VASTA, the Voice and Speech Trainers Association.

Amy Stoller’s Accents (and Dramaturgy – always read this edifying part of Mint’s program) add immeasurably to atmosphere.
