Living it up on setThank 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 (New York, National Tour, and PBS’s Great Performances), and various other projects—you can see me working with Anna on HBO’s MasterClass. I’ve done production design and coaching for many other productions in New York and regional theatre, plus television projects from Nurse Jackie to Dora the Explorer, documentaries, and commercials. I’ve also won an award for my work, and I’m proud to be an Officer of VASTA, the Voice and Speech Trainers Association.

On stage now: Notes from the Field: Doing Time in Education, The California Chapter, written and performed by Anna Deavere Smith, runs through August 2 at Berkeley Rep’s Roda Theatre. As always in my work with Anna, I am coaching idiolects, the individual speech patterns of the real people she embodies in performance. This requires a lot of detailed analysis of each speaker, and a lot of attention to that detail during rehearsals, performances, and coaching sessions. And then Anna makes it look easy!

  

On screen: “Vigilante Jones,” my episode of Nurse Jackie (SHO), is available on YouTube and Showtime Anytime, and you can see it right here! I loved working with Purva Bedi on the Kutchi language (6’06” & 13’22”), and Betty Gilpin on the Norwegian language (19’09”).

On stage soon: Dialect design/coaching & dramaturgy for Harold Chapin’s The New Morality, running August 22–October 11 Off-Broadway at the Mint.

On Blu-Ray & DVD: Selma. I’m proud of my work with Carmen Ejogo, winner of an NAACP Image Award and a Black Reel Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress, and of my association with this fine film.
