Acting Up Radio – Margie Haber Hollywood’s top audition coach! & Adam Lieblein of Breakdown Services! 

Margie Haber- With over 40 years of experience

Margie Haber is known as Hollywood’s top audition coach. This this is how she began her career. Margie’s philosophy empowers actors to create strong ‘characters’ for both auditions and booked roles. And whether that is in TV, film or stage. Its about finding your own power in the lives you create.

Margie Haber has always given her all to her students. It was while teaching at the Lee Strasberg Institute in the 1970’s that she noticed actors were confident at scene study but struggling with the audition process. Using her past experience as a speech therapist combined with her acting experience Margie developed the internationally recognized Haber Phrasing™. A 10-step instinctual approach to cold reading and auditions.

The Margie Haber Studio opened in 1986 and just a few years later, two of Margie’s clients, Brad Pitt and Michael Easton, wound up testing for the same role in the film “Thelma & Louise“. That was Pitt’s career breakthrough role and she’s helped thousands of other actors do the same ever since.

How to get the part without falling apart



Based on Margie Haber’s 35 years of experience as an actress and teacher. How To Get The Part Without Falling Apart promises to take away the “three p’s” – pain, panic, and performance anxiety.

It takes away from anxiety from the cold- reading process. While giving back the “big P,” POWER, to the actor. And it is filled with real-life (and often hilarious) audition stories from her clients. And some of the nation’s leading actors, with comments and anecdotes from over fifty top industry professionals.  Also the book is divided into four sections, each dealing with a different aspect of auditioning.
