Joe Blute“After working with Denise Simon in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and an industry showcase, I can say that I am truly blessed to have come across such a marvelous women. Not only is she a pleasure to work with but her knowledge and command over the arts is something astonishing that EVERY actor should be exposed to. I can safely say that she has been vital to my training and made me a much better actor in the time that I have known her.”
