Kate Mulgrew (Galina “Red” Reznikov) firmly believes that inmates imaginations have the ability to free them from their circumstances. As a directing board member of the Stella Adler Studio of Acting, Mulgrew is taking the initiative to make a difference in inmates’ lives. Mic.com reports:
According to a story in AM New York, Stella Adler is about to enter its second year offering acting classes in New York’s Rikers Island jail complex. It’s no small potatoes program, either: The classes have a hugely positive impact on its students.
Inmates report that this experience is the best thing to come out of Rikers Island.
