"I would recommend Spencer Glass to any one, any age, at any cross roads in the theater industry for career coaching. Not only did he help me achieve my goal of finding new representation, he helped reframe my mindset and refresh my own approach to who I am as an actor and a business person. I wouldn’t even think twice to come back to him for any advice with auditions, representation, business, or branding. 10 out of 10 would recommend"!
- Ryan Breslin, Beetlejuice (Broadway)
"Spencer is one of the best. He works so well with all ages, but he has a really sharp eye and is great at offering bite-sized specific adjustments and knowledge to help enhance young people's performances. He knows exactly what kind of material they should be working on, where they fit into the grand scheme of casting in the competitive audition world, and has a knack for connecting with people very quickly. His side business, Break the Glass, has really taken off, because he's so good at telling people the things that they need to be doing to better themselves but finds a way of doing it kindly, quickly, and efficiently."
- James Crichton, Unknown Soldier (Playwrights Horizons)
“Before meeting with Spencer, I was feeling stuck! I became so frustrated with the industry, and myself, not sure where to focus. Spencer’s guidance and counsel has been truly essential to navigating the next phase of my career. He makes me feel seen and heard, but also is able to push me and not allow me to “settle”. As an actor, having an additional person in your corner really helps lighten the load. Spencer helps me feel like I can achieve my goals and gives strong, constructive feedback, along with great action items to help move your career forward. With Spencer's continuing help, I feel empowered pursuing a career in this industry and excited for the future. "
