“Karen was an incredible help in my preparations for the Lotte Lenya Competition. Her attention to each detail of the text helped me to be specific and focused. More than just an acting coach, her musicality and experience with singing actors made it so easy to communicate my needs and concerns when dealing with a multitude of genres ranging from opera to contemporary MT. Her generosity, patience and encouragement continues to be invaluable.”

Alison Arnopp (3rd prize in the Lotte Lenya Competition in NY 2013, played Dusty in Dusty the Musical at the Charing Cross Theatre, currently in The Magician’s Elephant at the RSC)

“The opportunity of working with Karen is invaluable. Her ability to analyse, communicate and her can-do attitude ensures she gets the very best out of you.”

Jane Quinn played Jennyanydots/Gumbie Cat in Cats at the London Palladium.

“Karen’s ability to get to know you as an actor is invaluable. Her meticulous and sensitive approach as a coach and director, together with her vast knowledge and understanding of the text, has been paramount in my securing work with the RSC. Our sessions leading up to my auditions allowed me to make informed and educated decisions about the characters, and to be able to back them up with a holistic understanding of the plays and their contexts. I owe her much!”

Guy Hughes RSC actor 2015

“The work I have done and continue to do with Karen Rabinowitz has been invaluable to me. I am yet to meet anyone who understands so keenly what a performer needs, and can so deftly draw out the life of any aria or song. She has taught me to trust my instincts which has proven a great source of confidence, and her knowledge and experience in the Music Theatre and operatic repertory is exceptional.”

Robin Bailey (2nd prize in the Lotte Lenya Competition in NY 2015)

“Working with Karen was one of the most helpful experiences I had in London. I had just moved from Italy and wanted to audition for a musical theatre school. With Karen’s help and assistance I managed to get into the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. As an Italian actress it was not easy. In our lessons Karen helped not only on my English pronunciation but most of all I was able to find the confidence I needed. I would definitely recommend her as a teacher!”

Tullia Pagano

“Karen a ce talent rare de pouvoir inspirer les autres, elle sait laisser l’espace à l’artiste, ou encore, diriger avec precision. Ses qualités artistiques et humaines, son expérience, font que travailler avec Karen est un vrai plaisir.”

Maryse Boiteau, (Actress and Director, Paris)
