Academy of Art University School of Acting instructor Clark Houston Lewis was more interested in music than theater when he was growing up. But after earning a degree in choral conducting from the Juilliard School, he gravitated to acting in off-Broadway and regional East Coast productions. He also started coaching other actors and singers. His clients have included stars like Marisa Tomei and other lead actors appearing in Broadway musicals such as A Chorus Line and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. After moving to Los Angeles, he continued coaching and also directed numerous plays, films and television shows.
