A directing member of The Actors Studio and their Artist-In-Residence, TODD MITCHELL FELDERSTEIN continues an award-winning career in film, tv and theatre.

Casts included Oscar and Tony winners from Broadway to Hollywood such as: Oscar winner Alan Arkin, Oscar nominated director Mark Rydell, Tony winner Poetri, Robert Hays, Susan Sullivan, Mitch Ryan, David Selby, Stan Davis and dozens of others. Encore Theatre Group tapped him to realize SHE KILLS MONSTERS first online and then at the Warner Grand Theater. In television, Todd served as a writer on the SPIDER-MAN animated series for Sony TV starring Neil Patrick Harris in the title role and co-wrote the episode The Sword of Shikata  which was voiced by Gina Gershon.
