About Me

Benjamin Bass is a queer multi-disciplinary artist living in Philadelphia, as well as the founder of Broken Mirror Studio. 

They hold a B.F.A. in acting from S.U.N.Y. Purchase and have been fortunate enough to both work and continue training all over the world.  Notable works include "We Own This City" (HBO Max), "Audrey's Children", the Obie award winning hit, "The Woodsman", Trey Lyford's "The Accountant" and the Chinese national tour of, "One Starry Night." Benjamin is a proud member of both Actor's Equity Association and the Screen Actor's Guild.

As a performer I feel myself drawn to characters that are difficult to relate to. The broken and battered, monsters and mice, the hopeless hopefuls. Characters that don't fit like a glove and more like someone else's sweaty coat. I find the challenge of approaching characters that feel slightly beyond my reach, and the process of discovering where exactly both of our hearts meet, to be an exhilarating and humbling adventure.

As an educator Benjamin is the head instructor at Broken Mirror Studio.  They have taught classes for N.Y.U., S.U.N.Y. Purchase, University of the Arts, University of Pennsylvania, as well at various other studios throughout NY and Philadelphia.
