Sullivan Jones use of technology

Sullivan Jones uses an audio recording program called Twisted Wave to record the other actors’ lines for each of his scenes. There’s no shortcut to learning lines other than drilling them ad nauseam, so by using this program, I am able to run lines anytime, in real time, without having to ask someone to read the other parts. I have found it to be one of the more efficient ways of practicing lines says Sullivan
