9780394744124
This simple and essential book about the craft of acting describes a technique developed and refined by the authors, all of them young actors, in their work with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet, actor W. H. Macy, and director Gregory Mosher. A Practical Handbook for the Actor is written for any actor who has ever experienced the frustrations of acting classes that lacked clarity and objectivity, and that failed to provide a dependable set of tools. An actor's job, the authors state, is to "find a way to live truthfully under the imaginary circumstances of the play." The ways in which an actor can attain that truth form the substance of this eloquent book.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Melissa BruderPublisher: VintagePublished: 04/12/1986ISBN: 9780394744124Pages: 112Weight: 0.25lbsSize: 7.80h x 5.10w x 0.30d
