EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

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. From the Trade Paperback edition.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

What would you do if you were walking down a street and suddenly the person beside you broke into song? You're just minding your own business and this weirdo next to you begins singing about how often he has walked this street before, but when he's done it in the past, the pavement always stayed beneath his feet. Would you assume that this man was several stories high and walk faster? While trying to get away from this potentially dangerous weirdo, you turn a corner and come face to face with a malicious street gang whose members are armed with switchblades and zip guns. Most likely you would assume you had entered some alternative reality. The key word here is reality. You are still in reality; it's just that you have entered the reality of a musical. This book will help you understand the skills and techniques required to sing and act simultaneously within the musical theater song.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Method Acting Exercises Handbook is a concise and practical guide to the acting exercises originally devised by Lee Strasberg, one of the Method's foremost practitioners. The Method trains the imagination, concentration, senses and emotions to ‘re-create’ – not ‘imitate’ – logical, believable and truthful behavior on stage and in film. Building on nearly 30 years of teaching internationally and at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York and Los Angeles, Lola Cohen details a series of specific exercises in order to provide clear instruction and guidance to this preeminent form of actor training. By integrating Strasberg's voice with her own tried and tested style of teaching, Cohen demonstrates what can be gained from the exercises, how they can inform and inspire your learning, and how they might be applied to your acting and directing practice. As a companion to The Lee Strasberg Notes (Routledge 2010), a transcription of Strasberg's own teaching, The Method Acting Exercises Handbook offers an unparalleled and updated guide to this world renowned technique.
