Overview
By Tim McDonough. The actor as storyteller. This book clearly demostrates that any memorable performance needs far more than acting technique alone. Speeches, both classical and contemporary, are used to reveal how an actor can discover the inherent energy, essence and the subtextual colors of every word and sentence of a dramatic speech. In eighteen chapters actor/director/teacher Tim McDonough defines in depth how an actor can find the often overlooked subtleties that create characters with dimension and moments of heightened reality. The text's four sections teach the actor how to create radiant, dramatic imagery with: 1. Story Sense, 2. Sound Sense, 3. Shape Sense, 4. Inner Conflict Developed by Layering Together Opposite Energies. Adaptable as a supplementary text for courses in acting from the secondary to the graduate level.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great, Grand, Fantastic  Nov 22, 2002
I think this book was a wonderful read for any actor or director, it lets you get back to the basics of acting: storytelling. Tim has a nice way of writing the book so that both a professional and a newbie can take something away from his book and apply it to thier approach. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone in the acting profession.
 
Go Get This Book  Nov 14, 2002
You're bound to deeply appreciate this book. Tim McDonough has a intelligent and clear-eyed approach to speeches and monologues.

What is good about it: he's a no-nonsense writer, stressing clarity above all else. He has a deceptively simple understanding of how acting relates to storytelling that is truly wise, unique and fascinating.

This book will provide experienced and greenhand actors alike with a solid, grounded basis for digging into the plummiest of narrative speeches. It would be an eye-opener for an actor, a director or a teacher of these crafts.

For young actors -- or anyone looking to focus and improve their audition pieces -- this book will be your bible. Get your hands on it quick.
