Reviews - What do our customers think?
Highly Recommended  Jul 15, 2001
The first part of this book defines concepts important to the art of acting. It also teaches the reader the fundamentals of Method Acting. Colyer outlines, in the second section of the book, the tried and true fail-safe technique of creating a multidimensional, believably human character. The next section of the book gives advice about playing your character's role within the dramatic action. The reader learns how to put a director's blocking to creative use, how to score actor's work to each beat of the playwright's text and how to allow the character to express themselves emotionally. And the final chapter is a list of plays within which to find the most interesting and challenging characters for the reader to create. This book is in its 3rd edition and it is easy to see why it has become a classic.
 
Intro to Strasbergian acting  Jun 19, 2001
This is a good book to present to a young actor who seems to be serious when he or she says, "I want to be an actor." Carlton Colyer, who worked at the Actors Studio and has taught for decades, presents some hard facts about the discipline and preparation involved, the need for complete frankness and honesty with oneself as you market yourself and select material, and the necessity of access to your personal emotional process. He outlines his method in beautiful detail, like a workbook.

Wonderful, as far as it goes. Colyer's teaching is squarely in the tradition of Lee Strasberg, and his workbook emphasizes emotional work over other important aspects. There is an approach that rejects what may be called "artificial" (but could still be theatrical!). It remains to a large extent dualistic about an actor and emotions, as if an actor may at a given moment be having a "wrong" emotion or none at all. Also, with its frankness about marketing (which divides people into either/or categories such as "lead" versus "character"), one should not heed too well the advice to accept the divisions and define oneself by the gaze of the casting director.

 
Great book!  May 11, 2001
Great book get it! You won't be sorry!
 
Great book for actors!  May 11, 2001
I'm a young actress! I found this book, no one had reviewed it, so I decided to so: This is a great book for actors that want to practice acting using exercises. I love this book. It's a must have for any actor.
