Format: Hardcover
If you are familiar with the International Phonetic Alphabet, this is not the book for you. The "phonetic" spellings used in the book are just confusing, and seemingly pointless, as there is an extensive explanation of IPA in the back of the book, albeit with unintelligibly written symbols.
The book is also difficult to find in combination with the two cassette tapes that go with it, and without them, the book is rather useless. The cassette tapes are where the real information lies, and the book is merely a companion with explanations of how to use the tapes and transcripts of the conversations and monologues as heard on the tapes.
I say, save your money. Rent a video with your preferred dialect instead.

I found, "Dialects for the Stage" not only helpful in equiping aspiring actors and actresses with the necessary information towards a believably authenic dialect, but also the book is wonderful for the student who is interested in dialect coaching. The hardback feature makes it a excellent resource for years to come.

Great help for actors May 14 2007
By Jan H. Wolfe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Learning a dialect for the stage is a difficult thing to do, but this book and CD make it easier. There are detailed descriptions for the advanced speaker and wonderful exercises for the beginning to intermediate actor. A must for directors to keep in their libraries.
