Book Description

Oct. 3 1990 Vintage
The audition is the first -- and most essential -- test of any actor's craft, one that is typically performed for a very tough audience, under conditions that are always less than perfect. This practical, hands-on guide by a veteran producer covers every aspect of the auditioning process: the monologue, the cold reading, the musical audition, and the interview. It shows actors how to see their performance through the eyes of prospective employers, how to sell themselves even before they step into character, and how to Interpret roles without outside direction.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some great stuff, some ridiculous. Oct. 2 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Mr. Black has obviously spent many hours honing auditioning techniques for various mediums, and the crux of this book, the actual auditioning technique, is invaluable. However, there are chapters later in the book which I feel are full of some of the most dreadful advice ever given to a young actor. Such as, don't be yourself in an interview: act like other people, hang around theater companies and agencies without appointments, and perform all of you audition pieces for fellow actors who may not know any more about acting than you. 90% of this book is great stuff, but the 10% that is not is so off base that it makes you question the rest.

An actor failing to audition well, fails to get hired! Then never gets to use his/her craft. This easy to read "handbook" gets you through each step of auditioning, in all the arenas (stage, movies, commercials). Mr. Wallachs introductions is poignant. Pay attention.

There are too many books on acting out there. This is definitely one every serious actor should have in their library. Really good stuff in here.
