5.0 out of 5 stars Great for teachers of drama too!, Sept. 24 2002
Not only useful for the "serious adult" improv artist--as a drama teacher who works with underprivileged kids I find this the best book out there for helping them develop a sense of "mastery" on stage, a drama more alive to them than memorizing lines. Recommended for anyone who works with young actors!

This review is from: Killing Monsters (Hardcover)
As a drama teacher who works with a lot of urban and low-income young people, this book really helped me understand why they're drawn tothe kinds of stories they are, where it works well and where it can go wrong, and how to get positively involved in their imaginations. Recommended to anyone who works with kids!

5.0 out of 5 stars My bible!, Sept. 23 2002
As a teacher of drama to many low-income, urban, and "difficult" adolescents, this is the book that I find most useful, alive, and inspiring! Simply wonderful for anyone trying to bring the best out of young actors!
