Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Practiced by such actors of stature as Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Julie Harris, Dustin Hoffman, and Ellen Burstyn (not to mention the late James Dean) the Method offers a practical application of the renowned Stanislavsky technique.
On Method Acting demystifies the "mysteries" of Method acting -- breaking down the various steps into clear and simple terms, including chapters on:
Sense Memory -- the most vital component of Method acting
Improvisation -- without it, the most integral part of the Method is lost
Animal Exercises -- just one way to combat the mental blocks that prevent actors from grasping a character
Creating The Outer Character -- so actors can give the freshness of originality to a role while at the same time living the life of the character
On Method Acting is also an indispensable volume for directors, designers, lighting technicians, and anyone in the dramatic arts interested in creating a believable and realistic effect in their productions. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

This book has taught me how to be a method actor. Until I read this book I was strugglling with my acting, I could never really find the charactor. But with this book I was able to analize a charactor successfully. And as a result I have improved my acting skills and gotten larger and better parts in plays. I highly recomend this book if you're struggling with your acting or if you are just staarting to explore the world of acting. It's a great place to start.

HASH(0x9e37acb4) out of 5 stars The definitive book "On Method Acting"! Jan. 12 2009
By Jill Place - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As a past student and employee of Lee Strasberg and a Method acting coach myself for over 30 years, this is the one book I always recommend to my students. Y'know how the explanations in some books are so simple and clear that you continually have "A-HA!" moments when you read them? This is one of those books. Of course, you need to work with a good coach who knows their stuff and can give to learned feedback to really internalize any acting technique. That's one of the reasons that Lee was such a great teacher. But, as a Method text, this is tops!

HASH(0x9b474f18) out of 5 stars Excellent information!!!! Oct. 13 2008

This book was most informative. I am currently taking acting classes and it follows the formal training I am receiving and gave even more information than my instructor has so far. I am very pleased.

I have read book twice. It looks small book such as booklet at the beginning but includes really deep information about method acting.
I highly recommend everybody interested in method acting.

HASH(0x9b5909e4) out of 5 stars Clarity April 10 2013
By La Femme Fatal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
People say that you can't learn acting from books. I say this book has given me greater clarity on "methods" than some of my teachers who reference vaguely towards things like "sense memory" and "personalize". Way better than the majority of popular books on acting!
