This is the classic lexicon of Stanislavski's most important concepts, all in the master's own words. Upon its publication in 1963, An Actor's Handbook quickly established itself as an essential guide for actors and directors. Culling key passages from Stanislavski's vast output, this book covers more than one hundred and fifty key concepts, among them 'Improvisation', 'External Technique', 'Magic If', 'Imaginary Objects', 'Discipline', 'What Is My System?' and 'Stage Fright'.
This reissued, attractively packaged edition will be an essential book for any performer.
""An Actor's Handbook is part of the equipment of every man [and woman] of the theatre, because it deals with all the problems of creative acting. . . . Stanislavski does not invite you to subservient awe, but to deep understanding, initiative, revision and progress." -Michel Saint-Denis ." . . a basic part of any theatre library." -"Los Angeles Times
