The Actor Speaks: Voice and the Performer
In The Actor Speaks, Patsy Rodenburg takes actors and actresses, both professional and beginners, through a complete voice workshop. She touches on every aspect of performance work that involves the voice and sorts through the kinds of vexing problems every performer faces onstage: breath and relaxation; vocal range and power; communication with other actors; singing and acting simultaneously; working on different sized stages and in both large and small auditoriums; approaching the vocal demands of different kinds of scripts. This is the final word on the actor's voice and it's destined to become the classic work on the subject for some time to come.

Many years ago I worked in the theatre as a director and I also taught voice classes. This was like a bible to me. Patsy knows exactly what she is talking about and is one of the best in the business. Read full review

This is a great book so far...the material is a bit dense, but that is to be expected. This is sortof a textbook, a compedium of the author's teachings. Read full review
