Acting is Believing
Wadsworth/Thomson Learning, 2004 - Performing Arts - 300 pages
ACTING IS BELIEVING emphasizes that "an actor must believe to make his audience believe." ACTING IS BELIEVING is a classic text in the field, having been used by many generations of actors and now updated to speak to a new generation of acting students. It has a strong theoretical grounding, while providing numerous exercises to help the acting student apply the key concepts of actor training. It maintains the three-part structure of Actor; the Actor and The Play; and The Actor and the Production.
