Acting Is Believing
Cengage Learning, Jan 1, 2011 - Performing Arts - 320 pages
Emphasizing that an actor must believe to make his audience believe, ACTING IS BELIEVING remains one of the classic texts in the field. Charles McGaw's and Larry D. Clark's earlier editions influenced generations of actors, and this Eleventh Edition has been completely updated by Kenneth Stilson inspiring today's future professionals. The textbook now includes an expanded theoretical grounding and numerous new and revised exercises to help today's acting student apply the key concepts of a Stanislavski-based training program as interpreted through the eyes of twenty-first century artists.
