The Actor's Eye: Seeing and Being Seen : a Fundamental Text
(Applause Books). With this landmark compilation of classes and exercises, anyone can afford to be coached by the man whose students are propelled from his legendary classes at Northwestern University to Broadway and Hollywood. "Acting is as simple as brick-laying and as great as Leonardo da Vinci's art," writes Downs. The Downs approach coaches the actor to make the essential connections between his character and the forces that govern him so that "craft is inevitable and art is made possible."
