5.0 von 5 Sternen "Action", not acting
I am a firm believer that there is no one "right" way to be an actor. However, I *do* think that actors should expose themselves to many different schools of thought and find what works for them. So whether you are a Meisnerian, a Stanislavski-ite, or a Hagenist, you owe it to yourself to read this. It is what I would call "de-constructionist"...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Sorry, no.
The book shows you a way to analyze scenes and characters in a specific way and provides you with a rather easy 'method' for acting, I would call it the "intention-method". The authors say, that you can apply this to nearly EVERY scene. Unfortunately, I found many plays and characters, where it simply doesn't work, solo plays, modern plays, even some characters in some...

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Action", not acting, 15. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Practical Handbook for the Actor (Vintage) (Taschenbuch)
I am a firm believer that there is no one "right" way to be an actor. However, I *do* think that actors should expose themselves to many different schools of thought and find what works for them. So whether you are a Meisnerian, a Stanislavski-ite, or a Hagenist, you owe it to yourself to read this. It is what I would call "de-constructionist" acting technique -- breaking things down to their essential elements of action and intent. I was never able to get my mind around some of the more esoteric elements of other acting methods, but this one made sense to me. You may also want to read "True and False" by David Mamet, as it provides some of the philosophical underpinnings for this approach to acting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Makes the"Method" make sense!, 29. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Practical Handbook for the Actor (Vintage) (Taschenbuch)
Without a doubt this book makes sense. From the opening paragraph of David Mamets Foreword to the final chapter, this book will have you shaking your head in agreement or shouting out "That's Right!!!" This is a book for anyone just starting out in acting who wants to start off right. It is also a book for those who have studied, taken courses, workshops and been around the block enough times to be confused by the amount of BS some teachers will feed you for their weekly fee. O.K. so after you have read the book you will realize that it doesn't really preach the method. But this book does follow in the footsteps and along the same ideals if not practices of the greats like Sanford Meisner, Micheal Chekov and David Mamet.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Use This Book Well!, 28. November 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Practical Handbook for the Actor (Vintage) (Taschenbuch)
No matter what you think of David Mamet's aesthetic or opinions, he knows the basics of acting. 'A Practical Handbook for the Actor' is just that. Whether you're just starting out or are feeling stuck while you rehearse for that new Broadway phenomenon, this is the book for you. The common sense in this book is refreshing from all those "just feel it" methods, no pun intended.
The best thing about this book is that it is a handbook, not a rule book. No matter what your training is, you will find this book helpful in the begining stages of working on a text from the actor's viewpoint.
I use this book for myself and whenever I teach at the Seattle Children's Theatre and have yet to know of anyone's discontent.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another Acting Triumph, 8. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Practical Handbook for the Actor (Vintage) (Taschenbuch)
If you've read True and False by David Mamet, this book is a great one to read right after. It explains the finer points of 'acting-style.' No matter what you read, as an actor, there are always questions about 'script analysis' and character development. This book almost answers any questions you could have, not by just explaining the answers, but guiding you so that eventually you can easily find the answers yourself.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Sorry, no., 18. Mai 2005
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Practical Handbook for the Actor (Vintage) (Taschenbuch)
The book shows you a way to analyze scenes and characters in a specific way and provides you with a rather easy 'method' for acting, I would call it the "intention-method". The authors say, that you can apply this to nearly EVERY scene. Unfortunately, I found many plays and characters, where it simply doesn't work, solo plays, modern plays, even some characters in some old comedies can't be done with this approach. You have always a different set of characters, of different status, with different 'action-level' etc. Or imagine playing someone who is totally bored for some reason, this book wouldn't be any help. Or think of modern plays, where your feelings, wishes and actions might no be logically connected...
Maybe the book is a good start for beginners, but anyone who's already 'inside' I'd say 'hands off'...
