Reviews

"The most complete survey to date of the available physical components of modern actor training. Invaluable." George Morrison, former president, the New Actor Works, former emeritus professor, SUNY Purchase

"This wonderful, eclectic book offers both theoretical and practical insights to actors, directors, and students, while providing fascinating insights to anyone who seeks a greater understanding of the process of creating theater. We often speak of the need to move beyond the seminal work of Stanislavski. For those who wish to do so, Ms. Potter has furnished us with an excellent roadmap." Barbara MacKenzie-Wood, head of acting/music theater, Carnegie Mellon University

"A marvelous, instructive, and coherent sourcebook. It brings back memories of my own experiences, working with Mme. Fedro and her stick and learning the lessons of the Alexander Technique, during those exhilarating days of rigorous physical training for a lifelong career." Lisa Eichborn, internationally renowned actress and two-time Golden Globe and BAFTA nominee

"A timely collection of essays, which synthesizes a broad range of movement techniques that have deeply influenced performance training. The authors' passions are palpable, their information clearly articulated, and their expertise firmly grounded as their insights add to the growing interdisciplinary study of the body." Robert H. Vorlicky, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University
