Product description


Witty, unassuming... Anyone involved in actor training is likely to find this book a welcome breath of fresh air because its approach is so gloriously unpretentious. And yet it contains a wealth of Abbot's enormous experience as actor, director and teacher. --The Stage

For actors, teachers or trainee actors, whichever hat you put on you can see how useful it would be... In other words, in this incredibly informative book, Abbott enables us to have our cake and eat it (several times over.)... This book is crammed with ideas you may not know or which may serve as useful re-alerts to what you're doing... Abbott's book is one nobody should ignore. --reviewsgate.com
