"Patsy Rodenburg is the most respected voice coach in Britain. . . a dynamo of thoughts, suggestions and exercises. . . Ms. Rodenburg's work is never theoretical, always practical. . ." ----Mel Gussow, "The New York Times""Patsy Rodenburg wants to free your voice so that you can express yourself fully and honestly." ----Sir Ian McKellen
Beginning with what every first-year acting student faces in class and ending with what leading professional actors must achieve every night on the three stages of the Royal National Theatre, Patsy Rodenburg's celebrated work as one of the world's foremost voice and acting coaches is fully revealed in this thoughtful and inspirational book about the process of acting. Through a seven-step process, she takes the actor through an intensive voice and speech workshop tackling the vexing problems faced in rehearsal and on stage: breathing and relaxation; vocal range and power, communication with other actors and the audience; integrating movement, singing and speaking; deciphering and animating a text; adjusting voice to different size stages and auditoria; working in mediums beyond the stage; sustaining a performance through an entire evening and a long run and identifying and overcoming the countless potential problems that face every performer who works in front of an audience. "The Actor Speaks is a stimulating read and an invaluable reference for all actors a landmark book" (The Stage)See all Product description
