Product Description

About the Author

Constantin Stanislavski (1863-1938) was a Russian director who sought 'inner realism' by insisting that his actors find the truth within themselves and 'become' the characters they portrayed. His work brought international fame to the Moscow Art Theatre, which he had co-founded with Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko in 1897. During his early years at the Moscow Art Theatre, he directed the first productions of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya (1899), Three Sisters (1901) and The Cherry Orchard (1904) as well as a series of celebrated versions of Shakespeare. Stanislavski toured America with the company in 1923. After World War II, the US edition of Stanislavski's treatise An Actor Prepares (1926) became a bible of the Method school of acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The BEST! 26 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book shocked me. In buying it I had envisioned receiving an "okay" book. I was so wrong. This book is incredible. I found myself highlighting/making notes/and never letting the book close. This book helps the actor who really, really needs help. It sounds odd, but this book can make you an incredible actor. True, it can't start you in Hollywood! However it provides insight on how to be a great actor, no matter if Hollywood becons. Buy the book, you won't be disappointed! I promise

5.0 out of 5 stars Completes Stanislavski's classic series 21 Oct. 2005
By The Actor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is another "must-read" for actors. This is the third and final book in his classic trilogy, and shows how to apply the techniques in his first and second book to creating a role. Very practical; this trilogy completely transformed my acting almost overnight. You do not need to have an instuctor to show you how to use this technique; much of it you can do on your own. Strongly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good 26 Jun. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is nothing "simple" about acting & this wordy, detailed book will prove it. Though written in so much deep detail that it can be off-putting to some, if you are serious about acting you will learn so much necessary skill from this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars ESSENTIAL READING FOR ANY ACTOR 9 Mar. 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Essential training for anyone interested in acting, personally, as an amateur or professional.

One of three books written by Stanislavski that, together, form the basis of the greatest set of acting techniques ever devised.

Thorough, thought-provoking, and well-crafted, Stanislavski is the patron saint of modern acting. This is Method. Outside of these three books everything is extrapolation or interpretation.

The pictured edition is not at all the most beautiful or inviting, but its all about the text and what you put into the study of that work. Stanislavski in a nutshell...you put in the time, do the work...you get genuine result. Thoroughly recommended.

The C in the trilogy of books on acting by Stanislavski, every actor should have in their library.
