Lessons: The Craft of Acting

Truthful human behavior on stage and screen
By: Tom Isbell

Age Level: All Ages

Definitely not a "how-to" book! This drama book articulates the intangible -- how to capture lightning in a jar. It works to develop awareness in order to help the aspiring actor evolve, grow, and mature as a performer. Acting is an art that comes from oneself -- no tricks, no special techniques. Every great artist begins as a craftsman then develops into an artist. Each of the 100 plain-speaking lessons in this book is brief and deals with an essential truth. The book is divided into 5 sections: Approach, Fundamentals, Classes and Rehearsals, Performance, and Final Lessons. This is not a traditional textbook. Instead it’s a supplemental work for students and professionals.

(216 pages, 5½ x 8½, paperback)
