Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Paul Newman, Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Hopper, Robert DeNiro, Marilyn Monroe, and Joanne Woodward-these are only a few of the many actors trained in "Method" acting by the great and legendary Lee Strasberg. This revolutionary theory of acting-developed by Stanislavsky and continued by Strasberg-has been a major influence on the art of acting in our time. During his last decade, Strasberg devoted himself to a work that would explain once and for all what The Method was and how it worked, as well as telling the story of its development and of the people involved with it. The result is a masterpiece of wisdom and guidance for anyone involved with the theater in any way. .

Noted director Strasberg (1901-1982) explores the nature of creativity in the acting process and provides the first authentic description of "The Method" as developed by Constantin Stanislavsky and continued by Strasberg himself in the Group Theatre and Actor's Studio. In this short work, he shows how Stanislavsky's teachings changed his life; describes his own discoveries and procedures; provides specific examples of the uses of imagination, tension, relaxation, emotional memory, anticipation and control; proposes various methods of training; comments on the acting styles of his contemporaries as well as on the nonrealistic styles of Antonin Artaud, Bertolt Brecht and Jerzy Grotowski. Essential reading for actors, directors and students of theater. Photos not seen by PW.
