Reviews

"A hands-on approach. Stanislavski and the Actor incorporates exercises, improvisations and other notes handed down by Irina Novitskaya, one of the maestro's assistants's from the short-lived Opera-Dramatic Studio in the 1930's. Benedetti, author of Stanislavski: A Biography, modernizes the vocabulary and references, and fleshes the material out with his own summary of the great man's system." -- American Theatre

"Overall the book is fascinating…" -- Theatre Journal

"Students beginning the study of acting often need a primer about Konstantin Stanislavski--who he was and an overview of theories he crafted for the training of actors…For novice actors, and the teachers who are about to introduce them to Stanslavski, this title is perfect…Every undergraduate library supporting theatre studies should own this first-level introduction to Stanislavski. It is also a terrific book to give to freshman-level acting students as they walk in the door." -- Choice
