This edition marks the 40th Anniversary ofthis classic and comprehensive introduction to acting. With this new edition, Benedetti continues to provide wide-ranging insight into the techniques and demands of acting today. Centered on the concept of action, The Actor at Work covers all the major skills of the actor, including voice, speech, movement, analysis and role-playing. Using many ideas from contemporary psychology and various physical and spiritual disciplines, this text helps the reader uncover and develop the actors within themselves, as it encourages self-discovery through participatory activities and exercises.


Explores the fundamentals and all aspects of acting, with an emphasis on preparation. Describes the process of developing and assuming a character, and all stages of rehearsal from the initial audition to the adjustments made after the first performance. The latest edition attempts a more direct, simpler text, and spends more time addressing the needs of the camera. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
