Book: $14.99
Type: Books and Resource
Genres: Directing, Teaching Tools
Synopsis
Fear grips many American actors and directors faced with the opportunity to perform Shakespeare live. The challenges of Elizabethan British speech patterns, the thought of using verse for hours, the debate over staging a period piece versus "updating" the Bard of Avon-all can cause psychogenic trauma on this side of the Atlantic. In Shakespeare for American Actors and Directors, Aaron Frankel defines and asserts the acting tools by which American actors may freshly and truly illuminate Shakespeare. He applies these tools to example scenes, discusses director choices, as well as the execution of those choices. He even addresses myths about what accents are most appropriate for Shakespearean characters. Finally, he plunges readers into the meaning of scenes, so that they can experiment with their roles to best convey those meanings. Frankel's thirty years leading a professional Shakespeare workshop at Uta Hagen-Herbert Berghof (HB) Studio in New York City gives him a distinct advantage when addressing how directors work with actors doing Shakespeare. A practical tool for actors and directors wishing to learn Bard-based performance.
