あらすじ・解説

Sanford Meisner was one of the best known and beloved teachers of acting in the country. This audiobook follows one of his acting classes for 15 months, beginning with the most rudimentary exercises and ending with affecting and polished scenes from contemporary American plays. Written in collaboration with Dennis Longwell, it is essential listening for beginning and professional actors alike. Throughout this audiobooks, Meisner is a delight - always empathizing with his students and urging them onward, provoking emotion, laughter, and growing technical mastery from his charges. 

With an introduction by Sydney Pollack, director of Out of Africa and Tootsie, who worked with Meisner for five years.

"This book should be read by anyone who wants to act or even appreciate what acting involves. Like Meisner's way of teaching, it is the straight goods." (Arthur Miller)

"If there is a key to good acting, this one is it, above all others. Actors, young and not so young, will find inspiration and excitement in this book." (Gregory Peck)

Read by Jason Culp, Arthur Morey, and Mark Bramhall

Surprisingly outstanding as an audiobook

I didn't realize that the book is largely the story of one of Meisner's classes told as dialogue with specific examples. The effect was stunning. One suggestion, however: don't listen to it all at once, otherwise you're essentially digesting a year-long course for professional actors in a matter of weeks/days. I would say take a chapter a week. I definitely spaced out and didn't get the full benefit in that sense. But seriously. Give it a listen.

Bio, not training

Thought this would be a book about being or becoming an actor. It's more a Biography of Meisner and his life as an instructor. Not for the average person wishing to learn about a different field.

Multiple reads a must

This material is challenging at best and requires a great deal of steeping to make headway. Useful if you can work in person with someone familiar with meisner techniques. But 10/10 recommend.

Just like Sandy teaching you himself!!

This was a great book, mainly due to the fact that it was the first I’ve ever read of its kind! I love the way in which it reads out the dialogues of the actual classes themselves and in this format, you end up learning a lot easier in my opinion. GREAT BOOK 10/10 DEFINITELY GIVE IT A READ!

interesting how to book

Instead of tell how to act it was as if you were in his class listening in.

Sheer genius! You're tansported to Meisner's class

The dialog between Meisner and his students makes you feel like you are auditing the class, like you're right there listening and learning, participating, taking notes, applying knowledge, trying, failing, succeeding, and becoming engrossed in the art of acting. This allows you to not only read the text but to see yourself in some of the studentsand it helps reinforce the teachings and foundational structure that are applicable to oither areas of your life so that you can be your true authentic self, which is the essence of acting, living out loud to the fullest . Going beyond the act of acting to discover the truest revelation of who you are, the emotive unadulterated you - raw, uncensored, unapologetic, fearless, vulnerable, confident, unrelenting, no holds bar. This is just what I needed to change the trajectory of my creative being and transform my life. Thank you Mr. Meisner! Longwell's contribution to bringing your classroom back to life earns him a jewel in his crown. Kim Chayil
