Method acting is one of the most popular and controversial approaches to acting. It has not only shaped important schools of acting, but has been a fundamental constant of all American acting. This volume explores method acting from a broad perspective, focusing on a point of equilibrium between the principles of the method and its relationship to other theories of performance. By concentrating on three areas of the method its theory, its practice, and its future application the great tradition of the method will serve to inform and teach us how to approach acting and acting theory in the 21st century.
