In Living on Stage, actors are invited to take a private master class with one of America's most beloved and respected coaches. Through vivid, highly descriptive language, Witcover lets readers watch as he coaches a twentysomething student who is stepping on stage for the first time and learning to focus his attention, accomplish simple stage tasks, and eventually, tackle his first monologue. Next, readers watch as this student attempts increasingly difficult tasks: cultivating imagination, dabbling with improvisation, and working with a partner. Finally, readers witness the student learning to combine the emotional life of his character with his own memories and imagination, and experiment with a variety of character exercises. Whether the student is failing miserably or experiencing moments of glory, aspiring actors are acquiring invaluable tools that they can use to launch, or strengthen, their own acting careers.
