A Meisner Legacy by Martha Jacobs presents the two-year preparation for actors designed by Sanford Meisner and refined by Robert Patterson. The book details every exercise in the two-year course, with explanations and examples. Each exercise introduces elements of the craft of acting, and each exercise builds on lessons learned in previous exercises. Throughout, there are notes for both students and teachers detailing Jacobs personal experience and understanding using this material.
The comprehensive discipline offers a clear and concise way in which to work with Meisner s material. Through the broad and in depth practice, skills are cultivated that are necessary not only to acting, but also to playwriting, directing and theatre criticism.
A plan is offered for teaching in a university environment or a professional studio setting, and the book contains more than 70 suggested scenes for class work, to sharpen an actors skills. Where permission has been granted, full scenes are included.
