9781557833037: The Other Way: An Alternative Approach to Acting and Directing (The Applause Acting Series)

Marowitz examines every aspect of contemporary theatre practice including auditions, first-readings, the rehearsal process, classical techniques and performance art. He delves beyond sub-text, probing the labyrinth that exists beneath conventional psychology. Marowitz comes up with a tantalizing new brew of ideas with which actors and directors can ply their craft into the new millennium.

From Library Journal:

From esteemed actor Frank Langella's simple yet eloquent introductory statement on acting through the concluding regimen of exercises, Marowitz?theater scholar, practitioner, director, and guru?offers contemporary actors the most relevant, no-nonsense acting treatise since Uta Hagen's Respect for Acting (1979). For Marowitz, "the way" is a deeply entrenched approach grounded in Stanislavsky and Strasberg's Method, which has left the modern actor in the intellectual and creative dust of theatrical progress. Conversely, the "other way" asks the actor to check his familiar shtick at the door, disrupting traditional approaches and techniques with more primal undetermined methodologies. Marowitz applies the insights gained through his empirical work to all areas of the rehearsal/performance process. Of both practical and critical importance, The Other Way transcends the ephemeral flavor-of-the-month category into which most acting books fall and should benefit actors and directors for years to come.?Barry X.
