About the Book:

Stella Adler was one of the 20th Century's greatest figures. She is arguably the most important teacher of acting in American history, and one of few Americans to have studied the "Method" with its originator, Constantin Stanislavsky.

Stella Adler developed her own "method" built on the work of Stanislavski and Lee Strasberg to create an approach to acting that is all-encompassing, rich, and multilayered. Though Marlon Brando's lifelike acting style is often attributed to Strasberg's Method, he was actually trained by Stella Adler; his devotion to Adler and her work was so strong that he wrote the preface to her manual The Art of Acting. Over her long career, both in New York and Hollywood, she offered her vast acting knowledge to generations of actors, including Warren Beatty, Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, Benicio Del Toro, Mark Ruffalo, and Melanie Griffith. The great voice finally ended in the early Nineties, but her decades of experience and teaching have been brilliantly caught and encapsulated by Howard Kissel in the twenty-two lessons in this book The Art of Acting. Perfect for the professional and novice alike.

About the Author:

Stella Adler (1901-1992) was an American actress and an acclaimed acting teacher. She began her life on the stage at the age of five in a production that starred her father, the legendary actor of the Yiddish Theatre, Jacob Adler. Stella Adler was one of the co-founders of the revolutionary Group Theatre. In 1934, she met and studied with Konstantin Stanislavski and began to give acting classes for other members of the Group, including Sanford Meisner and Elia Kazan. Adler established the Stella Adler Conservatory of Acting in 1949 and taught at Yale University.
