About the Book:

A step-by-step guide from a Broadway director and renowned acting teacher.

One of New York City's foremost acting programs is available in book form in Acting: Advanced Techniques for the Actor, Director, and Teacher. It provides a solid foundation in the acting technique taught at The T. Schreiber Studio, which has been a home and training ground for many artists who have gone on to successful careers in theatre, film, and television, including Peter Sarsgaard, Maria Bello, and Edward Norton.

Terry Schreiber founded T. Schreiber Studio in 1969 and has been teaching ever since. Honed by over 40 years as a professional acting teacher in New York, this advanced "class in a book" offers different warm-up exercises concentrating on the actor's sense of smell, sound, sight, and touch; sensory tools for conveying the climate and environment of the text; tips for suggesting a character's physical conditions; and much more. Individual exercises will help you to free the voice and body, create a character, find the action and condition of scenes, and explore the subconscious for effective emotional recall. You will also find meticulous guidelines for best using rehearsal time and preparing for in-class scene-study work.

The foreword is written by two-time Academy Award nominee Edward Norton. Those who act, direct, or teach will not want to miss the acting lessons that have made T. Schreiber Studio a premier actor training program.

What people say:

"Terry Schreiber has not written a do-it-yourself book for actors. Instead, he has studied the techniques of other great teachers – Strasberg, Meisner, Stella Adler, Bobby Lewis – blending their work along with his own to free the actor to follow his or her instincts. A most valuable resource." — Eli Wallach (Emmy winner and Golden Globe nominee) and Anne Jackson (Tony Award nominee)

"Terry Schreiber is an intelligent and intuitive teacher. His passion for the theater is truly inspirational and is surpassed only by his love of the craft of acting. I highly recommend him as a teacher." — Mary-Louise Parker (Emmy and Golden Globe winner)

"This fine book – written by a master teacher who has devoted his life to the study and craft of American acting – will be a resource of wonder and excitement not only for those Terry Schreiber wrote it for, but for everyone interested in the theater in our time and in the future. You will want to keep this book with you and share it with your colleagues and friends." — Marian Seldes (Tony Award winner)

"Terry Schreiber is one of the great master director/teachers in the acting business. His book speaks with the compassion for humanity that has been the hallmark of his work as one of New York City's best acting instructors." — Betty Buckley (Tony Award winner)
