About the Book:

A manual for the working actor in film, stage, and TV, From Auditions to Agents to a Career

Actors can hardly hope for better advocates for their craft than Philip Carlson, the longtime New York City talent manager and agent who was the first agent to sign Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Billy Crudup, Liev Schreiber, Claire Danes, Idris Elba, Kyra Sedgwick, Adrien Grenier and Paul Giamatti. He has represented Viola Davis, Kathy Bates, Brian Dennehy, and W.H. Macy among many gifted others.

For his classes at the Atlantic School of Acting in New York, Philip Carlson has distilled what worked for those actors and what did not and how even they might have been able to shorten the time between training and working consistently in the profession. In his book Breaking and Entering, he shares those practical trade secrets in this extraordinarily comprehensive guide on how to get into show business. Topics include:

• Schools and classes
• The Business
• Showcases
• Casting Directors
• Agents
• Auditions
• Which Coast? East or West?
• Producers
• Staying Real
• Negotiating 101
• Where Do I Fit?
• Movies
• TV: Where the Real Money Is (These Days)
• and much, much more!
