What people say:

"This book is a delightful, detailed approach to comedic performance that every actor can learn from." — Backstage Magazine

"Gold’s book is a basic how-to manual for performers, directors and teachers that touches on mime, movement, acting, clowning, improvisation, writing and even juggling. Physical theatre training is difficult to capture within the pages of a book, but Gold does a good job — helped by lively text, photos and illustrations. Her approach is refreshing, too — urging readers to experiment with all the techniques she describes, then discard what doesn’t work for them.." — Stage Directions Magazine
