About the Book:

Margie Haber spent more than 35 years teaching celebrities and top actors from around the world. Based on her experience as an actress, audition coach, and teacher, How To Get The Part Without Falling Apart promises to take away the "three p's" – pain, panic, and performance anxiety. It takes away from anxiety from the cold-reading process. While giving back the "big P," POWER, to the actor. Covering both acting for the camera and auditioning for the camera, this book is filled with real-life (and often hilarious) audition stories from her clients. And some of the nation's leading actors, with comments and anecdotes from over fifty top industry professionals.

In the 1980's, Margie Haber was working with two unknown actors on their audition technique, Michael Easton and Brad Pitt. Coincidentally, both of them ended up screen testing for the same role in a film called, Thelma & Louise. Little did anyone know that his supporting part in the movie would turn out to be a breakthrough role for Brad Pitt, flinging open the door to his future success. It was the opportunity of a lifetime, and he was prepared for it.

How To Get The Part Without Falling Apart is divided into four sections, each dealing with a different aspect of auditioning: Getting Out of Your Own Way, Breaking Down the Scene, The Haber Phrase Technique (a system that teaches the actor how to use the page, trust the words and explore the life, instead of focusing on the trap of memorization), and Words From the Pros. It also includes a major bonus: sample TV and film audition scenes. A must-have book for the film actor.
