About the Book:

Sources: A memoir is an exceptional book. Uta Hagen, one of the world's most renowned stage actresses, has written a deeply personal memoir of her life, from her childhood in Germany to success in America.

Uta Hagen's life literally was acting. Born June 12, 1919, in Germany, her own journey to the extraordinary began at age 18 when she made her professional stage debut in a Massachusetts production of Hamlet. The Broadway debut came a year later, in 1938. In all, Hagen would go onto appear in more than 20 Broadway productions, including the original staging of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?.

The veteran Broadway star taught acting for more than forty years, alongside her husband Herbert Berghof, at HB Studio, their acting school in New York. HB's long list of famous students includes Matthew Broderick, Sigourney Weaver, Liza Minnelli, Whoopi Goldberg, Jack Lemmon, Judd Hirsch, Jason Robards, Mercedes Ruehl, Ron Silver, Al Pacino, and Maureen Stapleton. She was a voice coach to Judy Garland.

Sources: A memoir is Uta Hagen's lyrical account of the special ways love of nature is intertwined with love of art in her life, providing a rare glimpse of the off-stage life of an actress. Originally published in 1983, this book is republished in 2019 with a foreword by her daughter, Leticia Ferrer, and her grand-daughter Teresa Teuscher to whom Uta Hagen dedicated the book.
