    One thought on “Theater for Beginners”

    1. I am not an actor, director or playwright, but after watching one of his performances in a Portland Hilton last weekend, I went to Maxwell s reading of this book and was very moved and excited by his words As I told a friend, this isn t just about theater, it s about life and how to be a better human Such a small, powerful book Brilliant Listening is the most generous act on stage If you are feeling lost or disconnected from the people you re on stage with, just like a musician would, listen you [...]

    2. This is interesting and, I think, useful It s quite short I basically read it in one sitting The book takes the form of advice to actors and it manages to find a balance between practical, straight forward suggestions learn your lines , build a set and an acknowledgement that theater making is not always something that we can understand and control.

    3. Stimulating and very concise A different approach to theatre than I m used to Made me feel inspired to direct.
