He has remained devoted to the author's unique intentions, placing the 2 books formerly referred to as An Actor Prepares and Building A Character again jointly into one quantity, and in a colloquial and readable variety for cutting-edge actors.
The result's an enormous contribution to the theatre, and a provider to at least one of the nice innovators of the 20 th century.
