Stanislavski was the first person to develop a
cogent and practical system of acting. He remains
the most important influence on actor training
today. And yet many of his ideas are little known
and even misunderstood.
Stanislavski For Beginners is both an invaluable
guide to the Stanislavski system and a fascinating
chronicle of his life. It shatters some common
myths and misconceptions, and blows away the
cobwebs, bringing his ideas vividly to life.
