Description:

At last in paperback, the brilliant primer on directing for film and theater that Dame Judi Dench calls "a gemwitty and full of insight." Five years ago, Frank Hauser, a retired director, and Russell Reich, his former student, co-wroteNotes on Directing, which Reich self-published. It was immediately acclaimed as a timeless classicand is now finally available in a paperback edition. There is true genius on these pages. Just as Strunk and White have done for composition and grammar, Hauser and Reich offer unparalleled insights into the crafts of directing and acting. They include, as well, life lessonsabout how to deal with people, anticipate problems, and handle challenging situationsthat makeNotes on Directingas valuable offstage as on. The 130 "notes" address a wide range of topics, from understanding the script to casting, rules for rehearsal, how to talk to actors, how to get a laugh, and the key elements of staging. They reveal what got the young Ian McKellen, Judi Dench, and Richard Burton started on their careers, and offer rare quotes from artists as diverse as Anton Chekhov, Elia Kazan, and George Bernard Shaw. Plainly expressed, with explanatory commentary and five valuable appendices, this deceptively slim book has the impact of a privileged apprenticeship with a master director. For the student aspiring to a directing or acting career, the professional looking for new ideas, or the theater lover wanting insight into the creative process, readingNotes on Directingwill be an invaluable experience.
