Since founding the Actors Studio with Elia Kazan and Cheryl Crawford in 1947, Robert Lewis has earned a reputation as one of the country's leading teachers of acting. In Advice to the Players, Lewis presents a clear program of study for the actor, with detailed exercises to strengthen technique. He calls on his vast range of experience to illuminate common problems and suggest means to solve them. The areas covered include: relaxation, body work, concentration, imagination, sensory perception, improvisation and emotion. Lewis's practicality and wisdom, and his genius for delineating-simply and straightforwardly-the vital elements of the actor's craft, make this book an invaluable tool for the actor and also for the theatre enthusiast.
