Description: In this follow-up to his tremendously successful first volume that has become an essential classroom tool, Brestoff examines all new teachers including Andre Antoine, Jacques Copeau and Michel Saint-Denis who represent a virtually unacknowledged yet powerful French influence on acting and actor training in the United States and abroad. American Realist teachers such as Elia Kazan, Uta Hagen and David Mamet, and two influential "outside-the-box" teachers, Anne Bogart with her Viewpoints work and Keith Johnstone, creator of Theatre Sports, are also featured. While differences among the various acting theories and practices are noted and analyzed, so too are exciting and unexpected connections among them revealed. Associate Professor of Drama and Associate Head of Acting University of California, Irvine, Richard is the author of four best-selling books for Smith and Kraus including The Great Acting Teachers and Their Methods, The Camera Smart Actor, The Actor's Wheel of Connection and Acting Under the Circumstances. He has acted on Broadway and Off, in Regional Theater and on camera, appearing on the 1991 Emmy Ballot for his Guest-Star performance on the CBS television series, thirtysomething. Richard holds an MFA in Acting form NYU where his teachers included Olympia Dukakis, Peter Kass, Joe Chaikin and Kristin Linklater.
