Reviews of : Sanford Meisner on Acting by Sanford Meisner PDF Book
Inside this Book – This book, written in collaboration with Dennis Longwell, follows an acting class of eight men and eight women for fifteen months, beginning with the most rudimentary exercises and ending with affecting and polished scenes from contemporary American plays. Throughout these pages Meisner is delight–always empathizing with his students and urging them onward, provoking emotion, laughter, and growing technical mastery from his charges. With an introduction by Sydney Pollack, director of “Out of Africa” and “Tootsie,” who worked with Meisner for five years.
Inside this book –Sanford Meisner on Acting PDF Book by Sanford Meisner – If I were to take Meisner’s class, I’m fairly certain I would be kicked out and never want to act again. He has an issue with introversion in actors. He’s all about getting the actor out of their head and relying on their instincts and gut responses. This certainly has its place, but I think that an actor’s brain is important. I want to be an intelligent actor. I think it is important for there to be intelligent actors. I don’t want to go to a play and see a bunch of brainless acting. There are times when you need to be able to think on stage and not react with your gut or your instinct. For instance, a cell phone goes off or an audience member falls asleep or walks out. You can’t stop the show and yell at them (though I have heard stories of some actors doing this). Or a prop is not where it’s supposed to be or your scene partner skips a chunk of dialogue. Your instinct would be to react to that, but instead you have to figure out an alternative, how to do the scene without the prop, how to get the dialogue back on track to keep the story cohesive.
