Summary "This third edition of Clues to Acting Shakespeare retains previous editions' unique solutions to challenges that face directors and actors at advanced levels and is expanded to include an entirely new section for amateur and community theatre groups. Text analysis, character studies, and both classical British training and American methods are explored. The exercises and recorded workshops provide inspiring advice to all actors and demonstrate concepts discussed throughout the book. The critical skills required for acting Shakespeare, including scansion, phrasing, caesura, breathing, speech structure, antithesis, and more are covered in detail. The comprehensive exercises using the Bard's plays and sonnets teach actors to break down the verse, support the words, understand the imagery, and use the text to create vibrant performances"-- Provided by publisher.
