Friends of Stanislavsky have long known that he wished to leave a record of the methods by which the Moscow Art Company was built up, in such a form that it could be of use to actors and producers after his death. The first time he mentioned this wish to me he spoke of the projected work as a grammar of acting. In his own My Life in Art, and in similar expressions by persons who studied under him, a wholly different contribution has been made, one much easier, and in his opinion of lesser importance. A manual, a handbook, a working textbook has been his dream, and a most difficult one to realize. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

(Limelight). A guide for actors, and everyone else, to getting the best for less and surviving, thriving and living the good life in the Big Apple. Here is the ultimate guidebook for the hordes of aspiring young performers who arrive in the Big City determined to climb the ladder to stardom. But the purpose of Craig Wroe, an actor himself, is not to provide instruction on how to refine acting, singing or dancing talents or how to land a job in the chorus of The Producers . Plenty of other books do that. His aim is far broader to help you survive in the crowded, frantic, expensive maelstrom that is New York. From finding a decent, reasonably inexpensive place to live to finding competent, reasonably inexpensive dental care, from getting computer training to organize your day-to-day existence to joining a gym to harden your body, from eating well to dressing better all on a tight budget there is virtually no aspect of life in New York that is not covered in this book. And it not only names names; it gives addresses and phone numbers as well. And keep in mind that newly-arrived lawyers, accountants, models, writers you name them need these things too.

Donald Antrim ist der große Unbekannte der zeitgenössischen US-Literatur: Autoren wie Jonathan Franzen, Thomas Pynchon, Richard Ford und Jeffrey Eugenides verehren sein schmales, geheimnisvoll funkelndes Werk – allem voran seine jüngsten, sämtlich im renommierten «New Yorker» vorab publizierten Storys. Da kauft ein untreuer Mann seiner Frau einen Blumenstrauß für 350 Dollar, während sie mit seinem besten Freund, der ihr Geliebter ist, und dessen Frau, die seine Exgeliebte ist, in einem Lokal auf ihn wartet («Noch ein Manhattan»). Eine Schulinszenierung von Shakespeares «Mittsommernachtstraum», getragen vom anarchischen Furor der Texte, von zu viel Dope und pubertärer Lust, endet in einer Orgie («Ein Schauspieler bereitet sich vor»). Und in der Titelstory fährt ein trauriger Kunstlehrer in die Berge, um dort die Gemälde seiner Exfreundin zu entsorgen. Die Menschen in Antrims Erzählungen sind ständig mit ihrem unkooperativen Ich konfrontiert, größenwahnsinnig, verzweifelt. Aber sie sind lebenshungrig. Sie lieben und wollen geliebt werden. Antrim ist ein Erforscher psychologischer Grenzbereiche, der stets das Komische, Groteske im hartnäckig tragischen Alltag findet. Seine Storys sind kunstvoll komponierte, atemberaubend elegante Meisterwerke voller Mitgefühl und Zartheit.

Stanislavski’s ‘system’ has dominated actor-training in the West since his writings were first translated into English in the 1920s and 30s. His systematic attempt to outline a psycho-physical technique for acting single-handedly revolutionized standards of acting in the theatre. Until now, readers and students have had to contend with inaccurate, misleading and difficult-to-read English-language versions. Some of the mistranslations have resulted in profound distortions in the way his system has been interpreted and taught. At last, Jean Benedetti has succeeded in translating Stanislavski’s huge manual into a lively, fascinating and accurate text in English. He has remained faithful to the author's original intentions, putting the two books previously known as An Actor Prepares and Building A Character back together into one volume, and in a colloquial and readable style for today's actors. The result is a major contribution to the theatre, and a service to one of the great innovators of the twentieth century. This Routledge Classics edition includes a new Foreword by the director Richard Eyre.

Stanislavsky in Focus brilliantly examines the history and actual premises of Stanislavsky's 'System', separating myth from fact with forensic skill. The first edition of this now classic study showed conclusively how the 'System' was gradually transformed into the Method, popularised in the 1950s by Lee Strasberg and the Actor's Studio. It looked at the gap between the original Russian texts and what most English-speaking practitioners still imagine to be Stanislavsky's ideas. This thoroughly revised new edition also delves even deeper into: the mythical depiction of Stanislavsky as a tyrannical director and teacher yoga, the mind-body-spirit continuum and its role in the 'System' how Stanislavsky used subtexts to hide many of his ideas from Soviet censors. The text has been updated to address all of the relevant scholarship, particularly in Russia, since the first edition was published. It also features an expanded glossary on the System's terminology and its historical exercises, as well as more on the political context of Stanislavsky's work, its links with cognitive science, and the System's relation to contemporary developments in actor-training. It will be a vital part of every practitioner's and historian's library.
