American actors, fear Shakespeare no more! Through a series of easy-to-follow exercises, an acclaimed director and drama coach shows both students and experienced actors how to break down the verse, support the words, understand the images, and use the text to create vibrant, living performances. Revised and expanded to include the unique challenges facing teachers and their students in performing Shakespeare's works, as well as time-tested tools for overcoming these obstacles. Effective delivery, correct breathing, scansion, phrasing, structure and rhythm, caesura, and more are covered. For text analysis and character interpretation, both classical British training and American methods are explored. In addition to ongoing, long-term practice exercises, it offers a one-day brush-up section to prep actors cast to play Shakespearean roles immediately.--From publisher description.
