Description - How to Stage a Play by Charles Marowitz

Based on his own personal experiences, this concise handbook follows a director's journey from the casting process to opening night, revealing the hidden or unspoken aspects of play and stage production that are rarely, if ever, described. Marowitz discusses topics such as: rehearsals; characterization; blocking; tempo-rhythm; dramaturgy; and actor/audience psychology. Demystifying an art form that is often dealt with only in terms of concepts and ideology rather than the mundane, here are nitty-gritty nuts-and-bolts requirements of just "getting the show on the road."
