Through a series of inspiring, easy-to-follow exercises, an acclaimed director and drama coach shows both novice and experienced actors how to conquer the challenges of acting Shakespeare. Lessons cover all the skills needed for effective voice delivery: correct breathing, scansion, phrasing, and rhythm. For text analysis and character interpretation, both classical British training and American methods are explored. In addition to ongoing, long-term practice exercises, the book offers a one-day brush-up section to address immediate concerns of working actors cast to play Shakespearean roles.
