Example text

Here’s a substantial difference from almost any other industry. Your son or daughter, when he or she gets that job in Dallas, has gone up against thousands of actors for that one role. There really is no comparison for this kind of competition, except in the sports world. There, when you make it, you get a lot more money and a much longer contract. An actor who does regional theater must be willing to move and travel on short notice. In other professions, this is thought of as a big career adjustment.

This book is not, like so many of the actors’ guides out there, trying to sell the dream. It is not a dissection of the acting business that, when you’ve finished reading, will provide magical answers, a key to stardom or success, or a way to cash in quickly.

Accounts of Strasberg’s misinterpretation of the Stanislavski system vary. Adler herself noted Strasberg’s “excessive use of affective memory exercises”* after she spent time in Paris studying with Stanislavski in his later years.
