Lee Strasberg was one of the major figures in 20th century theatre - Artistic Director of the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and the Actors Studio, teacher of some of the world's finest actors and an actor in his own right (he appeared in "Godfather II"). His greatest work was his contribution to the theory and practice of acting. Now, in this posthumously published legacy to the theatre, Strasberg, for the first time in print, explains the art of acting as he came to understand it. Beginning with his own early experiences and his discovery of the actor's central problem - achieving consistency of inspiration - Strasberg analyzes the work of the great Russian director and actor Constantin Stanislavsky and shows how he, Strasberg, and others added to that work to develop the system known as the Method. This is a book which should be of interest to both actors and anyone interested in art and creativity.

Legendary acting teacher, director, and actor Lee Strasberg co-founded the Group Theatre and was artistic director of the Actors Studio, working with James Dean, Julie Harris, Jane Fonda, and Joanne Woodward, where he was known for teaching method acting, or The Method. In 1969, he established the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. He died in 1982.From Publishers Weekly:
Noted director Strasberg (1901-1982) explores the nature of creativity in the acting process and provides the first authentic description of "The Method" as developed by Constantin Stanislavsky and continued by Strasberg himself in the Group Theatre and Actor's Studio. In this short work, he shows how Stanislavsky's teachings changed his life; describes his own discoveries and procedures; provides specific examples of the uses of imagination, tension, relaxation, emotional memory, anticipation and control; proposes various methods of training; comments on the acting styles of his contemporaries as well as on the nonrealistic styles of Antonin Artaud, Bertolt Brecht and Jerzy Grotowski. Essential reading for actors, directors and students of theater. Photos not seen by PW.
