The Essential Harold Clurman
Author: Glenn Young
Publisher: Applause Theatre & Cinema Book Publishers
This power-packed paperback abridged edition of the acclaimed Collected Works of Harold Clurman, originally published by Applause in a 1200-page hardcover edition, fully covers all the major landmarks and issues of 20th Century theatre. It includes Clurman on theatre's major players: O'Neill, Ibsen, Williams, Odets, Mamet, et al. He was also a master critic of and voice on the world's major theatre companies: the Moscow Art Theatre, Comedie Francaise, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and, of course, on his own Group Theatre, legendary breeding ground of method acting. The volume also offers readers Clurman's landmark discussions on acting, directing, and the art of performance. Unlike most of the great figures of 20th Century theatre, Clurman, luckily for us, regularly put his thoughts down in writing.
(Applause Books). Stella Adler was one of the 20th Century's greatest figures. She is arguably the most important teacher of acting in American history. Over her long career, both in New York and Hollywood, she offered her vast acting knowledge to generations of actors, including Marlon Brando, Warren Beatty, and Robert De Niro. The great voice finally ended in the early Nineties, but her decades of experience and teaching have been brilliantly caught and encapsulated by Howard Kissel in the twenty-two lessons in this book.
The New York Musicals of Comden and Green brings together three of their greatest Broadway triumphs: On the Town (1944) and Wonderful Town (1953), with music by Leonard Bernstein, and Bells are Ringing (1956), with a score by Jule Styne.
