Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is a continuation of a master's class on a much higher level. The book has exercises and much, much more. For an actor this book is indispensable. It gives such a great insight into the craft and the business. This book is wonderful and so easy to read! --Linda Weitzler, mentor program coordinator for Women In Film

This is not a book to read like an instruction manual, but it is dense with experience, guidance, philosophy, challenges, practical magic, and support. The authors ask of the actor this: Do you want to accept this as your field, your life s work? Open it anywhere and begin. By the way, once you start this work, this calling, if you are called, you re never finished.
-Joanna Gleason, Tony-winning stage actress


As a director, I have worked with actors for years. Since reading Paul Gleason and Gavin Levy s new book, Acting for Love & Money: Connecting the craft to the industry, I have actually gained real insight into working with actors and getting the most from their skill and artistry. This is a must-read book not only for actors interested in honing their skills, but for any film or theatre professionals who deal with talent.
-Richard Delighter, director of Real Productions, Inc.


This book is a must for every actor s library. There is an answer for every problem ... no matter how difficult it may seem. It is a true reference guide and so easy to understand. You can open it anywhere ... and learn something. God bless you Gavin and Paul for caring so much about the people who love the performing arts, as I do with all my heart.
-Dorothy Barret, director of American National Academy of Performing Arts


Every actor needs to buy this book and not give it away for love or money! It is an essential guide to connecting to the professional world of performance. Acting for Love & Money provides insight, exercises, and inspiration to all of us who are involved, interested, and passionate about what we do. If you want to work and win at auditions and you are serious about this industry, buy, steal, or borrow this book and use it! ---Peter Barlow FRSA (Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts), Chair of Conference of Drama Schools<br /><br />This is the most relevant and practical book on acting for today s actor. It guides the aspiring actor and the working actor to look at acting as a vocation in which to practice the art of acting. It helps them to understand the training they are getting in regards to a career and helps them to recognize the good training they must seek. It is a must for all actors who want to learn and remember their craft.
-Jack Wiant, former CFO Los Angeles Music Center


Plenty of great information to read again and again, helpfully reminding a true actor that you always have more mountains to climb as you grow. It is important to keep your nose up to avoid scraping your chin and this book illustrates the visual in many ways!
-Romie Szal: Owner-Director of the K Hall Agency


This book is a continuation of a master s class on a much higher level. The book has exercises and much, much more. For an actor this book is indispensable. It gives such a great insight into the craft and the business. This book is wonderful and so easy to read!
-Linda Weitzler, mentor program coordinator for Women In Film


It s a very appealing book to actors serious about their craft. The organization in short sections makes it an easy-to-read, honest, no-nonsense approach to the entire acting world from classroom, to rehearsal, to performance, to managing your career. Acting for Love & Money tells it like it is.
-Ginny Kopf: Author of The Dialect Handbook


This refreshing book advances commonsense diagnoses and solutions to the artistic and professional problems of the modern actor. A reader --Dante Basco, Hollywood actor
