Editorial Reviews

Review

Dear Larry, I find your books to be fascinating, compelling, and so accessible to anyone unfamiliar with the Meisner Approach to acting. What strikes me the most about it though, is the love which is woven into your attitude toward the acting student and his work. I will definitely be using your texts as my primary source for my acting classes here at Texas Tech. ----Louise T Mallory, Texas Tech University

Of other Silverberg volumes within The Sanford Meisner Approach series,

"...recommended for large theater collections in public and academic libraries" and "Silverberg's writing is concise and insightful throughout and makes the technique accessible to any committed student." ----Library Journal

"...fascinating..." ----Booklist

"Meisner for Teens: A Life of True Acting" is a text guidebook for young actors. Ideal for high school drama teaching, "Meisner for Teens" contains clear, easy to understand instruction and worksheets to direct budding actors towards authentic, passionate, alive techniques of true acting.

Working with increased sensitivity develops true acting abilities and skills. Inspirational quotes and exercises to refine skills and awareness are all part of this sophisticated but practical approach. "Meisner for Teens" is a boon to teachers and budding actors everywhere.
