In the time I studied in his classes I had the opportunity to see a great many actors and directors overcome obstacles that stood in the way of their talent. And after a while I was surprised to find that there were often similarities to the challenges they faced. This book could be called a compilation of the remedies that Milton discovered.
The core of Milton's technique is The Checklist. Tried and tested techniques for breaking down a scene and unlocking its secrets. He shares this along with many other common pitfalls to watch out for.
Much of Acting Class is written in the form of transcribed critiques from actual classes and because of this, the message may not be immediately clear to those who haven't sat in his class themselves. I studied at the Beverly Hills Playhouse for three years and I can tell you that over time I saw a great many students learn these exact lessons. For this reason I can assure you that, however oblique it may seem on first read, the lessons are in this text.
This is not a dry, dense, academic book. Milton gets right to it. Acting is not some vague, formless art in his view. It's a skill that can be learned, exercised and perfected.
