What Readers Say
Actors Talk About Shakespeare
"Your book arrived and I devoured it quickly because it is an excellent
resource for actors and scholars."
--Keith Garebian, Canadian writer, theater books
“What a terrific book! It will be so valuable to future generations
of theatre scholars and artists. It is a real gift to each of the actors
represented in the book, a detailed record of their process and interpretive
choices. Actors rarely have scholars recording their work in this systematic
--Jerry Dickey, Professor of Theatre, University of Arizona
“A delightful book with real insights into the power of theatrical
imagery from Shakespeare’s day to the present: insightful, enjoyable,
and particularly enlightening for theater lovers. This lets me share
a wider acting world I usually view only through the eyes of the few
professional actors I know. I highly recommend it for all committed
audience members like me.”
--Jean Rush, Professor of Art, Illinois State University
"The reader is invited to share from each of these actors their personal
approach to performing Shakespeare--their insights and experiences.
The book also includes the professional background and performance
history of each actor. I loved it!"
--Margaret Ramsay, Professor of Dance, University of California, Santa Barbara
