My son loves this book Perfect for his college course Very good book I bought this book as it was recommended by The Stage, so wanted to have a flick through as I m a Musical Theatre student I have quite bad dyslexia with reading but found this book so great and learnt a lot from it I ve referenced it in essays and would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is into performing Great book, really enjoying it. About half of the book is about acting before it gets into musicals Outlines and contrasts several acting approaches and theories, together with some intriguing exercises An easy book to read I read it from cover to cover Excellent. Good book for study Musical theatre has the potential to be extraordinary As a genre, it brims with possibility Often dismissed as a frivolous style of entertainment, the musical can actually be the most powerful and affecting of theatrical forms So begins Paul Harvard s impassioned and invaluable guide for actors and students of musical theatre But he quickly diagnoses a problem with much of the acting he sees in drama schools, where he teaches, and on the professional stage, where he has worked Self consciousness creeps in, singing and dancing take precedence, so that when performers open their mouths to sing, the acting stopsActing Through Song directly addresses this challenge Harvard takes the techniques of modern actor training including the theories of Stanislavsky, Brecht, Meisner and Laban, amongst others and applies them to the fundamental component of musical theatre singingWith dozens of exercises to put these theories into practice, and numerous examples from a broad range of musicals, the result is a comprehensive and rigorous acting course for those training in musical theatre or already performing, whether amateur or professional, to realise their potential and act better This was a gift for my granddaughter and she said it was absolutely great for preparation for her drama exam etc. No podr a estar m s contento con este libro Soy actor y profesor de teatro y os puedo asegurar que es una maravilla Todo perfectamente explicado,con ejercicios para hacer en clase, detalles de diferentes t cnicas actorales y lleno de recursos Obviamente est enfocado para teatro musical, la segunda parte del libro, as que adem s es SUPER completo No os lo perd is This is another book you will need if you want to study musical theatre It just teaches you have to act through your song and think about what your doing What movements should you use It s a must and should be in ever school.
