To Act Is to Do: Six Classes for Teachers and Actors Based on the Uta Hagen Technique
To Act Is to Do by RICHARD ALAN NICHOLS, who studied as a scholarship student for five years with Uta Hagen at the HB Studio in New York, is the ultimate guide for both actors and teachers.
In six informative and interactive class sessions, Nichols details twenty exercises designed to solve most acting problems that arise while working on plays. Also included are eighteen evaluations of work (scenes, monologues, and Hagen exercises) presented by Nichols' students, with each evaluation serving as a model for teachers to follow in order to assist actors in learning how to assess their own work in an honest way.
This unique exploration--the personal journey of one actor's lifelong quest to perfect his craft while in pursuit of becoming a player--will help all actors develop the discipline necessary to fine-tune their acting instruments and discover new behaviors in themselves.
