Acting 2.0 by Anthony Abeson
Published by Smith & Kraus
www.smithandkraus.com
Anthony Abeson's actor-training is an amalgam of his work with Peter Brook, Jerzy Grotowski, Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler and Harold Clurman. Many of his students have gone on to successful careers in theatre, film and television. In "Acting 2.0: Doing Work that Gets Work in a High-Tech World" Abeson draws upon his many years of experience and expertise to discuss the consequences of the American acting culture's emphasis on using rather than developing talent. In the opening of "Acting 2.0), he says "I want to empower you with practical tools with which to do good work that gets work in the room work on the stage and screen that inspires all of us, that arouses not prurience or violence but that precious something, intangible but of inestimable value, that is being destroyed from our lives : our humanity. Enhanced with the inclusion of a four page Bibliography and a two page Author Biography, "Acting 2.0" will prove an informative and instructive read for anyone aspiring to an acting career. While very highly recommended for personal, professional, community theatre, community library, and academic library Theatrical Studies reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists, it should also be noted that "Acting 2.0" is also available in a Kindle edition ($9.99),Smith and Kraus, inc., ISBN 9781575259024, $16.95, PB, 165pp,
