“Thinking in Character, or Knocking on Hamlet’s Door” is a fine-tuned, detailed approach to character building. Using “thought,” or subtext, to shepherd the actor towards depth and nuance, Richard Brestoff brings a wealth of teaching experience and keen insights to bear on characters ranging from Ibsen’s Doll’s House to Shakespeare’s most challenging protagonists. With lucid descriptions and absorbing ideas, Brestoff’s skills in acting and dramaturgy combine to make this book an essential and thought-provoking text. It is a work I will re-read and reference often – David Krasner, Chair of Theatre, Five Towns College, Editor of Method Acting Reconsidered
