Revolutionary! Inspiring! Masterful! Essential! From around the world, the critics have raved about Larry Silverberg's series on the Meisner Approach. In Workbook Four: Playing The Part, Larry takes you on a most intimate and personal journey as he teaches you how to take on the life of the character in a deeply authentic, organic, and specific way. As you work through the lessons in Playing the Part, your creativity and imagination will be unleashed and you will learn what it really means to be an actor who is passionate, relentless, and true! Join the students who have studied with Larry and who have used his books to master the craft of acting.
I deeply appreciate Silverberg's series because it lays out the Meisner excercises in a fun way without dumbing them down (there's not a lot TO dumb down, the technique, though it requires practice, really is simple). My copies are dog-eared and marked with notes. They're acting bibles. You DO need to find a Meisner class, and don't think you can do a 4-week workshop or some other gimmick and think you're trained. But until you can get to or while you're in class, these books are ideal for reference, clarification, and reinforcement.
If you're still on the fence, please know that Meisner students get work. For working actors, there is no better technique for cold-readings and monologues. The technique also makes actors easy to direct, as it allows them to quickly translate cold instructions into fresh emotional circumstances without having to get all heady about it, and without a lot of rehearsal. There isn't enough being written about the technique, in my opinion. Silverberg's contribution is seminal. Please purchase the entire series of 4 workbooks. You will not regret it.
