"This book is a necessity of every actor's of the most remarkable books about the theatre that I have ever read" (Observer) No one has had a greater influence on acting as we know it than Stanislavski. His "method" - or interpretations of it - has become the central force determining almost every performance we see on stage or screen. In My Life in Art Stanislavski recalls his theatrical career, from his early experiences in Rubinstein's Russian Musical Society to his final triumphs with Chekhov at the Moscow Art Theatre. His vivid account of his own most famous productions is interspersed with his anecdotes of the famous - of Kommisarjevksy, Tolstoy, Gorky, and of the Moscow visit of Isadora Duncan and Gordon Craig."The whole book is packed with entertainment, alternating with shrewd observation and a wealth of worldly wisdom...the most interesting and original work on the theatre that has been published for years" - Daily Telegraph"A wise and delightful is packed with sage practical counsel to actors and actresses" - Times Literary Supplement
