THE NEWEST BOOK BY LARRY SILVERBERG
True Acting Tips leads stage and screen actors on a journey of passion, intimacy, and personal investment. This isn't to say that there will not be heavy demands and a high cost, but ultimately, this book is designed to offer the clarity and encouragement to become an actor who makes a difference in the lives of the audience members.
"True Acting" is not a reproduction of anything that has come before and True Acting Tips is not a book concerned primarily with the technical demands of acting. Instead, it is an in-depth examination and invitation to see and experience acting as a momentous burst of creation new, surprising, and deeply human.
The book includes inspirational quotes, more than 200 acting tips, and images that reveal a powerful philosophy to assist in the most difficult moments. Reading this book, actors will find the joy of true communion with their acting partners and, through this encounter, give the audience an uplifting experience by reminding them that we are all, in fact, human beings.
THE LATEST REVIEWS!
"I have been a fan of Larry Silverberg and his books for a while now, and his latest book is another winner. TRUE ACTING TIPS has a uniquely different format and was inspired from his regular column "True Acting Tips" on his fabulous True Acting Website. When I received my book in the mail I opened it up immediately, planning on taking a quick glance through the book. I couldn't put it down. These tips are full of passion, intriguing thoughts and challenges, and are surprisingly emotionally intimate. Every actor should read this as a reminder that we must be connected to one another, we must look out for one another, and we must strive for being fully committed to what we are doing on stage and off. I am an actress and a high school theatre teacher and will use this all the time! Each of the tips will make for a great start to discussions and lessons, and on a personal level I will turn to it often as a source of hope and joy. This is a great resource of inspiration for actors, directors, teachers, and theatre students, and can be applied not just to the world of theatre, but also to life in general. This book is going to be on my desk at school and will be dog-eared and ragged in a very short time!"
"As an acting professor for the past 30 years for 3 different universities and as a private coach, all of Larry Silverberg's book are incredibly important to my teaching. I have been fortunate enough to have been certified as an instructor of the Sanford Meiser Acting Technique as taught by Larry Silverberg with the True Acting Institute, so needless to say I have all of his books, use them in all of my Theatre/TV/Film acting classes and my Audition Technique class. TRUE ACTING TIPS has now become a text that not only gives me Larry's and Sandy's pearls of wisdom to share with my students, but it also serves as an inspiration everyday. I start my day, with my hot cup of tea and reread the pages I have read previously and add one more everyday. This helps to solidify them in my mind and keeps me passionate about the core of truthfulness necessary for this technique to help young artist's soar. I have added it to my long list of Larry Silverberg books that I recommend to my seniors and to my fellow actor's and professors."
