Publisher's Summary

Stella Adler was one of the 20th Century's greatest figures. She is arguably the most important teacher of acting in American history. Over her long career, both in New York and Hollywood, she offered her vast acting knowledge to generations of actors, including Marlon Brando, Warren Beatty, and Robert De Niro. The great voice finally ended in the early 1990s. But, her decades of experience and teaching have been brilliantly captured and encapsulated by Howard Kissel, in the 22 lessons you'll hear in this audiobook.

This brand-new audio edition of The Art of Acting is vibrantly narrated by Bonnie Agan.

A non actor reads an acting Bible??

Buy the hard copy skip this audiobook.
As a professional actor, I consider Stella Adler’s book an essential, multiple-read necessity. I enjoyed Isaac Butler’s THE METHOD: so much, I thought I’d listen tHis, my old favorite.
Within the first 5 minutes, this richly toned voice mispronounced the FOUNDER of 20th century acting CONSTANTIN Stanislavsky, and the classic lead in Three Musketeers, DARTAGNAN.
How on earth can a producer allow this narrator to read this enormously important book???

Life changing.

This book is a the best possible tool an inspiring actor can have. It will make you perceive things differently and allow you to be in tune with the world of Theater. This book has so much information in it I'm going to have to listen to it multiple times. Stella Addler greatly influenced the stage and her presence was staggering. This is a MUST. The amount of detail on what to do and how to do it will most definitely improve your abilities. If I ever become a well known actor I will have this book to thank for it.
