1 videocassette (30 min.) : sd., col. with b&w sequences ; 1/2 in. Summary: This program considers the unique synergy between method acting and poetic realism, marking the changes in American theater from pre- to post-World War II society. America's newfound place on the world stage is spotlighted, along with the careers of Paul Robeson, Canada Lee, and Marlon Brando. Milestone plays such as A Streetcar named desire, Cat on a hot tin roof, Bus stop and The crucible, and the iconic stature of Times Square, the heart of New York's mainstream theater, reflected the nation's cultural history.

Theatrgroup "Method" Acting Procedures

TheatrGROUP is a theatre company with "method" acting training on-site. It is open 24-hours, seven days a week for members. This page will lead interested individuals to descriptions of various techniques and procedures of so-called "method" acting. What you will find here is not copied from books. It's in my own words, and composed for you with definitions, analogies, descriptions and examples of this work which I am able to relate to you after studying, teaching and using it as an actor for the past 28 years.
