The founder and director of the Yale Repertory Theater, as well as Harvard''s American Repertory Theater, and the drama critic forThe New Republicfor going on thirty years, Robert Brustein is a living legend in theatrical circles. In Letters to a Young Actor, he not only seeks to inspire the multitudes of struggling dramatists out pounding the pavement, but also to reinvigorate the very state of the art of acting itself. Brustein is a man of strong opinions and formidable intellect. Stocked with a wealth of stories about the now rich and famous (he has at various points in his career cultivated such talent as actors Meryl Streep, Marisa Tomei, Cherry Jones, Debra Winger, Sigourney Weaver, Christopher Walken, Tony Shalhoub, Henry Winkler, Christopher Lloyd, Claire Bloom, and many, many more), he brings both passion and a peerless authority to his subject. His telling anecdotes from decades of experience help explain how and why those who made it big are the successes they are today-and what struggles they faced along the way. From why Method acting is not the answer, to the critical importance of paying attention in English Lit. classes, Brustein''s advice is clear, persuasive, and inspiring.
An Ivy League-pedigreed teacher, actor, director, playwright, critic, and lifelong supporter of the theater,Robert Brusteinhas taught countless current stage and screen superstars, supervised well over 200 theatrical productions. His thirteen books used as texts for theater classes the world over.
