Anyone who wants to be an actor needs to read this book It is, by far, the best book on acting I ve ever read.It is filled with fantastic advice some of it kind of obvious, much of it I ve already been following for years, but still several good reminders of how to audition well Of course, I ve already read this twice since I bought it about a decade ago, so I shouldn t be too surprised that not much seemed new to me.Michael Shurtleff was a major Broadway and Hollywood casting director He often [...]

    6. As an aspiring actor, I loved reading this book Shurtleff takes you into the audition scene and gives you real life examples of what to do and what not to do Some of the advice he gives is pretty self explanatory but still extremely helpful For me, I have referred back to this book to help me get into a good acting mindset It emphasizes being yourself during an audition, while taking advantage of the many parts of the audition so the auditor gets a well rounded view of what you can do.This book [...]

    7. Shurtleff shares many nuggets of wisdom for actors in this book, though those nuggets are sometimes buried due to the book s lack of clear structure.I am an improvisor, and I haven t auditioned for a scripted play since I was a kid Some of the advice in this book is particularly useful for actors auditioning for scripted plays, but I still found a lot of useful advice for acting in improvised scenes as well.The core of the book sets forth the 12 guideposts for reading a script in an audition Tho [...]

    8. Not just for actors While aimed at actors who need knowledge or help with auditions, it is a lifetime s worth of good anecdotes from a big deal insider, told with the force and tenderness of a relative who knows you can make it, but is not sure your passion for the field will survive all the hoops It s about how to present yourself to people who will judge you in moments, how to be pragmatic, authentic to yourself and yet totally surprise them into thinking well and memorably of you even if you [...]

    9. Lots of valuable information Best excerpt for me is to give an ENTIRE range of who you are in an audition An audition is NOT the performance.This rang very true for me An audition is the chance to show the auditor WHO you are Your personality and all facets of it This book is a staple for any serious actor with each new set of sides I receive I touch base with my highlighted parts and get renewed

    10. The absolute must read for actors If you want to have successful auditions you have to get this book for yourself and read it a few times Known by all in the business as the bible on how to audition and very good just to go deeper into characters after you ve been cast in a play.

    11. Excellent, pragmatic advice for scene study monologues auditions Somewhat antiquated A useful resource for students and teachers of Theatre.

    12. As a Theatre major, this book has done than just open my eyes when it came to auditioning This book is very helpful for actors Highly recommend it.

    13. The best book on the topic of acting ever written I have used it countless times, both as a teaching tool and as a reference for myself MUST READ if you want to get better at getting cast.

    15. Excellent book It helps teach much than auditioning, it also teaches exploring and approaching scenes Excellent for anyone who is into acting if even a little, it ll help you out

    16. The economic mountaineers one finds scaling Wall Street skyscrapers love bragging about the quality of the bags under their eyes, and it s true, they do keep late hours under abusive labor hierarchies But in the pissing contest of masochism I wonder if they have anything on aspirant actors, who must, on stage, rend and tear their hearts and souls only to face rejection after rejection for the very qualities that dignify their humanity, all for, at best, a literal fraction of that emerald aquavit [...]

    17. From Screen, Stage, to Life, Michael Shurtleff was an American Actor and a Big Force in the casting world His experiences took him very far in his career in life as a casting director Audition Everything an Actor needs to know to get the part is just that, showing us the step by step process of how to make sure we nail that next actor s audition.

    18. A must read for everyone even remotely involved in acting, writing, or who is in the business of understanding people Shurtleff gives perspective and a suite of tools for bringing characters to life that are invaluable.

    19. Humorless acting is the dreariest kind it s the hallmark of soap opera performing and even there humor is likely to creep in, however half heartedly and apologetically.

    20. Had to read this for my acting elective It did what it set out to accomplish on the cover 4 stars.

    21. Disclaimer this book s primary focus is on how to audition with sides His ideas and techniques will apply to musical theatre auditions as well You ll just have to make some small adjustments to apply them Also, as much as we d like to believe auditioning is timeless, I just don t think it is And this book is a little outdated Actors are no longer required to audition on a stage with just one light The challenge of filling the space and finding your light is of no concern The methods he suggests [...]

    22. I wish I hadn t waited forever to read this book This book is a gold mine of information, tips, and advice for any actor, regardless of the market you work in Though written in 1978, everything still rings true now and what great stories about the greats when they were young Streisand, DeNiro, Gielgud, Vereen They re all in here As an American considering training in the UK at some point, there s also some helpful comparisons between American and British attitudes toward various aspects of the b [...]

    23. References and language that Shurtleff used in this book are now out dated it was published in 1978 , but the information he provides is timelessThe real meat of Audition is the second chapter, in which Shurtleff has outlined his 12 Guideposts In fact, for the acting class I took, the guideposts were the reason this book was assignedThe rest of the chapters in Audition are full of valuable information as well, but I would strongly recommend this book to actors and aspiring actors if only for the [...]

    24. Michael s book changed my view on human behavior It has given me some practical insight to why people do what they do He does not need to go into great depth, or give endless examples he because he states it so clearly Even if you aren t an actor, this will help you see deeper into your fellow humans.One example is when someone says, What It is rare that they say this because they didn t hear you So what makes a person say this Time to think Caught at something Surprised Another example is when [...]
