This is essential reading for anyone interested in directing or acting. Judith Weston's brilliance is to recognize that directors, actors, writers, and technicians are involved in a process that is at essence a collaboration. In order for them to have the best shot at creating something true and meaningful, they must share a language and a method of exchange that fosters creative cooperation. Weston rightly sees the director as the central figure in inspiring the energy of a production's harmony. She advises the prospective director on every aspect of a stage or film production, showing how the director can draw the best performances possible from actors. -- From

"Directing Actors is a method for establishing creative, collaborative relationships with actors, getting the most out of rehearsals, troubleshooting poor performances, and giving briefer directions. Ms. Weston discusses what constitutes a good performance, what actors want from a director, what directors do wrong, script analysis, how actors work, and the director/actor relationship. This book is based on the author's twenty years of professional acting and eight years of teaching Acting for Directors."--Back cover.
