If I ever manage to find myself sitting on a plane next to Parker Posey, please let it be like this book!⁠
Fair warning: I love Parker Posey's work.

The way the book is structured is a bit hodgepodge like a conversation can be, jumping from topic to topic, going form the mundane to intimate, to musings and back again.⁠

Picked up because I love The Office but was also curious about the realities of aspiring actors because that was my dream when I was pre teen/young teen. I'm not the target audience but it's interesting to see how things are in the field for people trying to start out. Was honestly a bit bored by the actor interviews at the end so this is between so so and pick

If you like The Office, you‘ll probably enjoy this one even though it‘s geared to those who want to get into the acting business. And with this one, I passed my goal for three audiobooks for #jumpstart2020, and am now 10 books into my #goodreadschallenge 😁📚📖🎧

The sensations of heat, cold, headache, drunkenness, nausea, and illness etc., are -conditions- of the scene; rarely is the scene -about- the cold or the headache. .. there to condition your actions truthfully .. with sensory accuracy and faith..

“No director can help you with substitutions since he has not been a part of your life experience. He will help you with the character elements he is after, dictate the place, the surroundings, the given circumstances, and define your relationship to the other characters in the play, but how you make these things real to yourself, how you make them exist is totally private work.”

This is a first. The paper in this edition is so pulpy? so coarse? that I got a SPLINTER. Kid you not, had to find a magnifying glass, a bright light and a dark background so I could tweeze the little, er, bugger, out of my finger. #thematerialworld #readinginjuries 📚❤️📚💙📚💚📚

“First, you must learn to know who -you- are. You must find your own sense of identity, enlarge this sense of self, and learn to see how that knowledge can be put to use in the characters you will portray on stage.”

I read this Nov 4-20 & gave it 4 ⭐️. It was a very enjoyable read and quite a few of Caine‘s lessons about acting can be applied to other jobs.

Rating: 3.5/5 stars.

It was a good book something you pick up, read and not really process because if you do, you realize it felt rushed. 🙈
