    His directing method is one in which the director provides an environment of respect for the actor opposed to animosity, very similar to sidney lumet's philosophy in making movies which is film centric instead of theater centric as bell's book is.

    Some of ball's advice is not going to help you if you are an amateur.

    He gives the advice that actors, like cattle, can't hold too many ideas in their heads at one time so he urges the director to come up with a shorthand of small verbs or nouns with which the actor might make himself aware at all times.

    Seduce, for example, might be his direction to the actor playing cleopatra.

    They are sitting in a dark room and watching a bunch of people all lit up pretending to be real.

    Love this book, got it for the directing class i'm currently taking xd it could be the greatest textbook you've ever read or the worst, as the saying goes; to each their own; when you read this book it'll feels like the authors is actually teaching you and that your not reading off an old bored textbook.

    I shudder to use the word text book as that term implies dry academia- an approach which leads to the the death of the theatre- but really this book is indespensable to any theatre director.
