The MethodThe Method: How the Twentieth Century Learned to Act
(Bloomsbury Publishing - Hardcover Book/Kindle Edition)
By Isaac Butler. Chronicles the history of the Method in a narrative that transports readers from Moscow to New York to Los Angeles, from The Seagull to A Streetcar Named Desire ... traces how a cohort of American mavericks—including Stella Adler, Lee Strasberg, and the storied Group Theatre—refashioned Stanislavski's ideas for a Depression-plagued nation that had yet to find its place as an artistic powerhouse. Long after its midcentury heyday, the Method lives on as one of the most influential—and misunderstood—ideas in American culture. 512 pages.
