Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Professor Taylor (brother of James) takes his vast experience touring and performing and utilizes it to help students hone their stage performance abilities. Now this help is available to all of us. Taylor leads those of us interested in some aspect of live performances through a myriad of small and not so small details, from why a person might wish to perform to the money woes of an actor/performer. This is a tremendously readable text for actors and musicians, or any performance-based stage seeker. I would recommend this book for both public and school libraries. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, Pocket Books, 144p, 21cm, $12.95. Ages 16 to adult. Reviewer: Elsie Jacobs; Teacher & Libn., Kalispell, MT, July 2000 (Vol. 34 No. 4)
