As its title suggests, Anne Johnston-Brown's revised and updated The Ten Commandments of Theater provides basic rules of the theatre that must be respected for a successful performance, as well in one's acting career. She also provides good insight into the audition process, again breaking it down into 10 sections, dealing with everything from headshots and resumes to dealing with rejection - and acceptance.
