Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Jory, whose 31-year tenure as artistic director of the venerable Actors Theatre of Louisville ends this fall when he joins the drama faculty of the University of Washington, has assembled a pastiche of pointers that is a Helpful Hints from Heloise for actors. And when the producer of some 1300 professional works and a leading member of the brain trust behind The Humana Festival, the most significant incubator of new plays in the country, wants to dish on acting, actors listen. Arranged under a dozen major headings that include obligatory sections such as textual study, role building, technique, and strategy, each of the 205 tips is a succinct, one-page chestnut that will benefit actors of all levels. Jory s advice is both practical and theoretical, pedestrian and elevated. One particularly revelatory tip, Transitions, divulges what Jory the director most closely watches for in auditions. This is the kind of soup-to-nuts guide actors are starving for, and as a result there may be fewer starving actors. Another dead-on entry in Smith and Kraus s Career Development Series, this should be acquired by all collections supporting the needs of actors. Barry X.
