Writing in a direct and humorous style, Louis Fantasia shows how to understand both the vocabulary and the structure and essential dramatic event of each play. He provides exercise monologues, exercise scenes and tools for textual analysis; explains correct breathing; and lays out his philosophies of training and performance.
