Summary

The vital companion for actors in rehearsal this is a handy pocket sized thesaurus of action words to revitalize performance.

Actors need actions. They cannot "act" adjectives. They need verbs which give them an action to perform.

Long a secret of the acting community are the random lists of action words (in very dog-eared photocopy format) that circulate through rehearsal rooms. This book pulls these vital words together and makes them available for the first time in an organized and comprehensive format.

Actions are active verbs. "I tempt you." "You taunt me." In order to perform an action truthfully --and thus convincingly--the actor needs to find exactly the right action to suit a particular situation and a particular line reading.

This is where Actions: The Actors' Thesaurus comes to the rescue. Author and director Terry Johnson contributes the foreword.
