I couldn't believe how much I loved this book as I was reading it; Clurman's writing is crystal clear, and almost belletristic. I go back frequently over some of the chapters. It's a very wise book, both helpful for beginners to experts and pragmatic; it joins the best of Clurman's critical ideas to his practice. It also includes working notes on actual plays he directed, which are very helpful for seeing the theory in action. Highly recommended for anyone interested in acting, directing, or theater generally.

People told me that this is a great book so i picked it up awhile ago. It did help me prepare and gained some knowledge for my first directing. But thing to be aware is some information may not be useful in a present time as it was back then. If you are looking for a current up to date then this book may not be for you.

Along with Elia Kazan, who called Clurman a masterful director possessing the greatest mind he ever saw, Harold Clurman built a peerless career in American Theatre. Present here is his advice to all directors, that new (really only invented in the latter part of the 19th century)creature of the world's oldest art form. Clurman displays his analytical abilities certainly in discribing script breakdowns and picturalization, but he also reveals a real understanding of human nature. His advice on how to deal with problems and crises that always appear during a production prove most sagelike. Purchase this along with William Ball's superlative "A Sense Of Direction" along with William Converse's textbook "Directing For The Stage" to create a most helpful library for any director.

I'm new to directing and got much useful advice from Clurman. As he says in his introduction he doesn't give step by step instruction though his chapters follow a natural evolution of a play, at least a Broadway play. To get technical terms, stage locations, and so forth, I got also Stuart Vaughan's "Directing Plays"; they complement each other well. I doubt that any one book on directing can cover the subject completely; it's too complex. And none replace experience, especially knowledge gained from actors and other theatre professionals.

as expected!

Harold Clurman was a great director, yet he wrote very openly and humbly, willingly sharing his great knowledge and experience of the theater with the reader. He offers many helpful and insightful suggestions for would-be directors and anyone interested in this subject matter. I found his information about Michael Chekhov's "pyschological gestures" most enlightening. Clurman's detailed analysis of each main character in a play, from that character's own perspective, was very helpful.
Clurman goes through the entire process, from script-selection to opening night and critiques.
I go back and forth between this book and Thomas A. Kelly's book on stage management, to see all sides of theater productions.
This book is a must for theater aficionados.
