Stella! Mother of Modern Acting (Hardback)

£25.00
Usually despatched within 7-10 days

Synopsis

At the turn of the 20th century - by which time acting had hardly evolved since classical Greece - Stella Adler became a child star of the Yiddish stage in New York, where she was being groomed to refine acting craft and eventually help pioneer its modern gold standard: method acting. For this book, Sheana Ochoa worked alongside Irene Gilbert, Stella's friend of 30 years, who provided Ochoa with a trove of Stella's personal and pedagogical materials and Ochoa interviewed Stella's entire living family, including her daughter Ellen; her colleagues and friends, from Arthur Miller to Karl Malden; and her students from Robert De Niro to Mark Ruffalo. Unearthing countless unpublished letters and interviews, private audio recordings, Stella's extensive FBI file, and class videos, Ochoa's biography introduces one of the most under recognised, yet most influential luminaries of the 20th century.
