No one has had a greater influence on acting as we know it than Stanislavski. His "method" - or interpretations of it - has become the central force determining almost every performance we see on stage or screen

Stanislavski's Legacy is a companion volume to his three great teaching books - An Actor Prepares, Building a Character and Creating a Role

It is a carefully arranged selection of the articles, speeches, notes and memoirs written between 1898, when the Moscow Art Theatre opened, and his death in 1938

Among the items are a series of brilliant letters on the interpretation of Othello, the long and affectionate article "Memories of Chekhov" and a final section in which Stanislavski envisages the theatre and the actors of the future


"The most informal - and in some ways the most delightful - of all Stanislavski books" ~ Sir Michael Redgrave

"The legacy which Stanislavski and his collaborators have left us is, in all truth, magnificent; and its benefits are available not only to the actor and actress but to everyone who aspires to become a rounded human being" ~ Observer
