Alfieri ("A View From The Bridge") is one of Arthur Miller's most interesting characters. A good guy. Reasonable. Respectful. Honourable. He forms the symbolic "bridge" between the old world of the his forebears and the new world of Ameri...

More gorgeousness from “Stanislavsky and the Actor” (Jean Benedetti).

Actors are responsible for the maintenance and development of their skills. Students cannot just be passive recipients, dutifully obeying the tutors. They are the ones in class, they are doing the exe...
