Stella Adler: The Art of Acting
Stella Adler was one of the 20th Century's greatest figures. She is arguably the most important teacher of acting in American history. Over her long career, both in New York and Hollywood, she offered her vast acting knowledge to generations of actors, including Marlon Brando, Warren Beatty, and Robert De Niro. The great voice finally ended in the early Nineties, but her decades of experience and teaching have been brilliantly caught and encapsulated by Howard Kissel in the twenty-two lessons in this book.

Heaven's Gate, by comparison, was a party in Paradise. Some of cinema's legendary artists - renowned for their work with Fellini, Godard, Fassbinder, and Herzog among others - would unwittingly unite to create the greatest financial disaster in movie history: The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. Andrew Yule goes behind the scenes of Gilliam's epic and unravels, twist by agonizing twist, the contorted drama which saw the original budget of $23.5 million rocket to an astronomical $46 million - making it one of the most expensive features in history. Hardcover.

The Playbill Broadway Yearbook: June 2013 to May 2014
Taking the format of a school yearbook, the tenth edition of The Playbill Broadway Yearbook is packed with photos (more than 4 000, many in color) and memorabilia from the entire 2013-2014 Broadway season. This edition documents the more than 70 Broadway shows of that season - which is every show that ran during the season - not just the new shows like Bullets Over Broadway, Aladdin, After Midnight, Bridges of Madison County, If/Then and Beautiful, but the long-running ones from seasons past, like The Book of Mormon, Matilda, Once, Motown, and Wicked. In addition to all the headshots of all the actors who appeared in Playbill, the book has photos of producers, writers, designers, stage managers, stage hands, musicians, ushers - even Sky the winner of the Westminster Kennel Club competition, who did a walk-on in Kinky Boots. This year's roster is expected to top 10 000 (human) names. There is also a wealth of photos from Broadway insider events, including Gypsy of the Year Broadway Bares Forbidden Broadway and the annual Broadway League softball championship players. To top it all off, each production was asked to appoint a member of the cast or crew to report on things only those who worked backstage would know: Opening night presents, daily rituals, celebrity visits, ghostly encounters, favorite health tips and regimens, memorable ad-libs, etc. Correspondents range from stage managers and dancers to featured players, understudies, and, in some cases, the star of the show.

The Artist as Citizen
(Amadeus). The Artist as Citizen is a compilation of Joseph W. Polisi's articles and speeches from his two-decade tenure as president of the Juilliard School. His writings focus on the role of the artist in American society as a leader and communicator of human values. The extended prologue includes Polisi's recollections of his early days at Juilliard and the selection process that resulted in his appointment as the school's sixth president. Also included is a discussion of the important role that Juilliard plays in the workings of Lincoln Center. Polisi makes a strong point that "there should be no dividing line between artistic excellence and social consciousness." He contends that the traditional "self-absorbed artist" is the wrong model for the arts in America in the 21st century.

The Best American Short Plays 2010-2011
Applause is proud to continue the series that for over 70 years has been the standard of excellence for one-act plays in America. As previous series editor Ramon Delgado wrote in his introduction to EThe Best American Short Plays of 1989E the choice of entries for each edition has been based on the same goal: to include a balance among three categories of playwrights: 1) established playwrights who continue to practice the art and craft of the short play 2) emerging playwrights whose record of productions indicate both initial achievement and continuing artistic productivity and 3) talented new playwrights whose work may not have had much exposure but evidences promise for the future. From its inception EThe Best American Short PlaysE has identified new cutting-edge playwrights who have gone on to establish award-winning careers including Tennessee Williams Edward Albee Wendy Wasserstein David Mamet and Horton Foote. This volume Bill Demastes' first edition as series editor illustrates how well the short story play can grapple with the many dimensions of love. The selected plays present unique perspectives on the wide range of love's impact on our lives each giving a thoroughly modern twist to the idea that life would be so much easier (but also much less interesting) if we could only avoid love's mercurial influence.

Rockwell's analysis includes parallels among the arts, insights from one to another, as he brilliantly communicates his aesthetic experiences to the reader.

American Theatre Wing, an Oral History: 100 Years, 100 Voices, 100 Million Miracles
In 1943, a wounded soldier aided by a cane limped into the Stage Door Canteen, the American Theatre Wing s fabled New York club created to entertain the Allied forces. Two hours later, he was said to have left with a spring in his step and without the cane. This miracle is recounted in the lavish new book, The American Theatre Wing, an Oral History: 100 Years, 100 Voices, 100 Million Miracles. The other 999,999 miracles are more commonplace, if no less remarkable, told by the impassioned artists and theatre advocates who created and sustained this preeminent theatrical organization founded in 1917. While the American Theatre Wing is best known as the founder of the Tony Awards, its mission is also dedicated to preserving the past, celebrating the present, and fostering the future of American theatre by developing educational programs and distributing national grants and awards each year to performers and theatre companies. The organization also recently took under its wing the irreverent OBIE awards, the top honours for off-Broadway that has become a dynamic pipeline for Broadway. This coffee-table book, celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the American Theatre Wing, is a fascinating cornucopia of untold lore and never-before-seen photos as prismatic and unexpected as the theatre itself. The oral history traces the American Theatre Wing as a defender of the country s most romantic ideals through two world wars, presciently establishing an interracial policy at the Stage Door Canteen despite being denounced from the well of the United States Senate. In succeeding decades the ATW has burnished those ideals through its unflagging support of artists from Broadway, Off Broadway, and regional theatre many of whom vividly tell their own stories in the book, including Angela Lansbury, Patti LuPone, Audra McDonald, Harold Prince, Neil Patrick Harris, James Corden, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Inside the Plaza: An Intimate Portrait of the Ultimate Hotel
Since it first opened its doors in October 1907, the Plaza has been the hub of glamour and culture in New York. It is where F. Scott Fitzgerald lived during the Jazz Age, where Frank Lloyd Wright stayed while building the Guggenheim Museum, where the Beatles bivouacked when they invaded America, and where Macaulay Culkin stayed after spending all that time home alone. It's where Liza Minnelli grew up and Eloise acted up. Ward Morehouse III, who himself did some growing up at the hotel, has collected all the Plaza's gems, looked into all the nooks and crannies. In his newly revised and updated edition, Morehouse recounts the hotel's recent $450 million transformation, with its 181 luxury condominium residences, 282 guest rooms and suites, and landmark public spaces, such as the Oak Room and Oak Bar. He has created a special and personal account of the only storybook castle in America where anyone who desires to can stay overnight.

The Encyclopedia of Hollywood Film Actors: From the Silent Era to 1965
For decades, Screen World has been the film professional's, as well as the film buff's, favorite and indispensable annual screen resource, full of all the necessary statistics and facts. Now Screen World editor Barry Monush has compiled another comprehensive work for every film lover's library. In the first of two volumes, this book chronicles the careers of every significant film actor, from the earliest silent screen stars - Chaplin, Pickford, Fairbanks - to the mid-1960s, when the old studio and star systems came crashing down. Each listing includes: a brief biography, photos from the famed Screen World archives, with many rare shots; vital statistics; a comprehensive filmography; and an informed, entertaining assessment of each actor's contributions - good or bad! In addition to every major player, Monush includes the legions of unjustly neglected troupers of yesteryear. The result is a rarity: an invaluable reference tool that's as much fun to read as a scandal sheet. It pulsates with all the scandal, glamour, oddity and glory that was the lifeblood of its subjects. Contains over 1 000 photos!
