Set in Russia at the turn of the century, the play focuses on 3 educated, well-bred sisters whose romances and careers have turned out disastrously. They share a house in the country with their witless brother and his shrewish wife. Obsessed with the idea that all their problems are caused by living in the provinces, they dream of returning to their childhood home in Moscow. Like other Chekhov heroes, they are sensitive but paralyzed and incapable of altering the course of their lives. This is a filmed version of the famed Actors Studio production directed by Lee Strasberg, which ran for 119 performances on Broadway

Masterstvo aktera : Stanislavsky-Boleslavsky-Strasberg : Istoriya, Teoriya, Praktika by Sergeĭ Cherkasskiĭ( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in Russian and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressed to all people of theatre, this book includes the fundamental research, based on Sergei Tcherkasski’s doctoral dissertation, on the directing and teaching of Richard Boleslavsky (1889–1937) and Lee Strasberg (1901–1982) as a development of the Stanislavsky System. The author closely scrutinizes documents of the life and work of the Moscow Art Theatre and its First Studio that became a cradle for the most important discoveries of Stanislavsky into actor training in the 1900s and 1910s. The book continues with exploration of the artistic creation and training methodology of the American Laboratory Theatre (1923–1930), the Group Theatre (1931–1940) and the Actors Studio (since 1947). Sergei Tcherkasski looks at history of American and Russian theatre of the 20th century, raises fundamental questions on the art of acting and actor training and provides specific exercises from the practice of Stanislavsky, Boleslavsky and Strasberg

James Lipton hosts an evening of discussion with film and stage actor Kevin Spacey. Spacey speaks about performing in high school productions in high school in California; his studies at The Juilliard School in New York, N.Y.; and getting cast in the 1986 Broadway revival of Eugene O'Neill's Long day's journey into night, in which he worked with veteran performer Jack Lemmon. At this point Spacey, who previously performed stand-up comedy, does several impressions of famous stars. Spacey discusses landing a role in Mike Nichols' film Heartburn; returning to the theater for the 1991 Broadway production of Lost in Yonkers by Neil Simon; his role as Roger "Verbal" Kint in the motion picture version of Glengarry Glen Ross; his experience directing the motion picture Albino alligator; his role as Det. Sgt. Jack Vincennes in the motion picture L.A. confidential; his return to the Broadway stage again in the role of Hickey in the 1999 revival of O'Neill's The iceman cometh; and his role as Lester Burnham in the motion picture American beauty. The discussion is illustrated with clips from American beauty, L.A. confidential, Hurlyburly, and The iceman cometh. Spacey elaborates on his reliance on instinct and spontaneity as an actor; his incorporation of himself into the characters he plays; how he chooses a project; and acting for the stage versus film. A brief question and answer session with Spacey and the Actors Studio master's degree students concludes the program
