Far from innocent metaphors, Interchangeable Parts illuminates the striking overlaps between industrial rhetoric and practice and the development of theatrical and cinematic techniques for rehearsal and performance. Drawing from interviews, archives, and close readings of the textual legacy of major and lesser-known teachers and theoreticians, Holtcamp narrates the story of how actors learned to learn to act, and what that process, for both stage and screen, owed to the interchangeable parts and mass production revolutions of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.""@en ;
