Abstract:

"For the first edition of Stanislavski's Legacy, Elizabeth Reynolds Hapgood, Stanislavski's friend and translator, gathered together writings from Stanislavski's later years, including many that were left behind following his death. These vignettes provide an ideal introduction to the essence of Stanislavski's work and also offer sparkling offhand glimpses into theatre history." "Among the additions to this expanded edition are a series of brilliant letters about the interpretation of Othello and "Memories of the Past ... Dreams of the Future," a complete new section in which Stanislavski speaks in various ways of his vision of the theatre and actors of the future."--Jacket.
