Stella Adler was one of the most influential acting teachers of all time, a legendary force of nature whose generations of students include Marlon Brando, Karl Malden, Anthony Quinn, Diana Ross, Robert De Niro, Warren Beatty, Annette Benning, and Mark Ruffalo.
This long-awaited companion to her book on the master European playwrights brings to life America's most revered playwrights, whom she knew, loved, and worked with. Brilliantly edited by Barry Paris, Adler's lectures on the giants of twentieth-century theater feature her indispensable insights into such classic plays as "Long Day's Journey into Night," "The Skin of Our Teeth," "A Streetcar Named Desire," "Come Back, Little Sheba," "The Glass Menagerie," and "Death of a Salesman," while shedding new light on such lesser known gems as Tennessee Williams's "The Lady of Larkspur Lotion" and Arthur Miller's "After the Fall." Illuminating, revelatory, inspiring--this is Stella Adler at her electrifying best.
