    One thought on “On Directing”

    1. A decent/adequate survey of all the basic theatrical principles --supported by a rich trove of anecdotes--from a big name in the stage, Harold Clurman. Clurman's career goes back to 'The Group Theater' era in New York: Stella Adler, Elia Kazan, Lee Strasberg, Kim Stanley. He's worked with Richardson, Olivier, Guinness, Gielgud, young Brando, Matthau, Maldeneveryone.So the book is fine in that it rehashes all that. Whenever it was first released it may very well have been a wonderful read. When i [...]

    2. Some background first, for I feel that this book - and maybe any book on theater/theatre - coincides with one's own experience in the art. Here's mine. My first experience as an actor was when I was in church. I played an important shepherd in a musical called "No Phibbin' Mephiboseth". This was (much later) followed by a Middle School version of "The Hobbit" and then, in High School, I tried to act in at least two plays a year. College also found me acting many times. I have been in seven (I be [...]

    3. As comprehensive a guide to the process of directing as you can expect from a written text, carefully constrained and positioned by Clurman as simply his own perspective.Looking forward to digging into some of the play analyses in conjunction with the play itself.

    4. هارولد کلرمن یک نظریه پرداز تیاتر و یکی از بنیانگذاران "اکتورز استودیو" در نیویورک است. نظریات تیاتری او که بیشتر بر اساس روش استانیسلاوسکی بنا نهاده شده، در دوره ای بلند بر تیاتر آمریکا سایه انداخته بود. یکی از نمایش نامه نویسان مشهور دهه های بیست و سی قرن بیستم، "کلیفورد اودت [...]

    5. Re-read this one to get my head in directing space. I feel like Clurman is my uncle. The prose can be considered kind in this book. It almost feels as though he is (while providing erudite instruction) telling you stories on his front porch. That is not to say that this is a work of anything other than a sparkling intellect. I am better off for having read it again.

    6. This is the most straightforward book on directing for the theater. Clurman is the master at laying out, step-by-step the process of directing. A major tool for any aspiring director and a must-have for the bookshelves of the experienced director.

    7. This helped me figure out why directing came more naturally to me than acting. It was also really clear and practical, without being too basic.

    8. This book is the best book I've read about the subtle art of theatrical direction. It uses personal anecdote and also a balanced perspective to convey points. A must have for any theatre professional. The best thing is the examples at the back and even though the book is over 50 years old it still rings true. At times Harold even accurately predicts the future.
