The other way : an alternative approach to acting and directing by Charles Marowitz( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marowitz examines every aspect of contemporary theatre practice including auditions, first-readings, the rehearsal process, classical techniques and performance art. He delves beyond sub-text, probing the labyrinth that exists beneath conventional psychology. Rethinking Stanislavsky, debunking Strasberg, filtering and reconstituting the ideas of Bertolt Brecht and Antonin Artaud, Marowitz comes up with a tantalizing new brew of ideas with which actors and directors can ply their craft into the new millennium

Recycling Shakespeare by Charles Marowitz( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recycling Shakespeare is an irreverent assault on the Shakespearian establishment which presumes to have squatter's rights on the 'collected works' which it treats as holy writ. Marowitz, himself both a critic and director with successful productions of nearly a dozen Shakespeare plays behind him, shows how Shakespeare, like so many of his own earlier sources, can be reused, restructured and recycled for contemporary consumption -- Provided by the publisher
Artaud at Rodez by Charles Marowitz( Book )

12 editions published between 1977 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

9 editions published between 1986 and 1991 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The other Chekhov : a biography of Michael Chekhov, the legendary actor, director & theorist by Charles Marowitz( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A charismatic actor, a compelling director, and a teacher who developed a dynamic antidote to Russian Naturalism, Chekhov remains the invisible man of the modern theatre. Was he, as Lee Strasberg alleged, a dangerous mystic who would subvert the vigor of Stanislavsky's teachings and undermine the integrity of The Group Theatre? Or was he, as his disciples - Yul Brynner, Ingrid Bergman, Jack Palance, Leslie Caron, Jennifer Jones, Patricia Neal, Anthony Hopkins, and Jack Nicholson - believed, a man who had discovered a unique approach to acting that transcended the precepts enshrined in Stanislavsky's "system"?"--Jacket

4 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exit the king, the killer, and Macbett : three plays by Eugène Ionesco( Book )

5 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exit the King is a highly stylized, ritualized death rite unfolding the final hours of the once-great king Berenger the First. As he dies, his kingdom also dies. His armies suffer defeat, the young emigrate, the seasons change overnight, and his kingdom's borders shrink to the outline of his throne. At last, as the curtain falls, the king himself dissolves into a gray mist. The Killer is a study of pure evil. Bérenger, a conscientious citizen, finds himself in a radiantly beautiful city marred only by the presence of a killer. Bérenger's determination to find the murderer in the face of official indifference and his final defeat at the hands of an impersonal, pitiless cruelty speak with the universality of Kafka's The Trial."--Publisher's description

14 editions published between 1965 and 1981 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roar of the canon : Kott and Marowitz on Shakespeare by Charles Marowitz( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bacchae was not only the last and greatest of Euripides' tragedies, it was very close to the last of the great Greek tragedies. The story of the play is in part about this cultural dissolution in Athens. It's also about the theatre itself, and how a sane society needs strong, intelligent theatre to survive."--Jacket

Charles Marowitz casts a critical eye upon the highpoints of the last theatrical decade, in preparation for a new millennium.

Marowitz dramatically captures the anger, anxiety, spectacle and questionable "correctness" that characterized the past decade
