A Dream of Passion: the Development of the Method Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of A Dream of Passion: the Development of the Method

Strasberg, a stage actor in the 1920s and 1930s, and then Artistic Director of the famous Actors Studio and Lee Strasberg Theatre Institutes, where such stars as Monroe, Brando, Paul Newman, Jane Fonda, Al Pacino, Dennis Hopper and many others got at least some of their training, offers a half-history, half-autobiography.
