There is no general consensus about how Shakespeare ´´should´´ be played. There are no rules. But, while the Bard created superhuman characters and placed them in situations that stretch the imagination to its limits, he also provided his actors with the keys to playing them. In A Shakespearean Actor Prepares, actor, director and teacher Adrian Brine teams up with celebrated actor Michael York to reveal these keys. In pointing out sources of energy in Shakespeare´s plays, they make it possible for an actor to galvanize his fantasy - and liberate his talent. Shakespeare knew more about the art of acting and the art of theater than any other playwright. Discover his secrets in this remarkable guide. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael York.

New York Times bestseller One of my dad’s favorite jokes about getting older was: ´´I went out for coffee when I was twenty-one and when I got back I was fifty-eight!” I get what he meant now. Time flies. My first book, If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a ´´B´´ Movie Actor, was published back in 2001 and it chronicles the adventures of a ´´mid-grade, kind of hammy actor´´ (my words), cutting his teeth on exploitation movies far removed from mainstream Hollywood. This next book, an ´´Act II” if you will, could be considered my ´´maturing years” in show business, when I began to say ´´no” more often and gravitated toward self-generated material. Taking stock in the overall quality of my life, I fled Los Angeles and moved to a remote part of Oregon to renew, regroup and reload. If that sounds tame, the journey from Evil Dead to Spider-Man to Burn Notice was long, with plenty of adventures/mishaps along the way. I never pictured myself hovering above Baghdad in a Blackhawk helicopter, facing a pack of wild dogs in Bulgaria, or playing an aging Elvis Presley with cancer on his penis - how can you predict this stuff? The sheer lunacy of show business is part of the fun for me and I hope you´ll come along for the ride. – Bruce ´´Don’t Call Me Ash” Campbell An icon of B movies and a champion of independent filmmaking, Bruce Campbell is an actor, director and writer best known for his roles as Ash in the Evil Dead franchise and Sam Axe on the hit TV show Burn Notice. Written and read by Bruce Campbell. Co-written with Craig Sanborn. Recording and sound design by Sean McCoy at Oregon Sound Recording. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bruce Campbell.

The man. The movies. The life. The legend. He´s played a deranged groundskeeper, a bellowing lounge singer, a paranormal exterminator, and a grouchy weatherman. He is William James ´´Bill´´ Murray, America´s greatest national treasure. From his childhood lugging golf bags at a country club to his first taste of success on Saturday Night Live, from his starring roles in Hollywood blockbusters to his reinvention as a hipster icon for the 21st century, The Big Bad Book of Bill Murray chronicles every aspect of his extraordinary life and career. He´s the sort of actor who can do Hamlet and Charlie´s Angels in the same year. He shuns managers and agents, and he once agreed to voice the lead in Garfield because he mistakenly believed it was a Coen Brothers film. He´s famous for crashing house parties all over New York City - and if he keeps photobombing random strangers, he might just break the Internet. Part biography, part critical appreciation, part love letter, and all fun, this enormous volume chronicles every Murray performance in loving detail, recounting all the milestones, legendary ´´Murray stories´´, and controversies in the life of this enigmatic performer. 1.
