Stella Adler. Grand, commanding, intimidating, pontifical, majestic, mesmerizing. The most compelling acting teacher of twentieth-century theatre. “Life beats down and crushes the soul, and art reminds you that you have one,” she said.
In his brilliantly edited second volume of the writings of Stella Adler, Stella Adler on America’s Master Playwrights, Barry Paris has reminded us of why she was also one of America's most acute readers of drama.
Barry Paris will appear in this, our final offering of 2014 Open Books Series, a program of free public talks curated by Literary Advisor Jonathan Kalb.
ABOUT THE SERIES: As a modern classical theater dedicated to the language and ideas of writers, Theater for a New Audience sees great thinking and writing about our theatrical heritage as essential to its mission. The free Open Books lecture series provides a forum for the authors of some of the best new books on theater to share their wisdom, perceptions and discoveries directly with our audiences. The lecture subjects range over the vast expanse of the theatrical past, drawing connections with the complex present as part of the theater’s ongoing reassessment of the classical.
