Summary
This program examines the techniques and contributions of Lee Strasberg and Stella Alder to modern acting, explains how each devised his or her technique, considers the collaboration among and ultimate split between the two, and shows how contemporary actors utilize the techniques in character creation and performance. It explores the influence of Constantin Stanislavsky and his revolutionary acting method on Strasberg and Adler, discusses Strasberg's application of his interpretation of the technique, looks at the discontent with Strasberg's interpretation that drove Adler to study directly with Stanislavsky, and shows how that direct study encouraged her to develop her own technique. The program examines the differences in the acting approaches of Strasberg and Adler and emphasizes the many similarities between their theories and techniques. It includes footage of Joel Asher leading a young actress through exercises based on each technique and offers commentary from Lorrie Hull, Bill Smithers, Ron Burrus, Mel Shapiro, and Richard Brestoff
