PART I

In a recent class I had two actors on stage doing the Meisner Repetition Exercise. If you’re not familiar with “Repetitions,” it’s an exercise in listening, reacting, and working off the other actor, as you repeat your partner’s behavior and they repeat it back to you again. (That’s a quick and simple description of repetitions. I assume most of you reading this are already familiar with the exercise. If not, don’t worry, as I’ll be addressing this in a later blog.) These two actors were on stage for about three minutes, and they shared great chemistry. When they finished I asked them this:

That said, let’s have a little fun with a few of my favorite comparisons.

It always makes me chuckle when I hear someone say, “Acting is the easiest job in the world. Anyone can do it.” Obviously, they have no idea what they’re talking about. They haven’t been through the many years of training and endless hours of rehearsal and performance to understand how wrong they are. There are so many different talents an actor needs to master in order to become skilled. Over the past few blogs we’ve discussed several of those talents including script breakdown, emotional control and physical control. Next, I like to discuss the voice.
