It's great for auditioning Actors

This book is a great tool for the auditioning Actor, it puts everything into perspective. An easy quick read with tons of great advice and information you always should have known.

Great for nervousness

Before I read this, I had a big problem with my confidence as well as with everything else. But this book really helped me believe in myself, believe it or not.

Great Advice!

This is a great book to read for actors! It tells you how to deal with nervousness and, turn it into a positive feeling for you to work with. This book has helped me out a lot. And, now, I know what to expect and, how to get through my next audition, with flying colors!

A useful book for serious actors

As a professional, working actor, I found this book inspiring. Whether you are a beginner, or someone who in a slump, or just someone wanting to keep her edge while waiting for the next auditon call, this book can help. There are sections on auditioning for stage, film and musical theatre...and there are definitely differences in those auditons.

Real-life tips from a working pro

I've read dozens of books on acting, and Audition is one of the best. Ms. Merlin, who originated the role of the mother in Fiddler on the Roof, packs a great deal of useful advice taken from her decades as a professional (read: paid) actor and casting director, and her thorough knowledge of the industry (both film and theater) comes through on every page. More than a book about auditioning, Audition covers all aspects of the acting profession. Most valuable to me was the chapter on acting choices, which outlines in the clearest terms I've ever seen how to analyze a scene for acting by using Merlin's nine steps. Also welcome is her firm but loving admonishments that we actors need to hear. It's like having the perfect Jewish mother give you advice on your acting career. Nu?
