Ben Books Brand New Melrose Place
So a big congrats to Ben Milliken on his new gig. So happy for you.
"Can't thank you enough for your help on this one - your approach to the work is so refreshing. Stripping it down to the complete truth of what is happening in each moment of a scene, no matter what the material is. Your constant belief and guidance enables me to completely trust myself so that the work comes from a truthful and personal place within me."
It's really all thanks to your hard work.
There's a great documentary called, "Theater of War." It's a behind-the-scenes look at the Public Theatre's staging of Berthold Brecht's "Mother Courage and Her Children" in Central Park starring Meryl Streep; as well as a look into the life of Berthold Brecht.
Both Brecht and Streep share the same unromantic, nuts and bolts philosophy toward art: It's not mysterious; just hard work.
Rehearsals are the work. That's where you toil in the mine to discover that one nugget of gold that helps you manifest a great performance.
