“…This book is a must read for anyone who is seriously interested in taking their acting skills to greater levels. In my own personal experience I can vouch for everything that is taught in this book. I did every exercise mentioned in the book under Terry’s personal guidance and I have applied the techniques and methods in many professional circumstances.
I have been a professional actor who has worked on television and film in both New York and Hollywood for close to twenty years now. If followed carefully the exercises in this book will open up the inner life that an actor needs to make characters and scenes come to vivid life.
I really can’t say enough great things about Terry. I think he is a treasure in the acting/theatre world and I am so grateful that he has written this book because I live in Hollywood now and having the book feels like he is right there with me. Thanks Terry! You are a true master!”

Amazon Summary: Terry Schreiber is a noted theater producer, director, acting teacher, and founder of the prestigious T. Schreiber Studio in New York City. Terry here traces his forty-year career in the vanguard of New York’s off-off-Broadway scene, crisply summarizing the tricks, survival techniques and tensions entailed in striving to stay alive while producing scores of quality productions on little capital, much love, imaginative entrepreneuring, the aid of many others, and a bit of good luck here and there. Filled with anecdotes and pragmatic advice, the richly textured book moves beyond a chronological account of Terry’s career and the history of his Studio to present Terry’s thoughts on past events and how they shaped his philosophy as both a teacher and a long-standing leader of the theater community. This is a must-read for up-and-coming indie theater artists. It contains invaluable how-to-and how-not-to-guidance on making theater on a “short shoelace.”
