Praise for Stella Adler
Stella Adler not only teaches acting, she teaches an artists approach to the craft, a cultural attitude to theatre and, by extension, a broad horizoned attitude and approach to every craft and all art.... It is both a delight and a treasure, finally, to have a book based on her classes. -Peter Bogdanovich
