Words of Wisdom and other insights

I kid you not,  two excellent articles have come my way today, thanks to colleagues on Twitter.

First, read this article from American Theatre January issue, full of rich advice for singers, but boy do these words of wisdom apply to actors also!  It is MORE than essential for actors to develop a solid vocal technique, and to maintain a regular training regime if they want to have a lengthy career.

Next, check out Travis Bedard’s latest blog post, (Cambiare Productions).  He has such perceptive insights into the world of independent theatre, what it is, why it exists, and how it manages to sustain itself in the face of constant predictions of its imminent demise.

Lastly, I have just created a short video, introducing myself and my thoughts on why actors need to work on their voices.

Your comments and ratings would be most welcome.

    Brilliant observation on the whys we use to ignore the importance of words and how we speak them. But “someone” recognizes their importance–and will continue to use them against us with ever-increasing success–unless we wake up to the idea that it is, in fact, being done. Our love for words must be commensurate with the level of utility “others” find in them. Great stuff, Flloyd–once again. JM
