“Quotable Actor” earns great Bloomsbury Review

posted in: Non-Fiction Book | 0

And here it is, from the Bloomsbury’s April edition:

“From Peter O’Toole (“Acting is just a matter of farting about in disguises”) to Rod Steiger (“Artists are the only true aristocrats”), there are as many points of view on acting, theater, film, the public, Shakespeare, and fame as there are actors (nearly 500) in The Quotable Actor. While many of the quotes are quite serious and often insightful, others are self-deprecating throw-away lines that sound varying degrees of sincerity. Actor, teacher, and director Damon DiMarco groups the quotes, taken from a variety of interviews and other media sources, into loose categories and sequences them to create a sort of dialogue among the different speakers, with overly portentous or dramatic voices balanced by the more flippant comments. While a more careful thematic editing might have yielded a more cohesive work, The Quotable Actor is an entertaining and informative read recommended for theatre and movie fans everywhere and a must read for starstruck aspiring thespians.”
