Until recent times, acting wisdom was passed on through an oral tradition called "tips." Presented here are 507 tips, including the way to set up a laugh, the use of opposites, a clear definition of "actions," how to use a "breath score," and even how to react if you're fired. The tips are simple to implement and will lead to a better day at auditions and rehearsals, and a better night in performance. It's like having an acting coach in your rehearsal bag!
