Fundamentals : BioMethod

This is the biggest listing on my Theatre Books pages (old).

Since this is general list, I can't write my subject comments, but I can feature some of the books on this page.

Go Shakespeare (I direct Twelfth Night in the Spring'2000).

Mamet is good.

In Directors, Actors, Writers section --
Artuad, Peter Brook books, Brecht, Grotowski...

Schechner's titles...

If you are a director, or if you serious about theatre -- Meyerhold.
All and each on this list!

Stanislavsky? Maybe a better choice is about Stanislavsky, than Stanislavsky's books (badly written).

If you saw other book pages, you realize that my selections reflect my interests; there are many other sites with bigget and better listings. I did it to have "book pages" -- each big theatre site should have such pages.

Amazon takes care of the rest, all quuestions are to them.


I plan to establish a fund for Russian Theatre and specifically for new Russian playwrights.

This is my project for after Y2K -- I'll place the ads on my educational pages and will use the commissions for the Fund.

Our family sites Sellassie Cyber University do the same for Ethiopia and Diaspora, you can read about it, but it doesn't look that Russia will get on her feet any time soon.

You can read more about Russian American Theatre (RAT) project -- 1992-94. They needed support then and they need it now.

Read Freedman's articles for Moscow Times on Russian Theatre today and Russia's writers for stage.

Read -- and write back!

There are some repetitions, but I have no time to fix all the book pages.

Unlikely the listing will be updated any time soon. To keep with the new titles, see NEW BOOKS page. August, 1999
