Medical Self-Care Magazine
Actor Jerry Wayne made a five-foot leap
onto the stage his dramatic entrance in
"Finian's Rainbow," the musical. He
remained on his hands and knees until they
rang down the curtain and brought on an
understudy. Thus began a three-year trial
and error search for a cure for his back. He
went to countless doctors, tried agonizing
months of bedrest, acupuncture, and even a
major operation. It was not until Jerry met
Raschad, a therapist who treated
parachutists in Libya, that he found relief.
The first half of the book, told with charm
and candor, recounts his search for a cure.
The second half is a clearly illustrated
group of effective, easy-to-follow exercises
which, if practiced regularly, faithfully, and
conscientiously, "may relieve you as they
did the author, who has been free of back
pain for sixteen years." The thesis is sound:
You strengthen your back. If your back is
strong you will not have backaches. It is
really as simple as that.

As Taught by Lorrie Hull
S. Lorraine Hull
Strasberg's Method, written by longtime Strasberg aide Lorrie Hull, provides actors, teachers, and directors with a comprehensive guide to Strasberg's work. This book was aptly described by Lee Strasberg's daughter Susan Strasberg in the foreword: "When I read Lorrie Hull's book, I thought, 'My God, she's done it! She's caught so much of the work.' She got the answers, wrote them down, used them in her own twelve years of teaching for my father and then translated it all into an understandable, explicit, practical book that offers valuable tools for any actor (beginner or professional) as well as for writers, directors, and teachers. I'm sure a lot of misconceptions about my father's work will be cleared up by this book. After reading Strasberg's Method, I feel sure that my father, 'Pop,' wherever he is, would be enormously pleased."
CONTENTS: BACKGROUND: The Rewards of Studying Method The Evolution of Strasberg's Method. ACTOR TRAINING: Relaxation Concentration Sense Memory Sequence and Description of Sensory Exercises Affective Memory Other Exercises Improvisation Preparing and Learning a Role Class Scene Studies. DIRECTING: Conclusion.
