“Actors and directors have written about it, psychologists, philosophers, social scientists, and even biologists have pondered it. What is acting, and how is it done? How does someone become someone else? Can someone become someone else? How much of what an actor does is due to that mysterious quality we call talent?”
Richard Brestoff, Great Acting Teachers and Their Methods

“So, one day in Athens in 534 b.c., he went to witness one of Thespis’s performances. What he saw disturbed him so much, that he confronted Thespis afterwards. He demanded to know why Thespis was not ashamed to tell so many lies before so many people. Thespis replied that such lying was harmless so long as it was done in play. Solon angrily struck his staff to the ground and exclaimed, “yes, but if we allow ourselves to praise and honor make-believe like this, the next thing will be to find it creeping into our serious business.” 1”
