The culmination of archival research and fieldwork spanning six years, it is the only work of its kind that studies the history of actor training from an international perspective. It presents the current moment as crucial for student actors and those that teach them.

All recognized for their distinguished reputations by industry professionals and acting teachers alike, the book examines each program's pedagogical approach, administrative structure, funding apparatus, and alumni success. In doing so, it identifies the challenges facing acting schools today and offers a new direction for training in the twenty-first century. This book will be of interest of theatre and performance scholars, artists, students, and teachers"--
