Anthony Abeson's actor-training is an amalgam of his work with Peter Brook, Jerzy Grotowski, Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler and Harold Clurman. Many of his students have gone on to successful careers in theatre, film and television. In his book "Acting 2.0: Doing Work that Gets Work in a High-Tech World" Mr. Abeson discusses the consequences of the American acting culture's emphasis on using rather than developing talent. In the opening of his book he says "I want to empower you with practical tools with which to do good work that gets work "in the room"--work on the stage and screen that inspires all of us, that arouses not prurience or violence but that precious "something," intangible but of inestimable value, that is "being destroyed from our lives": our humanity.
