After over 25 years in theater and having been lucky enough to experience the euphoria that comes with applause for a job well done, Barbara Turino’s Getting Your Act Together helps the reader to understand—indeed, experience—this incredible feeling. Even if you never get on a theatrical stage, your journey through this book will allow you to see how the emotional highs and lows of performing on stage contrast with your “performances” in your professional life and personal life.
Learning and practicing the techniques that an actor uses to be successful on stage can help motivate you to become a true performer, enjoying the success, the newfound meaning, and, yes, the ovations that can come with that. Getting Your Act Together teaches how to use the skills the actor uses on your own stage – the stage of life.
