In his new book The Actor's Menu: A Character Preparation Handbook veteran acting coach Bill Howey takes an inventive approach that actors can use to create effective performances.
The Actor's Menu is available in bookstores and online at actorsmenu.com
The Actor's Menu teaches a personal, active approach to discovering and developing a character. According to Howey, "I use a menu as the metaphor for a method of developing a character, encouraging actors to discover the characters and stories within themselves". He leads actors through developing their own actor's menu from which they can draw. Howey's "Menu Style" emphasizes the strengths and unique qualities of the individual actor, allowing them to readily build a character from the choices they have developed through the use of his book.
Bill Howey brings 25 years of experience as a teacher, producer, director and filmmaker to the pages of The Actor's Menu. His continuing acting workshops have formed the basis for the book. Howey has worked as an acting coach on a number of TV series, and tutors public speakers and business executives, as well. He is the father of Steve Howey (Reba, DOA, Bride Wars, Stan Helsing)
