In 1963 he joined the acting company of Chicago's Second City Theatre, and in 1965 founded the Indiana Theatre Company while doing post-graduate work at Indiana University. In 1966 he became Artist-in-Residence at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Fine Arts and Company Director of the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre. In 1968 he joined the faculty at Carnegie-Mellon University. In 1970 he became Head of the Acting Program at the Yale Drama School. From Yale, he moved to York University in Toronto as Chairman of the Programme in Theatre. He moved to the west coast as a tenured Associate Professor at the University of California at Riverside from 1973 to 1974, and from 1974 to 1981 he was Dean and Artistic Director of the School of Theatre at The California Institute of the Arts, where he remains a part-time faculty member to the present day. He has been a Master Teacher at the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Sidney and the Victorian College of Art in Melbourne, Australia, the National Theatre School of Canada, and the O'Neill Theatre Institute, and many other schools. His book, THE ACTOR AT WORK, has been in print for thirty-four years and a ninth edition appeared in 2004. In 1999 a new book, THE ACTOR IN YOU, appeared, and a second edition was published in 2001. The two books are the most widely used acting textbooks in the country. Benedetti also wrote THE DIRECTOR AT WORK, with a Foreword by John Houseman. Benedetti has directed extensively at such theatres as The Tyrone Guthrie Theatre, the Oregon, Colorado, and Great Lakes Shakespeare Festivals, the Milwaukee, South Coast, and San Diego Repertory Theatres, and the Pittsburgh Playhouse. He was also guest director at the Melbourne Theatre Company, directing the Australian premiere of GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS. His 1981 recreation of the Futurist opera, VICTORY OVER THE SUN for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art was featured at the Berlin Festival, The DeMeervat in Amsterdam, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the Smithsonian Museums in Washington, DC. Throughout his career, Benedetti has also worked as a stage and film actor, appearing in such stage roles as King Lear, Falstaff, and the Cook in Mother Courage, and on such TV shows as Hill Street Blues , LA Law, and Cheers. In 1991 he entered the world of film and television when he became President of Anasazi Productions, owned by his friend and former Carnegie-Mellon student, Ted Danson. During his four years with Anasazi, he executive-produced the feature film, PONTIAC MOON, and three television movies, MERCY MISSION and FIGHT FOR JUSTICE for NBC, and ON PROMISED LAND for the Disney Channel, starring Joan Plowright. Beginning in 1996, Benedetti became an independent writer/producer. In 1996 he wrote and produced the Hallmark film, THE CANTERVILLE GHOST, starring Patrick Stewart and Neve Campbell, which won all TV categories in the Family Film Awards. He has since won three Emmys, two for Best Television Movie. In 1999 Benedetti produced A LESSON BEFORE DYING (also for HBO) starring his former CalArts student Don Cheadle, and Cicely Tyson. Also in 1999, Benedetti was Executive Producer of the Showtime film, ALDRICH AMES: TRAITOR WITHIN , starring Timothy Hutton and Joan Plowright. During these film years, Benedetti also continued to teach acting, and film and television, at CalArts and USC. In 2000, two new books, ACTION! Acting for Film and Television and FROM CONCEPT TO SCREEN: An Overview of Film and Television Production , were published by Allyn & Bacon. In 2003, he also produced and edited CREATIVE POSTPRODUCTION: Editing, Visual and Sound Effects, and Music for Film and Television. In 2002, Benedetti returned full-time to his first love, the theatre. He directed his own adaptation of Pirandello's SIX CHARACTERS LOOKING FOR A WRITER, using a mix of live action, live video, and pre-taped video to extend Pirandello's theatrical metaphor into the realm of video. First done at the Quantum Theatre in Pittsburgh, Benedetti reworked the show for the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles in 2003. In February, 2004, Benedetti directed the premiere of his original play, UNDOING SALK (about Jonas Salk) at the Pittsburgh Playhouse.
