Description: If professions move in cycles of desirability and glamour, directing is surely in an ascendant phase. Actors by the dozens have tried their hand at it and playwrights and screenwriters increasingly direct their own work.

Based on nearly twenty years of directing and teaching experience, Thinking Like a Director is a practical handbook that aims to convey the experience of directing and the theatrical mind-set that successful directors possess. More than a mere set of guidelines, Michael Bloom's book details a comprehensive way of thinking about directing that covers every stage of a production -- from a director's first reading of a play through final rehearsals. Bloom reveals that the key to directorial thinking is a dual-perspective vision, focusing on the life of each character (internal point of view) and the structural elements (external) of a play. In this manner, all of the key elements for interpretation and working with actors are integrated into a single method. Bloom illustrates his techniques by utilizing one of America's most accessible and popular plays, The Gloss Menagerie, as his primary touchstone.

Concise and engaging, Bloom's book is for anyone who has ever uttered the phrase "But what I really want to do is direct".
