In the absence of full-length texts on actor-director coaching for the stage, Forrest Sears aims to fill the gap with his book, Director Actor Coach: Solutions for Director/Actor Challenges. With a friendly, informal tone and easy-to-understand concepts and exercises, it's geared toward those involved in college- and university-level theatre arts programs, and presents an attractive supplement to the traditional instructional methods utilized in both first- and second-year directing courses.
