Read the Classics

The Return of Odysseus, Claude Lorrain, 1644.

Actors should read the classics. They expand the mind, the body of reference for developing and understanding both characters and storylines, enforce cold reading, vocabulary and in general enrich the soul.

Classicly read actors have a wider range to pull from in their toolbox, and a deeper understanding of what it it is to be human and the subtext of the message.
