Drama: An Actor's Education (Large Print) :
In this riveting personal history, John Lithgow shares a backstage view of the life and career that took place before he became a nationally known star. Above all, Lithgow's memoir is a tribute to his father, Arthur, who brought theater to John's boyhood. From bedtime stories to Arthur's illustrious productions, performance and storytelling were cherished parts of family life. Drama tells of the Lithgows' countless moves between Arthur's gigs and details a young actor's introduction to the undeniable power of theater.
As Lithgow relives his storied career, he cuts to the heart of why actors are driven to perform, and why people are driven to watch them do it. But he also chronicles the harrowing moments of his past, reflecting on mistakes large and small and the love of a father who set him on the road to a life onstage. Funny, affecting, and thoroughly engrossing, Drama pulls back the curtain on the making of one of our most beloved actors.
