RAVES FOR YOU CAN ACT!
“Reading D.W. Brown’s lovely and miraculous book, and seeing acting through his brilliant eyes, I found myself again passionate for the nuts and bolts of craft and the simple beauty of expression he so gorgeously clarifies. You Can Act! proves the theatrical endeavor to be a brave act of pure being and soul.”
—Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic Park, Independence Day
“I remember feeling a sense of security from D.W. He provided an atmosphere within which the insecure, novice actor could safely strive, explore, and even fail.”
—Robin Wright-Penn, The Princess Bride, Forrest Gump
“D.W. Brown guided me in how to work with actors. I‘ve incorporated the basic premises he works under and he gave me a lot of tips. We’ve spent time talking about character and he raises interesting questions and suggests approaches we might take in pulling off certain scenes. He has really helped me a lot.”
—Sam Raimi, director, Spider Man 1, 2 & 3
