What an amazing interview. Speaking of 'poetic realism'
This show completely inspired & informed me. I can't wait to read the book. Big thanks to the obviously talented Lola Cohen & Mrs. Strasberg for bringing this
resource to a whole new generation. Very timely! From
what i just listened to, I think this book will be good
for anyone who loves life. Thank you again for your
quality broadcasting. Best regards, Robin Harvey

What do you think of new physical techniques like Viewpoints, Suzuki, and Boal that have replaced the old, internal Method?

Both Lola Cohen and Mrs. Strasberg are wonderful, intelligent, and exceptionally talented women. (Both of whom I have had the great honor of working with.) The minute I heard they were going to be on your show I ran to my radio as fast as I could so I could listen. Many, many people have waited many, many years for this book to be written and it's so wonderful they have brought this great gift to the world of theatre and beyond. EVERYONE will get something out of this book because The Method is life...BRAVO!!!
