More than an entertaining read, the book hones in on the essentials of what storytelling is, and makes the case that to give drama its true potential, the actor needs to get out of the way. The more we focus on the artist, the less we see the work of art. In our age of media motivated artistic narcissism, this is revolutionary stuff.And more than this, Haworth looks into the journey of acquiring true Confidence, and how the actor can find the right relationship with the various audiences to be confronted – which includes artistic colleagues. He examines the paying audience’s experience, and how artists can bring the potent power of drama into people’s lives. Haworth dissects the actor’s challenge with words, text and script. He takes the actor through the difference between Expression and Doing. And much more. Everything here is to help actors become as free in their work as is humanly possible.If you are just joining the acting world, or looking for new insight, you might find this an inspiring read.*****************Reflection on the Looking Glass, is not only a treasure chest brimming with funny and meaningful anecdotes, it also offers a fresh perspective and great advice on acting.Jean-Michel LeGal, Actor/Writer
