Acting: The First Six Lessons (Bridges) Script
Beau Bridges, winner of three Emmys, two Golden Globes, and a Grammy Award teams up with his daughter, actress Emily Bridges, to create this stage version of Richard Boleslavsky’s 1933 narrative about a dedicated acting teacher who, while instructing a young actress in her craft, gives her valuable lessons for living as well. Over the course of ten scenes, the action moves from the teacher’s studio to a small theater to a film set to Central park and back, and finally, to a moving denouement atop the Empire State Building in 1936.
