Full of the wit and mischievous indiscretion that has gained him such a cult following, packed with gossip and insider knowledge of the theatre business, and containing enough savvy advice on acting to kickstart a career, West End Producer's book offers tips (both practical and deliciously impractical) on: getting into drama school (learning how to sit in a circle)- auditioning, and perfecting the neutral vacant stare pose- rehearsals and learning lines (various infallible methods)- the different kinds of actor, from sex pest to company idiot- acting techniques, including how to act in a serious play- combating boredom (and avoiding backstage naughtiness)- the correct way to bow at the curtain call. Also included in the book are many of West End Producer's most memorable tweets, miniature comic salvos despatched with all the shrewdness of a man who truly knows his Barrowmans from his Balls.
