449 Method Acting and "Bad Hamlet" (with Isaac Butler)

449 Method Acting and "Bad Hamlet" (with Isaac Butler)

We all talk about actors who use the Method, but do we really understand what that means? And how exactly has the Method changed the way we take in drama? In this episode, Jacke talks to theater expert Isaac Butler about his book The Method: How the Twentieth Century Learned to Act. And in a special bonus, Isaac also tells Jacke about the Shakespeare variant known as "Bad Hamlet."
