What We Do In Theatre is a must read book for aspiring actors. The author tells it like it is--no hiding the truth about the reality of working in the industry. I was looking for a book that would keep me grounded in reality about becoming an actor and this book did so. Mr. Metzler, lays down the foundations, the ground work and builds upon it stage by stage, in terms of a)the jobs and their descriptions, b)rules and procedures for going about each job, c) what it is like for the individuals in those positions and d) the reality of making or not making it in the business. I am glad I purchased the book because I learned about the struggles, the survival aspects and just a general knowledge of theatre that I did not have before. It reaffirmed my understanding that theatre may look easy from the audience standpoint but is no way easy from the actor, director or producer's side. I gained a whole new respect for the profession.

Bo Metzler's "What We Do" is the new essential book for everyone who is interested in show business, would like to be in show business, or who, like me, has been in show business all their lives. Seasoned professional or not, you'll learn new, valuable things about this industry.

Everyone in show business has been asked by family & friends, "So what exactly is it that you do?" Metzler, having experienced this, has written a book detailing the heirarchy of theater--a "who does what" approach that will inform novice and old pro alike.

There have been a lot of books about how to be a good producer, good director, good actor--but to my knowledge there has never been a compendium which outlines the basic responsibilities of everyone who works in theater.

Along with being a director and producer and actor in theater as generally defined, I am also a director with Rehabilitation Through the Arts--the breakthrough theater program taught in New York's maximum and medium security prisons. The process of theater--from writing to full production--is the most powerful rehabilitative tool I know. The people in our programs change the direction of their lives simply through the process of studying acting and putting on a production right in the middle of a big prison. I am using "What We Do" as the text for a class I'm teaching in a prison this winter. I know that learning about the structure of theater organization in this way is going to have a great effect on our future productions.

I hope that "What We Do" becomes an industry standard.

We all wished that someone would get around to writing a book that explains what all the terms and professions are in the world of the theatre. And Bob Metzler has conceived a brilliant compilation of the whole process of "putting on a show" and explains it all with an amusing touch. It's more than a mere dictionary of terms. If you've been immersed in the theatre world all your life, or curious or just putting your big toe into the ocean of theatre, you need this book. Dive in and get this book! His preface is worth the price itself!

As a choral conductor and musical theatre director for over 35 years, I have found Metzler's book, "What We Do, Working In The Theatre" to be an inspiring affirmation of all that we teach in music and theatre education, as well as an excellent resource for academic colleagues, administrators and aspiring actors' parents and families. Prior to the book's publication, I was asked by the author to read, review and critique it, and honestly found nothing with which to disagree! Metzler's clear and concise descriptions and explanations of each and every "role" in theatre arts have proven to be invaluable to me as I have taught, coached and directed many aspiring actors, directors, producers and "techies". Metzler's candor regarding the processes involved with every aspect of the theatre gives a clear picture of what our students may expect, should they decide to pursue such a career. School administrators (and subsequently the theatre arts programs in their schools) will benefit by gaining a clear understanding of the academic work demanded by such programs. Parents and families will gain an understanding of the field, with which they can support their students' theatrical endeavors. Every performing arts teacher/director should read this book for wonderful teaching examples and real life experiences which they can share with their students.

Bo Metzler actually accomplishes what seems to be an impossible task: writing a book that is fun and informative for people at every stage of their theatrical careers, from the absolute beginner to the Broadway veteran (or even for theatre people to share with our families to help them understand what our world is all about). "What We Do" should certainly be required reading in every "Introduction to the Theatre" class to inform students about all the different types of jobs available to them in the theatre and how all those various jobs work together. But the book is by no means just for students: I've performed in principal roles on Broadway for three and a half years and yet there were many things I understood much better (or for the first time!) after reading Mr. Metzler's very entertaining book.

As a long time Broadway Production Prop Supervisor and theater professional, I, too, have also been at a loss to explain to people not in the theater business exactly what I do and how various aspects of the theater work. Bo Metzler's book WHAT WE DO gives clear and understandable explanations of what actually goes into putting on a Broadway show. Anyone who is interested in theater should read this book -audience members to gain a further enjoyment of the theater experience, anyone thinking of making the theater a career to see how it really works and people already in "the Business" for insight and anecdotes about what we do.
