With exclusive access to her unpublished memoirs, letters, and notes, Lambert gives readers a brilliant portrait of this extraordinary woman. 120 photos.
Rezension: Actress Alla Nazimova rode unto Broadway from the East, bearing lightning bolts. It was 1905, and her experience in the legendary Moscow Art Theatre under Stanislavsky made her a goddess in the eyes of the first generation of fully professional American actors. Lambert's remarkable feat of theatrical history recaptures the puissant mystique of Nazimova (true believers knew her only by that name, and rolled it off their tongues like an incantation). She introduced many of the primary Ibsen and Chekhov roles to America, introducing in the process a new standard of realistic performance that swept away the wildly melodramatic style of the late 19th century. Nazimova's choice of roles and standards of performance have become so encoded in the DNA of new actresses that they all strive to be Nazimova--whether they even know what a Nazimova was. Thanks to Lambert, they can again. The book includes some of Nazimova's poetry.
