Fun Fact:

In 2016, after more than 60 years, Konstantin Stanislavsky's book, An Actor Prepares was re-published in Russia. On the back cover are two quotes; one from Stanislavsky (1863-1938) and the other, from Ivana Chubbuck.

Actor, director and co-founder of the Moscow Art Theatre, Stanislavsky is known as the developer of drama's modern technique of 'natural performance'. He regarded the theatre as 'an art of social significance' and believed that the artform had the power to influence the masses.
