Description
This sequel to the popular The Theatre Audition Book features more than 130 monologues form classical, Shakespeare, period, modern, and contemporary plays and a new chapter on musical theatre and the medium, including commercial and film auditions. The monologues – some taken from non-dramatic sources like novels and poems – are organized by historical times and provide an overview of acting style and audition expectations for playing each time period. The collection features well-known playwrights – Ntozake Shange, Athol Fugard, Christopher Durang, John Patrick Shanley, Edward Albee, August Wilson, Beth Henley, Terrence McNally, and Paula Vogel – and a number of exciting new writers who have contributed original monologues written especially for classroom study and performance. There are also a number of original duologues and musical monologues from standard classics – The Man of La Mancha, Big River, and You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
