Overview

This anticipated volume in Smith and Kraus's highly-praised 60 Seconds to Shine Series, 221 One-Minute Monologues from Classic Plays, is the next book auditioning actors must have, created specifically for those who have only one minute to showcase their talent and need a short classic monologue for their repetoire.

The editors have assembled a unique collection for men and women including monologues from a diverse selection of classic plays by authors such as:

oAeschylus
• Chekhov
• Euripides
• Filipo
• Goethe
• Goldoni
• Havel
• Kleist
• Marivaux
• Molière
• Pirandello
• Rostand
• Santander
• Schnitzler
• Scribe
• Shakespeare
• Sophokles
• Wedekind

Each monologue embodies a well-defined character and includes strong emotional content. These monologues are not from dusty old translations from the 1950s - all have been recently translated and use language that speaks to modern audiences. The monologues are organized by gender and indexed by tone and author to help the actor identify those most suited to the actor's needs. Each monologue is introduced with character and scene information to help the actor understand the context of the selection.
