Editorial Reviews

Stage Directions - Off The Shelf
Also gender-specific are The Best Men's Stage Monologues of 2007, and The Best Women's Stage Monologues of 2007, both edited by Lawrence Harbison. Some of the playwrights represented are familiar (Theresa Rebeck, A.R. Gurney, Terrence McNally), but much of the material is from new and emerging authors - once again giving the performer access to well crafted, but not overexposed works.
