Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9-12-- Unlike many collections for young actors, this book includes only material from published works and is thereby subject to roy alties. Amateur and professional actors are warned on the verso of the title page to secure written permission from agents before per forming or in any way reproducing any of the monologues. However, aspiring actors seeking material from recognized stage plays will ap preciate the time saved on finding cuttings themselves. This collection is divided into con temporary, classic, and nondramatic literary selections, all assorted by gender and ranging from 418 B.C. to the present. Although a one- or two-sentence overview of the piece and a short character description precede each brief entry, the editors encourage YAs to ``study these monologues in the context of the total work.'' Libraries serving young actors may want to include this book in their collections, but all should be aware of the performance limitations of these selections.-- Dona Weis man, Northeast Texas Library System, Gar land
