Professional actors, who have been in the business for any number of years, have discovered the importance of having an array of strong one minute long monologues within their acting arsenal. Having a variety of impacting monologues, honed and ready to roll, will give you the assurance that no matter what the nature of the role you're shooting for, you also have a matching audition piece. These monologues have been test-driven by acting coaches in several large cities and have elicited multi-layered emotions from the actors who have used them and the agents and directors who have experienced them. So, take your time, read them all, find the right ones and get to work. Wrap yourselves around them, take them to heart, learn them inside and out, feel them in your bones, sense them with all your being and go land those roles!
