SHOWTIME: Comedic Acting Scenes for Two Actors was written specifically to close a much need vacuum for scene-study materials for actors, directors, coaches and teachers so that they can continously work on their craft. This book is also an excellent book for staging scene productions. In addition to the sixteen hilarious scenes for two actors, there is a chapter on stage terminology, film terminology, and a chapter on commonly used vernacular. For actors who are constantly looking for new and original material to work on during down time or coaches and teachers looking for new materials ... this book will certainly fit the bill. It is the ONLY BOOK of its kind on the market!
