What People Are Saying

Stephen Peithman
In the confines of a scene or monologue, the actor, director, or teacher can-indeed, must-zero in on character and situation. This month, we take note of recently released collections of monologues and scenes designed to help actors enhance their audition and performance skills.

Smith and Kraus is one of the most active publishers in this arena, and among its latest offerings are The Best Women's Stage Monologues of 2004 [ISBN 1-57525-402-6, $11.95] and The Best Men's Stage Monologues of 2004 [ISBN 1-5755-403-4, $11.95]. Playwrights represented include Naomi Wallace, David Rabe, Theresa Rebeck, Jonathan Marc Sherman, John Guare, Eve Ensler, Don Nigro, Mort Crowley and Neena Beber.
