Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
YA-- A welcome addition to the field because it includes scenes from scripts produced after 1975, as well as selections from classical plays such as The Beggar's Opera, The Country Wife, She Stoops to Conqueror, and The Importance of Being Earnest . The selections are for characters aged 18 to 30; several have been written for African-American and Hispanic actors. The book is organized in sections: ``Monologues for Women,'' ``Monologues for Men,'' ``Dialogues for One Man and One Woman,'' ``Dialogues for Two Men,'' and ``Dialogues for Two Women.'' The introduction includes a helpful essay that discusses how an aspiring actor can build a repertoire.-- Roger Green, Jefferson Sci - Tech, Alexandria, VA
