The Best Men's Stage Monologues of 1991by Jocelyn A. Beard, David Frank
Pub. Date: 01/28/1992
Publisher: Smith & Kraus, Inc.
The plays of 1991 introduced us to men's characters of substance. Alvin, of Wil Calhoun's The Balcony Scene is an agoraphobic writer terrified to leave the safe confines of his apartment. In Richard Lay's Sparky's Last Dance, we meet Hurricane, a man on death row evaluating his life on the eve of his execution. And finally, in David Hirson's brilliant La Bete, we are delighted by the word-play of Elomire, a 17th century actor/playwright who is threatened by the encroachment of mediocrity into his art.
