Original Character Monologues for ActorsBook - 1993
From Library Journal A winning stage audition depends heavily on the material used, as well as the talent of the actor. These original character monologs for men and women cover a variety of types, ages, and moods and range from serious to comic. The characters include husbands and wives, wheeler-dealers, gay people, the unemployed, someone with AIDS, and the parent of someone with AIDS. Alterman is the author of Street Talk: Character Monologues for Actors (Smith & Kraus, 1991) and other monolog and dialog plays. Actors looking for challenging, contemporary audition material should find a gold mine here. Recommended for theater arts collections. - Howard E. Miller, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mechnical Coll.
