It's In This Book!  Jun 27, 2005
After reading through dozens of monologue books I found Glenn Alterman's Two Minute Monologs. Believe me, it has more GREAT monologues than any other book out there! I found 11 monologues that I've started using with great results. This guy is a genuis. He really knows how to write material for actors. Do yourself a favor, get this book. I usually don't go this crazy over a book, but this one is really special.
Not Bad  Aug 16, 2001
This book really helped me with all of my auditions.There is a wide variety of skits to choose from.Whether you want the audience to laugh or be moved, this book has the scenes to make that happen.
I'd given up on finding ORIGINAL, EXCITING, audition monologues. Glenn Alterman's new book unquestionably has the BEST audition monologues. I'm a big fan of his work. I think all actors should get this book!
