Reviews - What do customers think about The Scenebook for Actors: Great Monologs And Dialogs From Contemporary And Classical Theatre?

A Little Bit of Everything!  Mar 28, 2000
I purchased this book as a resource for my high school duo and solo acting competitions. I am very impressed by the variety of scenes in this book. There are wonderful duo scenes for one man and one woman, (Be sure to read David Rimmer's "Album"), and also great scenes for two women (My partner and I recieved 3rd place in the duo competition for our interpretation from Beth Henley's "The Miss Firecracker Contest") Authors range from Oscar Wilde to August Wilson, John Gay to David Mamet... This book is an excellent resource. My only complaint is in the book's organization. Monologues and scenes are separated, but comedies and tragedies are mixed up. This adds an extra step in the choosing process, but all in all it's worth it!
