Reviews - What do customers think about Encore!: More Winning Monologs for Young Actors : 63 More Honest-To-Life Monologs for Teenage Boys and Girls?
Not worth it. Jan 17, 2000
This book's monologues are mostly nicely-written but pointless. They are easy to perform, but they give the actor no opportunity to actually do anything. Most of these monologues, I would never use for an audition. I suppose the book deserves some credit for a few very good monologues, but overall, it was a disappointment.
Great Book for student actors Dec 7, 1999
I bought a couple of monolog books from this site.com, and this one was certainly the best. It provided me a perfect selection of comedy and drama, and the pieces were not too long or to short. Though the book says for young actors, I recomend this to anyone in high school as well.
It was pleasant. Sep 26, 1999
This book was helpful in selecting a powerful monologue. Most of the monologues in here are set for teenagers and comedic. However, there are some clever serious monologues for a young actor also.
