Reviews - What do customers think about Scenes & Monologs from the Best New Plays?

Great for teachers, not so much for serious actors  Oct 3, 2008
I use these books for my classes for beginning acting students to find performance and mock audition pieces. This is also a good resource to find out which full length plays may be worth reading. These are much better than those "just written as a free-standing piece" books because they are pulled from actual plays.

I would warn that serious actors shy away from these when looking for audition pieces because you run the risk of :showing up to the party in the same dress".
