Overview
Edited by Steven H. Gale. A collection of forty selections from some of the most important contemporary plays and playwrights of the 1990's.

Reviews - What do customers think about Outstanding Stage Monologs and Scenes from the '90s: Professional Auditions for Student Actors?

Nothing special.  Sep 12, 2003
First of all, I can't see how this book can come off saying it's for students. A big hunk of the monologues are NOT age appropriate. They're for older women, looking back on their lives. It is important to know your range - and I'm sorry, but college students just aren't in their 60s for the most part! We don't have the life experience to give honesty to these roles. Also, a huge chunk of the monologues for women are story telling, another thing you should try to avoid in monologues.

I do NOT recommend this book to any college women who are looking for something to use at auditions.

 
Awesome  Feb 14, 2003
This book has everything you need to perform. Monologs (good ones, which are very hard to come by), duets, group scenes, EVERYTHING! All of them are either award winning plays or excerpts from them. Each different performance has an intro to it that gives information like: what the stage sould look like, what awards the play one, what other plays the playwright wrote and where the play was performed. The only problem is that the monologs are too short for the contests I enter. Does anyone know of any books that have 5 to 7 minute monologs? Thanks!
