Book Description

The second edition of this popular guide shows beginning and experienced actors how to use their acting skills to write successful monologues, performance art pieces, and one-person plays. An award-winning actor and monologue coach breaks down the writing process into simple, easy-to-follow steps, providing tips for brainstorming, important questions to ask along the way, and words of wisdom from some of today's most admired actors and scriptwriters. The features of this book are: new interviews with Broadway and off-Broadway solo performers, new Internet resources for promoting one-person shows; all the tools for performers to write, rehearse, produce, and promote their own performances - the most comprehensive resource for performers on the market; helps actors both to create their own audition material and expand it into a one-person show; empowers actors to become writers and directors; eliminates need to wait for a director's call. Examines material from famous monologists; and demonstrates fundamentals of good monologues. It also features interviews with some of the best-known current and recent monologists: Danny Hoch, Jo Bonney, and the late Spalding Gray and Quentin Crisp. It is intended for working and aspiring actors; students and teachers; and writers interested in monologues. Good timing: monologists have had a resurgence; one-person shows such as Laugh Whore, Bridge & Tunnel, Squeezebox, Elaine Stritch, Billy Crystal, John Leguizamo have drawn huge audiences.
