Summary
  • "A founder of the Atlantic Theater Company, one of off-Broadway's most prestigious producing organizations, Karen Kohlhaas directed their revivals of Harold Pinter's The Hothouse and David Marnet's The Water Engine. Ms. Kohlhaas also teaches at the Atlantic Theater Company Acting School, and this book derives from the classes she has conducted there over the past several years." "Her aim throughout is to help the aspiring actor meet the challenges of performing audition monologues for theaters, agents, casting directors, and training programs. She provides pointers on choosing audition monologues, and goes on to give actors a step-by-step approach, illustrated by line drawings and photographs, that is applicable to any monologue they might choose."
  • "All the elements of preparing a monologue audition - script analysis, staging, voice, timing, gesture, movement and self-presentation skills - are thoroughly explored here. The goal of the book, as Ms. Kohlhaas states in her Introduction, is not only to help you prepare for auditions, but to make working on monologues a regular and enjoyable part of your acting life. As you follow the author along the path she charts, you are not only learning to rehearse monologues effectively, you are learning to turn auditions into exciting ways to grow and challenge yourself as an actor."--Jacket
