Description


Based on the popularity of his first book of audition monologues (See above.), Ratliff has compiled another outstanding collection of monologues taken from contemporary, modern, period, Shakespearean, and classical plays. The monologues (and duologues) are conveniently grouped in historical periods and include a brief summary of the historical period, basic approaches to analysis and interpretation of scripts, and performance styles. One chapter, for instance, focuses on playing the "classical" Greek style, another on Shakespeare, the next on playing selected theatre period styles, and still another on playing contemporary monologues. These chapters also explore the skills necessary to visualize the dramatic and theatrical elements in an audition monologue. In addition, there are a number of vocal and physical exercises included to promote ease of movement and distinctive vocal variety.
