MONOLOGUES from UGAs

(1/1)

Shane Regan!:
As an actor, I'm always curious as to what other people choose for their monologues.  It's a good way to find a read new plays i may have never known about otherwise.  So when we had a spare volunteer on one a day of the TPS generals, I knew what needed to be done.  I made the poor girl sit and watch the whole day and write down every monologue/song people do.  I am such a bastard, I know.  I paid the price, though - it was a pain in the butt to google clarifications for play titles or misheard authors, etc.  Hopefully this will at least be interesting to someone!

A NOTE TO ACTORS: My volunteer was surprised at how often she could not understand what an actor was saying when they introduced their pieces.  So if you're going to introduce your monologue and song, make sure to speak as clearly as possible!

Jane May:
Hey Shane,

Thanks again for all your work at the UGAs! and thanks for compiling this list. One "unknown" that I know for sure is that "Miss Alliance" is Misalliance by George Bernard Shaw. Although I'm sure Miss Alliance is a very nice gal  ;)

you rock!
Jane

Shane Regan!:
