About Your Type
Before you start searching for monologues, you will most definitely want to know what your type is and what you want to communicate with your monologue. Go to the Actor Q & A button on the menu here to the left and look up the question about type on the blog. It will help you figure out what your type is. The reason that is important is so that you will communicate something with your monologue that is in line with and that helps you to emphasize precisely how you want to be perceived! That one thing alone can have a profound effect on the success or failure of your acting career.
