Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Monologues From Musicals
More Than You Will Ever Need!

Finding good monologues from musicals on the internet isn't the easiest thing to do. In fact, what I have found is that while finding other types of monologues for musical auditions on the internet is much easier, the absolute best theatre songs are usually found in wonderful books that have been written by experienced theatre performers. Below you will find some of the best that there are to be had.

You will also want to decide whether or not you want to download something from the internet or whether you would rather actually have a hard copy book at home that you can refer to anytime you want. It's a personal choice. Amazon for example has shipping promotions for a certain quantity of books in an order, so if you buy more than one book, you could get a discount on shipping. Personally, I like to have a book that I can pick up at home when I want and leaf through. If you find the right book for monologues from musicals, you might find several monologues that you like and can just bookmark the pages. I prefer this rather than opening up my ipad, going to the site or even to my iBooks to read. I would just prefer picking up my book at home. Again. It's a personal thing that you will decide for yourself.

A couple more things with regard to your monologues from musicals.

On the monologues section of this website (see the menu here to the left), you will find information on typical mistakes to avoid when performing monologues, on how to memorize them and also how to choose the best monologe for you based on your type.

Lastly, before you dive into the monologues here below, in the section of this website entitled expert advice (see the menu here to the left) you will find an interview I did with a musical theatre performer named Anastasia Bain. Check it out.

Have fun in your search.
