SPECIAL PROMOTION SUPER CUSTOMIZED MONOLOGUE RECOMMENDATIONS!

Hello my fantastic followers! 

  I wanted to fill ya’ll in on a really exciting project that currently needs your help to be funded. 

I know I know. Another stupid Indiegogo campaign. 

Hopefully you can give me the next few minutes to talk to you about why this is an important artistic endeavor to fund. 

I love music of any and all kinds. So when my friend, the incredible, Francesca Blanchard started an indiegogo campaign to fund her first full length album I knew I had to donate. Francesca reminds me of a mix of Laura Marling, Joni Mitchell, and God. And she is about to EXPLODE on the music scene. Have a look at her website and music here!

(I’ll also post some music after this) (Annd continue to post monologues, I haven’t forgotten that) 

HERE IS THE SUPER AWESOME PROMOTION I CAN OFFER YOU

I have some monologues that I have refrained from putting on the blog, simply because I consider them my favorite pieces and somehow I think if I put them out there they’ll lose magic. I also have a ton of other monologues I need to type up and queue. I get, on an average day, around 100 requests for monologue recommendations, 

So here’s my deal. If you research Francesca and find that you really dig her music and want to donate, than send me an inbox saying you donated and the name that you said you donated under. I’ll confirm that you donated with Francesca and we’ll set up a time when we can talk on the phone/ chat/ inbox whatever so you can explain to me exactly what you want in a monologue. And if you don’t know what you want I can get to know you and then help you figure out monologues perfect for your type, what you’re going out for, and that you love. I will not stop until we find something you love. 

I’ll forward you some of the applicable reserve monologues as well as the digital version of the play that one of your chosen monologues is from. 

All I ask in return, is that you donate to Francesca’s campaign. You can donate any amount but please, if you also want to be eligible for monologue help donate at least $10. 

Here is the indigogo link. Today I’ll post purely Francesca Blanchard music (because I’m annoying) and then tomorrow I promise to resume monologues.

As a price comparison, when I was searching for monologues to audition at colleges with people were charging upwards of $50. None of your money will go to me, it will go to something much more beautiful and worthy! 

All my love friends.

Anonymous said: There is a fairly new Scottish play that my friend is in called Wendy Hoose which has a disabled female main character. See if there is anything from that available anywhere?

Anonymous said: Do you have any monologues for females with disabilities other than Tomorrow’s Wish (by Wade Bradford)? Thank you!

Shooting this out to the blogosphere….I know there’s a few good ones from Tribes by Nina Raine but other than that….anyone?

‘It is, it’s one of the greatest parts you’ll ever play as an actress. Except it’s the reverse of Hamlet because he spends three hours worrying and does nothing, whereas Medea takes an hour and 15, massacres the whole fucking stage and walks off. But it’s great because she uses every shred of femininity that she has to do it, and she also has the complexity of guilt.’ Helen McCrory, answering the question “Is Medea a bit like a female Hamlet?” (via notabuddhist)
