Acting Books I Just Purchased

So I am an avid to read!! I think books are great companions to acting classes so here is a list of books that I just purchased:

The Power of the Actor By: Ivana Chubbuck

The Art of Auditioning: Techniques for Television By: Rob Decina

On Method Acting By: Edward Dwight Easty

An Actor's Business by Andrew Reilly

The Monologue Audition: A Practical Guide for Actors By: Karen Kohlhaas

The 7 Steps to Stardom: How to Become a Working Actor By: Christina Ferra-Gilmore, Wink Martindale

Voices of Color 50 Scenes & Monologues (Paperback) (Applause Acting Series)
By: King

The National Black Drama Anthology: Eleven Plays from America's Leading African-American Theaters By: Hal Leonard Corp., Jr., Woodie King

How to Choose A Monologue for Any Audition
By Karen Kohlhaas

If I can't take a casting director/teacher's class then the next best thing is their book!!

Stay tuned...


  1. I didn't find any material that suited me in the Anthology of Plays or the Scene/Monologue book. I like Karen's book How to choose a monologe. I'm reading Ivanna's book now and its very helpful. I haven't started the rest of the books yet but will give my opinion when its completed. Thanks
