Episode 16 – Don’t Ever Call It a Monologue!

TO ACCESS THE ENTIRE FREE TEACHING LIBRARY

Sanford Meisner had a few pet peeves when it came to the craft of acting and one of them was when actors used the term “monologue.” It always generated a big reaction from him because it’s never a monologue – it’s always an active incident between two people. This work from Studio and Faculty Member, Dave Usner, beautifully demonstrates that point. When he did this work, there was “no one there.” ┬áIt was a “monologue,” and yet his job was to bring this situation to life as if he were actually talking to someone.
My apologies in advance for the strong language but I celebrate his committed work and what he’s trying to express and say! Way to go, Dave!
