Reviewed by Daniel D Staats for Readers' Favorite

Mike Kimmel puts his years of experience into Monologues for Adults. This book is written with new and upcoming performers in mind to help them prepare for their auditions. He decided to write new and uplifting monologues to help young stars be born, and all of these monologues are family-friendly. This book is much more than just monologues, however: it is also full of advice from Mike based on his years of experience and observations. Actors/actresses must be able to shine as an individual during their monologue and, at the same time, show that they would make great team players. These monologues are fresh and unique: a perfect showcase for performers to audition for different directors. Any entertainer should find it easy to learn and present these monologues on stage.

Mike Kimmel has been around the block more than once. In those times, he has learned much about auditioning. He has a genuine desire to help others who are coming behind him. In Monologues for Adults, Mike presents monologues that are upbeat and clean. They exude hope. He has written them so that any budding actor will have no problem adapting them for an audition. The monologues come in a variety of topics, with each one being easy to memorize. Mike knows when to add seriousness as well as when to add levity. He understands how to reach his audience. His years of experience shine through in his monologues. His goal to help is clearly seen in his writing and permission is granted to adapt each monologue as the actor/actress sees fit.
