The first-of-its-kind book, LGBTQ Comedic Monologues That Are Actually Funny, is out now from Applause Theatre & Cinema Books, part of the Hal Leonard Performing Arts Publishing Group. For many years, actors have bought anthologies of monologues to use for auditions, but LGBTQ Comedic Monologues That Are Actually Funny is the first and only book specifically tailored for actors auditioning for LGBTQ roles. 

Edited by Emmy- and Grammy-award winner Alisha Gaddis (Lishy Lou and Lucky Too), this hysterical, cutting-edge monologue book features works by LGBT writers and comics, and their allies, who have written and/or performed for Comedy Central, Backstage magazine, NBC, the Huffington Post, the Onion, Second City, E!, and many more. LGBTQ Comedic Monologues That Are Actually Funny (224 pages, $14.99) is the sixth book of monologues Gaddis has edited in the Applause Acting Series of Monologues That Are Actually Funny.

I am incredibly grateful to have worked for three of the top 11 directors on this list of The 50 Best Commercial Directors in the World — and I’ve worked for one of them twice. Wow. Humbled. #luckyduck

I’m an official part of the 365 Women a Year: A Playwriting Project! I’m honored to be a part of this worthy, interesting and fabulous project — and to have written about Princess Iwa, a remarkable Maori singer. Check out my listing here.

…more about 365 Women a Year:
“This international playwriting project involves over 200 playwrights who have signed on to write one or more one-acts about extraordinary women in both past and present history. The project’s ambitious yet focused goal is to write women back into the social consciousness as well as empower and promote female playwrights around the country.”
