StageAgent is great for finding monologues for auditions. It's so helpful because StageAgent not only provides the monologue, but also the associated character description and show summary providing a wonderful context for the piece.
StageAgent is my go-to resource to study character breakdowns. As an actress, I love having one reliable source for show and character information, monologues and audition songs. StageAgent helps me come better prepared to auditions and feel that much closer to booking the role.
Now you don't have to rely on guesswork to figure out which roles are right for you, or what audition song will help you land a part. It's like an encyclopedia for theater and musicals, but way more clear and easy to search. I highly recommend StageAgent.
StageAgent easily summarized each character's role so that I knew what I was getting myself into before walking into the audition room.
