About the Book:

Now in its 14th printing, The Actor's Audition by David Black shows you how to see your performance through the eyes of prospective employers, how to sell yourself even before you step into character, and how to interpret roles without outside direction.

The audition is the first — and most essential — test of any actor's craft, one that is typically performed for a very tough audience, under conditions that are always less than perfect. The Actor's Audition is a practical, hands-on guide by veteran producer David Black, which covers every aspect of the auditioning process: the monologue, the cold reading, the musical audition, and the interview.
