This is the first anthology of monologues and scenes from award-winning playwright Charles Busch

He's been called "a comic playwright of the first order," and this collection puts the spotlight on the hilarious monologues and two-character scenes from his many plays that have kept audiences in stitches for more than three decades

It's an invaluable resource for actors seeking unique audition or competition material but it can also be appreciated by readers simply enjoying the work of a brilliant comic imagination

Included are monologues and scenes from his first outrageous off-Broadway successes, Vampire Lesbians of Sodom and Psycho Beach Party, to his Broadway hit, The Tale of the Allergist's Wife

This special collection is an overview of a long and inspiring career featuring never-before-published highlights of his earliest work as a solo performer in the early 1980s, as well as his most recent critically acclaimed plays such as The Divine Sister

Busch has also written an insightful and entertaining foreword explaining his fascination and love for the theatrical convention of the monologue and the actors who have inspired them

And he's annotated the Collection with personal anecdotes and a guide to the frequent movie and theatrical references that contribute to the great enjoyment of this master comic dramatist
