Three Tips to Performing The Perfect Monologue From NYC’s Best Acting Coach, Arthur Reel, Bronx, New York

For over 35 years, Arthur Reel Studio has provided acting lessons to help New York City’s actors perfect their monologue skills. Whether it’s for an audition or a leading role, a monologue speaks volumes about your acting ability. But in order to perform a monologue well, you must connect with the character whom you are portraying.

Perfect monologue presentation is as easy as following the three “W’s”:

  • What. What words are you saying? Rehearsing and repeating the words is the first step to locking down any monologue. You cannot begin to connect with your character if you don’t even know what they’re saying. Practice the script in your own voice until you know it by heart. Then you will be able to move on.
  • Who. You must not only understand your character, but whom they’re talking to as well. Read the monologue and try to imagine your character speaking to their target audience. Imagine Hamlet mourning Yorick’s death to Horatio. You must convey Hamlet’s grief in your voice, but also direct that grief to your audience as if they are Horatio.
  • Why. After you have practiced the words and the character, you must immerse yourself in the world of the monologue. Understand why you are presenting your monologue and become the embodiment of that emotion. If your character is grieving, think back to a time in your own life where you grieved. If you are supposed to be happy, remember the happiest moment of your life. With this emotion fresh in your mind, you will deliver a powerful monologue!
