Monologues & Horoscopes, Oh My!

So, for any of you who know me personally, I've been bemoaning my current monologues for some time now.  I've just picked up three plays at Drama Book Shop and I am curious as to what you think of my choices for new material. Do they fit me? Do you think they will work? My selections are:

  • "reasons to be pretty" by Neil LaBute - Steph
  • "100 Saints You Should Know" by Kate Fodor - Theresa
  • "Sense & Sensibility" by Jane Austin, Adaptation by Ashley J. Barnard - Elinor
Let me know what you think.

In other news, I just sat down and checked out my horoscope for the month of April.  Good things are coming, so it says.

Taking seriously your astrological attributes can be somewhat of a joke or a taboo in the world today. That being said, many people check them daily "for fun." Amusingly enough, in this business, almost immediately after you are introduced to someone, they ask your astrological sign.  So I'm wondering, do you find that the things mentioned in your horoscope actually happen?  The jury is still out for me, with my being more skeptical than a believer, but there are some things I have found to be true.  For example, I am constantly surprised by how often people get moody or temperamental around a full moon.  But on all other aspects, I have yet to have any prediction make me a believer.

So, what are your thoughts?
