    F ing nuts Here we are standing on the corner of 'Walk Don't Walk' You look away from me tryin' not to catch my eye but you didn't turn fast enough did you?

    This was such a fun read I found myself hearing Lily Tomlin and all her voices in my head which had me bursting into laughter out in public That's a five star experience if ever there was one Here's a part that really got meYou don't know what it's likeHyperactive twinsWhen they turned three my doctor prescribed Ritalin I wouldn't dream of giving drugs to my childrenbut it does help when I take it myselfSometimes it gets so bad I brew up someSleepytime herb tea pour it over ice serve it in Spidermanglasses andtell them it's a new flavorKool AidThe running gags especially Soup also caught me in surprise moments of laughter

    I read this because when you hear so many women pulling monologues from it the same one really you feel the need to read the actual play I really wish I could have seen this show performed by Lily Tomlin I think her as the actress would be a lot of what makes it but I did like it Considering when it was written and when it was on Broadway it is no wonder it was the smash it was I will say this however actresses who pull that same Trudy monologue for auditions need to pick different monologues Don't get me wrong the one you consistently choose is a nice one but there are definitely meaty and gritty monologues later in the show to provide a better showcase for your acting chops Just saying

    Funny funny hilarious and absolutely spot on Thanks for the recommendation Pam I adore this book

    Jane Wagner had to have had Lily Tomlin in mind when she wrote Signs because so many facets of Tomlin's personality are reflected in this brilliant play The characters are loosely interwoven diverse in nature and absolutely unforgettable I really came to love this play when my daughter used different monologues from it as audition pieces and I got to hear the language and hear the characters develop over and over Kudos to Wagner she did a splendid job

    Amazing phenomenal A fuggin' plus My favorite book since middle school when I randomly picked it up off the shelf of the school library read it twice back to back and then decided never to return it You can read my full review right here

    Brilliant characters and monologues even when Tomlinson isn't bringing them to life

    For reviews check out my blog Craft CycleGoing into this I had no idea what to expect This book was crazy weird and everything I needed Such a fantastic read that sends you on a roller coaster of emotions and experiences Silly funny heartbreaking eyeopening relatable anger inducing frustrating tear jerking humorous This book encompasses a range of human life and it is amazing The cast of characters is perfectly collaborated acting as foils and compliments to each other in their strange interconnected way linking humans and their experiences together in a surprisingly simply yet complicated way Honestly there is just so much going on in this work and I am amazed by it The book also includes some pretty great photos of Tomlin during her performances as well as some strange collage esue photo art that is rather splendid Great read I am now on the hunt for a copy of the show because I can hardly fathom how amazing it is to see Tomlin enact all of the complexities and idiosyncrasies of these fantastic characters I'm rather disappointed that my library doesn't have a copy but I will persevere I think it's worth it

    Jane Wagner's play was almost too fractured especially in the first half It acts as a sort of moving portrait of the lives of various characters in 1980's America The same occurs in the second half but there is a greater focus placed on a smaller cast of characters It becomes difficult to really concentrate on any of them for too long because they're going to be swept away in a few pages until the last 30 40 pages of the play There is a lot of wit and truth in what Wagner has to say and in the characters she portrays but it all would have fallen flat if it weren't for the saving grace that was the play's conclusion Everything comes together perfectly in a way that is both uniue and powerful


  10. Bri Wilson Bri Wilson says:

    I randomly picked this up at a used book store because it looked weird and I am a sucker for long titles This has turned out a be a blessing of impulse buying because I loved this play It is comprised mostly of monologues because it was written as a one woman show Each monologue gives us a new character simply talking about their experience on life as a business woman mother teen rebel feminist and crazy bag lady In the end this play left me with an appreciation of life and what makes it so beautiful almost ironically as none of the characters are truly content with their lives they are simply living them Wagner's play is funny witty and heartfelt and I am going to run to the store to try and find the DVD of Lily Tomlin's performance in the film version
