"Kiss and Tell brings the delights of Restoration acting within American range. This is a crucial addition to theatre training and a damn good time, to boot" ~ Jon Jory, Producing Director, Actprs Theatre of Louisville

"A treasure trove for any actor! I've used monologues and scenes from Kiss and Tell in classwork and in performance with students. They are extraordinarily useful style tools. The verbal wit and demands of the text provide a delightful challenge to the actor which is balanced by the physical requirements of restoration comic style" ~ Aimee K. Michel, Associate Artistic Director, Director's Project, Drama League

"These monologues contain all the essential themes from the Restoration canon. This material is great fun to do. The demands of period style work are not a nuisance, but rather a way of freeing the actor from the constraints of American realism" ~ Scott Zigler, Past Executive Director, Practical Aesthetics Workshop, and Director, Apprentice/Intern Company, Actors theatre of Louisville
