Karen Kohlhaas is one of those people in the New York theater world that everyone seems to know. And why not? She's a founding member of the world-renowned Atlantic Theater Company, an esteemed teacher at the Atlantic Acting Schooland of her own monologue and directing workshops, a well-respected stage director, and author of The Monologue Audition: A Practical Guide for Actors. Her latest book, How to Choose a Monologue For Any Audition, is an indispensable guide for the working actor. Outside of being an industry role model, I happen to know that Karen is also one of the most genuine people you will ever meet, both in and out of this business, and it's my absolute pleasure to have her share her experiences with all of you.
