What makes the book unique is that it offers both wonderful, contemporary scenes, as well as in-depth comments from the author, providing insight to the characters and advice from a professional casting director on performing the scenes. The additional information that accompanies each scene offers actors a better understanding of the role, thereby enhancing the choices they use in their performance.
