PRLog - Feb. 12, 2013 - QUEENS, N.Y. -- For an acting book that has garnered very little press and publicity, "Showtime" is rapidly becoming an entertainment industry favorite. It is the third of four books by New York author and playwright Gregory L Hudson and the follow up book to his very popular acting book, "Monologues: Dramatic Monologues For Actors".

"I was so busy writing and publishing my books that I didn't have time to promote them. As a matter of fact, I've never had a book signing of any kind for 'Showtime'.

One of the main reasons people are beginning to notice this book is because of its versatility. In addition to the incredible acting scenes for two actors, "Showtime" has chapters on "stage terminology", "film terminology", and a chapter on "commonly used vernacular".

"Suddenly ... I'm getting calls from actors from Los Angeles and New York about Showtime. I've always recieved calls from actors about Monologues because of the 32 original monologues. But ShowTime has never officially been reviewed, promoted, or publicized and to see the interest in it confirms my motivation for writing it".

ShowTime is all over Amazon. It comes in three formats: Paperback, hardcover, and ebook. While some retailers are selling it for as much as $80.00, Amazon Kindle has it for only $8.99. For the traditional book lovers, the paperback can be purchased for $15.00 and the hardcover for as little as $18.00.

For educators, this book is so different from ordinary acting books. A teacher, director, acting coach or professor could use this book to teach scene study, acting, and character develepment. Not only are there excellent scenes, but there are also monologues within the scenes. As a bonus, a professor could also teach stage and film terminology without having students bear the burden of buying additional books given the high cost of tutition and books today.

Barnes and Noble also carry  all versions of ShowTime and offers it of only $8.99 on the Nook.

"To see my books listed on Barnes and Nobles and Amazon sometimes is surreal. Like any author ... you hope to see your book on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Barnes and Nobles is the largest brick and mortar book store and Amazon is the largest online book store".

For anyone in the performing arts, this book, as well as "Monologues: Dramatic Monologues For Actors" is a must.

"Actors are beginning to request permission to use monologues and scenes from both books for their audition reels. Also ShowTime, as well as Monologues, fills a much needed void for black actors and actors of other races. Actors of color continue to struggle to find good scenes or monologues for auditions and both of these books fits the bill".

Hudson is the founder/producer and artistic director of Poor Penny Productions, Inc. He has authored four books: Monologues, ShowTime, "48 Poems: Reflections Of A Poet", and "Why I Sued Eddie Murphy". He teaches theatre within the New York City Public School System and is currently involved in a project to bring film, theatre, and television to Jamaica Queens, New York.

Readers can preview selected scenes and monologues on Hudson's website.
