I'm a senior in high school and I am about 80% done with my 2 contrasting college audition monologues. One of the monologue that my director chose for me back in the summer was the Queen Mab speech. I'm having secodn thoughts about it because I hear it is widely overdone.
Will performing this monologue, even if done well, hurt my chances of acceptance?
Is it worth it to look for another classical monologue?
PS: I'm auditioning for Purchase, Mason Gross, Marymount Manhattan, Ithaca, and Emerson.
