    When I was there about an hour ago there were still plenty of appointments from 10:50 on, so I imagine people are getting in. Producing AD Lisa McNulty and intern Mary DeCarlo ITR.

    Anything going on over at Avenue Q? Or can I sleep in?

    DeltaSigma[tos]

    I'm headed over to get there by 8!

    5678AND 12/17/2014  7:03am

    any update?

    aceofcakes 12/17/2014  7:53am

    There are about 20 people on line and an unofficial non-eq list of about 16 I think.

    sarahsoda4 12/17/2014  7:56am

    17 on unofficial list.

    yogajunkie 12/17/2014  7:58am

    Can't get there until later. How're the lists looking?

    PrettyPelican 12/17/2014  8:42am

    I signed up at 8:45 and am 64 on the unofficial non-eq list. It's pretty packed.

    EDani 12/17/2014  9:09am

    How long is the equity line? How many EMC's seem to be there?

    Rumor_in_StPetersburg 12/17/2014  9:24am

    This call is total shows. I need everyone to learn how to form a line, that if you are an EMC you do not start an unofficial list, and for this monitor to dial back the a-hole just a little.

    Rant over. Everybody break a leg.

    DeltaSigma[tos] 12/17/2014  9:28am

    Just signed in and there were 22 EMCs. The non-eq list is at about 75.

    superoriginalscreenname 12/17/2014  9:34am

    Are morning equity appointments filled up yet?

    BroadwayCallMe! 12/17/2014  9:39am

    Oh, Dan...

    belt4daze 12/17/2014  9:49am

    How many emc?

    auditiondaddy 12/17/2014  9:51am

    Still a few appointments left

    skizzle 12/17/2014  9:52am

    I thought someone was going to complain about this monitor to Equity. He is terrible!

    Peacefrombrokenpieces 12/17/2014  10:05am

    ^Really? Dan is usually very pleasant; he just gets angry when people don't listen to him.

    bwaylvsong 12/17/2014  10:10am

    ^^ he's always in the worst mood. Doesn't answer questions. Could care less. Let's find some positive monitors, eh equity?

    OhHeyy 12/17/2014  10:16am

    Call says brief song, have they given specifics on length by chance?

    song&dance 12/17/2014  10:19am

    Exactly. He's just a bitter, unemployed actor. Also, he isn't that great of a monitor. He knows the EPA rules really well but never seems that concerned with getting non-union seen. I wouldn't even waste my time today hanging around there if I wasn't equity or EMC.

    Peacefrombrokenpieces 12/17/2014  10:25am

    Is Adam Caldwell there?

    Peacefrombrokenpieces 12/17/2014  10:26am

    So... About that cut... 32 bar? What's the deal?

    song&dance 12/17/2014  10:39am

    Um... I'm pretty positive I'm 64 on the non-eq list. Was there another one made?

    Katelynn Kenney 12/17/2014  10:44am

    Who's in the room? And what are they asking for?

    BAnon 12/17/2014  10:58am

    Non-eq come back after lunch. Dan has always gotten EMCs in the room; I've never had experience with him as a non-eq.

    sarahsoda4 12/17/2014  11:05am

    Dan is wonderful. He just doesn't have patience for dumb questions, or people walking into a professional audition who are not prepared. He's all about getting as many people in the room as possible.

    Fatniss_Neverlean 12/17/2014  11:14am

    Adam is in the room (yay!)

    Dan, our monitor, is doing a great job moving the lists along and clearly wants as many people as possible to be seen. Seems like he's hoping to call some EMC before lunch at this rate.

    Break legs, all!

    aceofcakes 12/17/2014  11:15am

    Forgot to write it down - could someone post the first/last names of who was/is INTR, please? Thanks!

    maltese 12/17/2014  11:17am

    In the room was Adam Caldwell- casting director and Rick Bertone- MD

    navynote 12/17/2014  11:20am

    Are There any appointments left for equity before lunch? What about after?

    nycactor26 12/17/2014  11:20am

    Just because this guy lines up EMC and nonequity does not mean he is "trying to get as many people seen as possible." I've been to many an audition with him as a monitor where the apoinent line was done with time to spare but he did not set up a mini group of non-equity or EMC. And God forbid he monitors an audition at the AEA audition center. He surely does not go out to that waiting room to let the non-equity actors know what's going on. I understand his primary concern as the monitor is to get equity members seen, and the people in the waiting room are non-equity, but they're still people...

    I have had some lovely interactions with him, but that does not change the fact that when I show up and see his face behind the desk, I get a little sad.

    I'm sure he deals with 1 million stupid questions a day, but that doesn't mean he has to be so curt. He has the job; we're all trying to get one.

    DeltaSigma[tos] 12/17/2014  11:36am

    Any EMCs called yet?

    Peacefrombrokenpieces 12/17/2014  11:36am

    I've always had good experiences with Dan as a noneq.

    Icanseeyou 12/17/2014  11:38am

    15 of 25 equity alternates called. No EMC yet.

    aceofcakes 12/17/2014  11:44am

    To answer an earlier question about the ACTUAL audition: they're asking for 32 bars or less, with a big emphasis on the "Less."

    SSDM23 12/17/2014  11:54am

    Any EMC or alternate updates?

    Peacefrombrokenpieces 12/17/2014  12:10pm

    27 of the 35 alternates have been seen. No EMC, non equity told to come back after lunch.

    Soonest equity appointment available is 3:15 (that's what I overheard a few minutes ago)

    Fruitonbottom 12/17/2014  12:34pm

    Any EMCs seen yet, and if so what number are they on?

    Kitty 12/17/2014  1:04pm

    No EMCs called and there are almost 50. Lunch is at 1:30. I would say 100% definitively that no non-unions will be seen today but I am obviously not the monitor or from casting.

    Peacefrombrokenpieces 12/17/2014  1:17pm

    Just broke for lunch. No EMCs yet. Back at 2:30

    superoriginalscreenname 12/17/2014  1:36pm

    Non Equity list is closed. Very few equity appointments left. Last I heard 5:30 is the soonest, but that was 30 mins ago.

    Fruitonbottom 12/17/2014  1:43pm

    They've closed the noneq list? This is an EPA, I didn't think the list closed like during an ECC, am I mistaken?

    Icanseeyou 12/17/2014  1:59pm

    would anyone be able to say if they're accepting drop offs for noneq?

    nikki113 12/17/2014  2:02pm

    Any time someone comes in to sign up for non eq they are told it is closed and they may leave their headshot and resume if they want.

    Fruitonbottom 12/17/2014  2:02pm

    I've never seen that before at an EPA, well now at least I don't need to hurry out of work haha.

    Icanseeyou 12/17/2014  2:09pm

    Anyone have a post-lunch update? Have they started seeing any EMC?

    aceofcakes 12/17/2014  3:01pm

    No EMCs yet.

    superoriginalscreenname 12/17/2014  3:18pm

    Just started the EMC list!

    superoriginalscreenname 12/17/2014  3:31pm

    Please keep updating on how many EMCs they get through! Thx!!

    Peacefrombrokenpieces 12/17/2014  4:02pm

    Any idea of who was in the room with Adam? Thanks guys!

    Fatniss_Neverlean 12/17/2014  4:13pm

    Hey, any idea if CBs were given in the room at all??

    jewel14 12/17/2014  4:30pm

    They just released all non-eq. I think they are on the 8th EMC.

    superoriginalscreenname 12/17/2014  4:36pm

    Fatniss-- Rick Bertone, MD, and Dan Green, acc.

    Jewel-- I wouldn't expect so...not at an EPA like this.

    Icanseeyou-- technically, I'm pretty sure there's no rule of what they can or can't do with a non eq list. After all...it's an Equity audition, and you're not protected by any union, so...until that changes, you're left at the mercy of the casting team/monitor's whims. I don't say that to be mean or condescending...just the shitty reality to keep in mind, and I do hope you have the opportunity to receive the protection of a union soon! But in the meantime, I would actually consider cutting off non eq sign ups as a courtesy. I've seen it before, and I've always taken it to mean "sorry, late-comer non eq folk, there's no way we will get through all the people on this list, so don't waste your time by signing up and waiting around for a hopeless case. Go get a coffee instead."

    Have2FinishTheHat 12/17/2014  8:12pm

    I encourage anyone who has an issue with that monitor's behavior to report it to equity. in the past, he trash talked about me & my song choice to a friend who was waiting (unresponsive) to go in right after me. When they asked me for a second song he got even more furious and stormed in with the fury of a thousand suns before my song was even over. no one should have to deal with something like that union or not.

    ethnicrealness 12/17/2014  8:22pm

    Did anyone receive any callbacks?

    Best!

    LilMermaid66 12/18/2014  11:19am

    Bump! Any CB's?

    James1 12/18/2014  6:42pm

    Hat,

    I actually agree about the closing of the noneq list to a point but I think we all know that at the end of the day 2/3 of that list won't be there, so I don't see the point in closing it.

    Are any non-equity going to this call today, even though they had a non-eq call yesterday? Wondering if I should go twice.... Thanks!

    GinaBeana

    Went today, not too many guys. Did anyone else think the director/choreographer was a bit curt and a tad rude, and that the choreo was a little too 80s-gay-jazz?

    Astoriaboy 12/17/2014  1:05pm

    Astoriaboy..... Can u tell more about the dance combo(s)? Anyone know what song the girls danced to? I guess it's safe to say they are NOT using original choreo??

    Thx!

    StruggleBus678 12/17/2014  1:14pm

    @astoriaboy. YES! Felt same way. I went yesterday and didn't like the choreography and I definitely wouldn't want to work for him! He was rude.

    lindsaylu 12/17/2014  1:19pm

    Does anyone know what it looks like over there for the female singers who dance? Does it look like they'll see non-eqs? Any bit of info helps! Thanks!

    Samanthaashley77 12/17/2014  4:20pm

    Would still love to know, what song did you dance to?

    Have2FinishTheHat 12/17/2014  6:50pm

    I don't want to bash him but, yes the choreographer was ridiculously rude, so much that it was laughable. It definitely made me take note that I would not want to ever work for him. It cracked me up considering the choreography was laughable as well. But, to each their own.

    CantaloupeOak 12/17/2014  7:42pm

    Wrong thread. Sorry about how bad I suck! Carry on, west siders.

    Have2FinishTheHat 12/17/2014  7:51pm

    @cantelopeoak- totally agree with you!
    @wouldneverleaveju - danced to America- and there was a movement to a certain piece of the music that should have been like 5 movements - very strange!
