Audition Update is moving. Click here to learn more.

Hello Everyone,

You’ve heard us talking about it all summer, and we’re finally ready to show you what we’ve been working on. I’m proud to announce that is moving to its new home on the Backstage Community.

What are the benefits of this new location? It’s anonymous, it's mobile-friendly, it’s easier to police spam content and fake accounts, and best of all, it has collapsed threads! In addition, our developer team will be able to make changes, fix bugs, and implement new features much faster and easier on this new platform.

You’ll notice there’s a banner across the top of the screen here advertising the new location. If you click through that link, it will bring you to the registration screen where you can create your account and automatically receive the “Veteran” flair for being an Audition Update user. Even if you already have a Backstage account, clicking through the link will grant you the flair automatically so everyone will know you’ve been here a while and know what you’re talking about.

We’ll be decommissioning this forum slowly over the coming weeks, so you should save any threads or details that you want to reference later at your earliest convenience.

We know this will really help to improve things here at Audition Update, and we want to thank you - the community - for being here with us through the whole process.

– The Backstage Community Team

    Figured I'd start a new thread since there are so many and they're hard to find. Anyone have any info on what's going on/how casting is going?

    Anything at all? Bumping for forever...

    ADeCe 02/08/2018  2:09pm

    they're having an open call for Evan Hansen soon

    beltingbadass 02/08/2018  2:23pm

    bump on if anyone has heard anything about the Jared track.

    hereforthis 02/08/2018  2:32pm

    There is an open call on the 25th for the Role of Evan ONLY, Nat'l Tour/Bway replacments @ Pearl, in the posting it says they aren't going to be honoring an unofficial list and sign ups are 9-12, I can only imagine the crowd that's gonna be there. Based on that, it would be relatively safe to say they have casted the rest of the tour at this point

    I attended the EPA on Nov. 30th as a non-eq and missed being seen by 1 of the non-eq list, I like the odds better for non-eqs this time around, it's just a matter of getting there early enough

    JLaud29 02/10/2018  5:02pm

    As far as Broadway is concerned, I think they really did prioritize the other roles, there is a good chance most of remaining OBC could leave in May, while the tour doesn't start rehearsing until August. That said, they're clearly still looking for their not-so-average leading men

    JLaud29 02/10/2018  5:05pm

    They have not cast the rest yet. It’s just taking a lonnng time

    Okayokay 02/10/2018  9:24pm

    @okayokay, they haven’t cast the tour yet? I assumed that, but just confirming! This process is a long oneeee.

    Any idea on when they’re gonna start making offers?

    ADeCe 02/11/2018  9:21am

    This is just based on some info from my agent pertaining to where I fit into the mix of what they’re figuring out. They may have cast certain principal tracks, idk, but they’re not done with all callbacks or casting

    Okayokay 02/11/2018  10:58am

    Anyone have an appointment today/have any updates?

    nyc626 02/12/2018  1:16pm


    ADeCe 02/13/2018  2:03pm

    Romperseveryday 02/13/2018  2:11pm

    Another day another bump!

    nyc626 02/14/2018  5:58pm

    Callback for an u/s track at the end of the month

    Okayokay 02/15/2018  9:25pm

    @okayokay, is this for the tour?? And is this your first time going in for the team?

    ADeCe 02/15/2018  11:45pm

    Yes for the tour and yes my first time going in for anyone beyond Lindsey

    Okayokay 02/16/2018  12:18am
