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 AuditionUpdate.com 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.

    Are there any members of The Actors Studio here? Has anyone auditioned? Know anyone else that has? I'd love to hear what the process is actually like. Any insight would be appreciated!

    I’ve participated in and attended readings through friends. Never auditioned though. I’m not sold on the work that they do there or the level of talent in the room. I think it falls somewhere between being masturbatory and clinically insane.

    To be fair, I had a really terrible experience with a psychotic acting guru who is (in some way) affiliated with them, so that might’ve colored my experience.

    I think if you start slumping in a chair and screaming during your audition, they’ll probably love you.

    I go to the Actors Studio Drama School and go to Actors Studio sessions a lot. It really depends on who you’re working with, what scene you work on, who your moderator/auditioner is...many great artists in the studio but there are maaaany members. You pick a scene that’s no longer than 5 minutes. One scene per auditionee— If your scene partner wants to audition they need to find their own scene to audition with. The scene they do with you counts only as your audition. There are two rounds of auditions. I think the first round passed, and the second round of auditions is in June. (Don’t quote me on that). But seriously, Alec Baldwin moderates at the Actors Studio a lot, Ellen Burstyn too. Mark Rylance was just there...it’s a good but not tight knit community like other smaller studios
