• DEH Tour casting 05/17/2018  11:50am

    They just announced that the Broadway cover for Evan/Connor/Jared will be headlining the tour. That’s great, I totally understand why a team would choose someone they trust for such a huge role.

    But then why did they bother with those huge open calls and waste the time of all those hopeful young men all over the country? Seems like a publicity stunt rather than an actual search.

    ‡‡‡

    To be fair, I double checked both those open call postings and neither specified Broadway or Tour. BUT...your point still stands. Why do it if your going to cast someone who you know and trust? Which of course is fine, that’s normal. But who knows, could be for future purposes also.

    Maybe they didn’t find anyone they liked? Maybe one of them will be the understudy? Broadway replacement? I’m sure they have people on file from those auditions and they weren’t for show.

    I know a few people from all over the country who have had "Work sessions" with the team - some right out of college, some seasoned professionals, but none of them NYC based.

    That said, I think it's kind of shitty to make someone fly to NYC regularly and then they don't cast. Like, it's 2018, SKYPE people, video auditions, etc. It's rude.

    Is this fully cast then?
