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

    Has anyone auditioned for them before? Only asking because I got the sides index for a new play they’re doing and it’s two sides, 19 pages... saying they *might* not make it all the way through either side

    Really good play, but I haven’t encountered this with any theatre audition regionally or in NY *including some relatively high profile gigs*

    Anyone have any experience with them? Just seems kinda bonkers for a first read. Maybe I’m being a princess though.


    Are they using a casting agency or do they cast completely on their own? I ask because that sounds like a casting director who’s somewhat notorious for doing that.

    They’re using a casting director. Kim Moarefi.

    I assume you are in NY. I must say you all are a bit delicate there. Here in LA 45 min to 1 hr late is the rule or thumb. It does seem to me that NY er’s do seem to bitch a bit. What’s happened to NY?
