    Has the line started yet? Do you think a tent will fit on the sidewalk outside pearl?


    The open call is on Sunday

    TJ5616 02/23/2018  11:19pm

    Yeah I'm getting ready for a 48 hour stakeout

    extremelynoneq 02/24/2018  12:05am


    Normsunderstudy 02/24/2018  12:14am

    I would sure hope they didn't start a line a day early! As for the tent idea I don't think that would matter as it's going to be raining. Hard. Maybe the doorman wouldn't mind some company in the lobby

    JLaud29 02/24/2018  9:32am

    Somebody started an unofficial non-eq list for the EPA in November... wasn't received very well...

    JLaud29 02/24/2018  9:34am

    Yeah I understand if people want to get there early, but let’s not have a repeat of Theater Barn. There’s no unofficial list. Get some sleep and stay dry.

    TJ5616 02/24/2018  11:32am

    ^^oh man what happened @ Theater Barn

    JLaud29 02/24/2018  1:37pm

    So what time should we be expecting to show up?

    Ayylmao 02/24/2018  1:44pm

    I'm getting there no later than 3:30am

    austinsky23 02/24/2018  2:23pm

    they’re taking sign-ups until noon and it’s only for guys... why in the world would you camp out for this...

    RockNRoll 02/24/2018  2:26pm

    Yeah I agree! Will it be busy? Of course!! But if it's a 10-6 call, with a specific type of character, I can't imagine it being worth camping out for.

    singingguy123 02/24/2018  2:43pm

    I'm coming in on a redeye from reno, nevada. Only flight I could get so short notice. Will I get in if I get there at 9 AM?

    Nickthedude 02/24/2018  4:07pm

    I’m personally already in line

    bewp 02/24/2018  4:15pm

    Nick, do you LAND at 9 am? Depending on your airport that's cutting it super close unless you hop in an expensive ass uber

    bewp 02/24/2018  4:17pm

    I agree with rocknroll personally. If the call goes from 10-5 and they see roughly 30/hour that means they’ll have time to see 210 guys. And i think they could even see more than 30 per hour. I’m sure there will be peeps in line at 3/4am but i find it hard to believe that 200 non union guys will be in line by say 8am... i think if you get in line by 7/7:30 we’ll be safe. Especially cause it’s just a guys call. Of course i could be proven wrong, and i get that ppl coming from out of town really don’t wanna risk not getting seen.

    crooton94 02/24/2018  4:32pm

    @DoUHearWhatIHear that's some dedication right there

    JLaud29 02/24/2018  5:31pm

    ^^ also is there actually a line or are you starting it? Making me nervous already haha

    JLaud29 02/24/2018  5:32pm

    No dude hahaha that's fuckin insane. I agree with every person posting on here that's over 23 years old: this call will be manageable- no need for early ass lines ESPECIALLY if they are taking names til NOON.

    I know this and I'm not even going to this one hahah

    bewp 02/24/2018  5:47pm

    Ya got me lol. I'm going CAMPING early but certainly on the early side

    JLaud29 02/24/2018  6:26pm

    Are people really camping out? I’m getting there early but isn’t camping out a little extreme?

    aactorb18 02/24/2018  7:05pm

    seems to be that way, but not camping won't ruin your chances is the general consenus

    JLaud29 02/24/2018  7:28pm

    So wait, how many people are already there in line then?

    Helga Fierstein 02/24/2018  9:45pm

    Dudes, I just walked by and there is NOBODY camped out and the lobby looked virtually empty too. Plus any lobby-campers would be kicked out once the building closes anyway. Dont risk a good audition with camping out in the rain overnight.

    (Still should probably be there early af though)

    davidspumpkins 02/24/2018  9:49pm

    Hey guys, there is NO need to get there early for this. They are taking names from 9-Noon so they can likely see 200+ people. It will be raining all day tomorrow, so implement some self care & don’t stand out in the rain & get yourself sick! (A sick, unrested, exhausted actor does no one any good!)

    Stay chill, keep it positive, and break legs to all!

    369damnurfine 02/24/2018  10:24pm

    Let’s all calm down. There is going to be a line regardless what we all say, so let’s get rest and get ready.

    Singertryingtodance13 02/24/2018  10:58pm

    Let’s direct our attention to this SLAYAGE...

    Singertryingtodance13 02/24/2018  11:08pm

    Hey guys! I just wanted to let y’all know that as of two minutes ago there is no one there so don’t worry

    Jk_larkin 02/25/2018  1:48am

    Any update on how long the line is rn?

    broadwaybih 02/25/2018  4:22am

    There are about 15. They are singing in the rain...literally -_- a bit too early to warm up imo

    Amt0227 02/25/2018  4:29am


    Helga Fierstein 02/25/2018  4:31am

    40ish give or take gentleman!

    GodHelpTheNonEqs 02/25/2018  5:27am

    Bump for line #

    crooton94 02/25/2018  5:59am

    Also any idea when they’ll let us wait inside?

    crooton94 02/25/2018  6:00am

    How many in line now?

    EmpLuke 02/25/2018  6:07am

    At the descression of the doorman, they sometimes let you in the lobby at 6, but Pearl doesn’t open till 8.

    02/25/2018  6:07am

    I would guess 90 eyeballing it.

    GodHelpTheNonEqs 02/25/2018  6:09am

    ^yea I’d say so, it’s around the block stretched down 36th. Probably 85-100

    bigmoney_salvia 02/25/2018  6:17am

    Any point I. Showing up anymore? Haha remember when everyone was saying don’t worry about waking up too early 😂😂😂😂😂

    rayc1 02/25/2018  6:33am

    Highly recommend still coming! It’s not as many people as it seems. They’re going to be there for several hours. And it’s 16 bars - which means y’all have 30 seconds to sing. So they’ll be seeing like 80 an hour. Move your butts and get down here if you wanna sing!!

    Ican Cook II 02/25/2018  6:46am

    Do y’all think I’m screwing myself if I wait a little longer to line up? Walking to the station made me wanna die, let alone standing in it for another hour before doors open.

    mrsmeeee 02/25/2018  6:52am

    Definitely still come! Give yourself the opportunity (and if you were planning on yourself a favor and DON’T. Get an uber or lyft or something). That said, probably over one hundred people in line, give or take (it’s kind of deceiving...I also lost track of counting after twenty...I blame ADD).

    IdolTenor19 02/25/2018  7:13am

    The current # of guys is like, I dunno, my a butt load..a couple of butt loads. This is the baby face hunger games

    rscactor 02/25/2018  7:35am

    The current # of guys is like, I dunno, my a butt load..a couple of butt loads. This is the baby face hunger games

    rscactor 02/25/2018  7:36am

    *maybe a butt load, woww how embarrassing

    rscactor 02/25/2018  7:36am

    There’s at least 5 people in line, I know that

    austinsky23 02/25/2018  7:38am

    Have they opened the lobby yet? How many people will fit in there?

    mrsmeeee 02/25/2018  7:52am

    Alright Y’all. Let’s not play the “jump people in line” game when we get in the elevator. Just remember who’s before and after you....

    02/25/2018  7:59am

    Are people cutting?? Rude...

    IdolTenor19 02/25/2018  8:05am

    How many twinks?

    TommyWisaeu 02/25/2018  8:08am

    How many do we think are in line , more than 100 , more than 200?

    02/25/2018  8:20am

    In a,cab i hope this works. Thanks for the updates

    Nickthedude 02/25/2018  8:21am

    If I had to guess there's 250. We are now in a line inside pearl. My elevator experience was pleasant and everyone was respectful of everyone's place in line when we exited.

    AJ89 02/25/2018  8:37am

    So many twinks it’s like a weho pride festival and A Call Me By Your Name Screening had a white baby

    broadwaybih 02/25/2018  8:46am


    camose 02/25/2018  9:11am

    How is sign-in working? Are they giving estimated times to come back?

    bwaylvsong 02/25/2018  9:13am

    This shit is brutal y’all

    turnturnkickturn 02/25/2018  9:14am

    So does the ratio of cute guys to waiting time make it worth it? Asking for a friend

    Dan1624 02/25/2018  9:15am more than two hundred. Probably more than 350. For one role. This is ridiculous.

    Also 30 seconds??? Efff....

    IdolTenor19 02/25/2018  9:22am

    Wait, so they're not typing by having everyone stand in a line and belt a Bb???

    bwaylvsong 02/25/2018  9:31am

    Since we're all scattered throughout the building, let's get update on numbers when we can! Have fun everyone

    singingguy123 02/25/2018  9:32am

    They said about 60 an hour to give u a time frame, but yes please update what they’re at I’m over a 100 so I left for a bit

    Keepcalmandpetpugs96 02/25/2018  9:37am

    Ya let’s def keep each other posted on what numbers have been called if possible!! break legs all!

    crooton94 02/25/2018  9:37am

    They told everyone 1-60 to report to room 1214

    TJ5616 02/25/2018  9:38am

    Thanks, @keepcalm!
    There's still a long line to get upstairs!

    bwaylvsong 02/25/2018  9:53am

    They told everyone 1-60 to report to room 1214

    TJ5616 02/25/2018  9:59am

    Collected headshots through 60

    GodHelpTheNonEqs 02/25/2018  10:05am

    Over 400!
    To clarify so those who come later aren't confused like I was (and thus get a higher number than they should), there is no list- just take a slip from the table with a number on it. I was just told to come back around 4.

    bwaylvsong 02/25/2018  10:09am

    Does anyone know if they are typing at all? Did we get a response to this?

    IdolTenor19 02/25/2018  10:13am

    They are not typing, everyone who signs up is aimed to get in the room

    singingguy123 02/25/2018  10:18am

    Ok so I'll give the lowdown: that was the most brutal 7 hours of my existence. Yes I am one of the crazy yahoos who camped and The doorman was NOT PLEASED or in any way amused by early arrival and did not even let us into the doors before the lobby. Literally would walk up and stare at us and then walk away.

    Definitely over 400 people here at the moment.

    ITR there are two rooms! One Is Tara Rubin with Aaron Jodoin accomp. Thats where i went

    The other is Lindsay Levine with Adam Laird accomp.

    Monitor is Xavier Rubiano And several casting assistants are present.

    Best of luck y'all I'm going home!

    JLaud29 02/25/2018  10:18am

    Number 60-120 called

    CheeseballzAnyone 02/25/2018  10:29am

    Does anyone think if I went now it’d be a waste being they finish at 5?

    Dan1624 02/25/2018  10:31am

    ^I think you'll be fine. Looks like they saw 60 people in 45 minutes

    bwaylvsong 02/25/2018  10:41am

    *actually less than that!

    bwaylvsong 02/25/2018  10:42am

    They just called up to 180 into the holding room

    Keepcalmandpetpugs96 02/25/2018  11:14am

    You think they’ll officially stop sign ups at 12? :( I don’t think I’ll make it in time

    Dan1624 02/25/2018  11:16am

    What time is lunch?

    As_the_gayz_go_bi 02/25/2018  11:48am


    dad_maxx 02/25/2018  12:15pm

    camose 02/25/2018  1:08pm

    Just called up to 250 something to line up

    AJ89 02/25/2018  1:12pm

    As_the_gayz_go_bi 02/25/2018  2:15pm

    bwaylvsong 02/25/2018  3:25pm

    What was the final total for the day I'm just curious

    JLaud29 02/26/2018  12:41am

    I think I heard something like 446

    bwaylvsong 02/26/2018  12:43am
