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.

– The Backstage Community Team

  • UGH. Okay, idk what I did, but I spazzed and somehow this got posted. I was trying to ask best places in NJ to live to commute for auditions. Looking to leave the city. Also wondering what NJ professional theatre scene is like. White fences are calling me, as much as I hate to admit it. Thoughts on the "cities" near the city like Hoboken/Jersey City? I might try it out there before going too far West. But, would love insight from my friends in the suburbs as well. Thanks!

    We live in Harrison, NJ (right outside of newark) and it's perfect! We have a pool, bocce ball, a few bars, ping pong. bbq pits, doorman, etc in our building. It takes me 28 mins to get to 33rd/herold square or 18 mins to get to world trade center if you need to be downtown. It's all on the PATH which take MTA cards. Hope this helps!

    I second Harrison. I'm currently in Brooklyn but my boyfriend is originally from Kearney (right next to Harrison) and we are consistently amazed by how cool and developed that industrial area right outside the PATH station is getting. Everytime we visit his parents we are tempted to schedule a viewing of those new apartments on Kearney ave.
