    I recently went in for a show for which I should be a shoo-in (at least for a CB or to be brought in front of the team). I've played the role at a major regional theater, provided proof of several favorable reviews, etc.

    It wasn't my best ever audition, but I know it didn't totally suck. It's for a tour, and my only tour credits are TYA, so there's that possibility.

    No callback, no chance to bring what I could offer before the production team. I sent a polite email to the CD, thanking them for the initial audition, etc.

    I know for a fact that they're having some trouble casting the role, so it's doubly weird that they wouldn't even bring someone in who's right for the role and has done it before, to some measure of success.

    How do you guys play it when the CD puts up a block, for whatever reason? I know there are other jobs out there, yadda yadda. I feel like we have so little leverage, absent a name or big ass credits.

    Should have mentioned this: I was brought in for the initial audition through emailing the CD directly, after I wasn't able to be seen at the open call. I have no history with this CD. It was my first time auditioning for this office.

    Sometimes if a male CD finds you attractive/hot - male or female , can grant you a call back just because you look so freaking nice - I can be a variety of things . Don’t get down

    I feel the same way. There are a few tours going out that I think I'd NAIL, but can't even get in the damn door, and I don't know why. And yet they keep posting looking for someone. Like, what do you have to lose by taking a chance? If I suck, don't call me back.
