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

Gig&Tell: Musicals Tonight

  • Casey Colgan 10/12/2017  1:18am

    I have worked for musicals tonight and Casey colgan seperately. I love musicals tonight or what it was but do not work for Casey. First he only casts people he wants to sleep with and it obvious. I've been to hes apartment after a show and there's a bed in the living room for booking up with guys in his shows. You can't make this stuff up.

    Also in his auditions he's known to say inappropriate comments about young gay men and MAKE women wear CROP TOPS and men SHORTLESS. It's degrading and tacky and Mel Miller should it allow this.

    *Mel Miller should not allow this. *Shirtless AU doesn't allow editing.

  • LOVE this company! 10/18/2014  7:40pm

    These people are the best. Kind, professional, fun, and supportive. I see post all the time on AU asking if the OP "should audition." YES. OMG, why wouldn't you? It's in the city, non-taxable stipend, and only a month of your time.

    If you look down on this company and their work you're a jerk. Period. Everyone should take this job!

    Ughhh I didn't rate.

    Mel Miller might be one of the kindest people I have ever come into contact with. My whole experience with musicals tonight was amazing. The cast was so talented, and from all different stages of their careers (from Broadway vets to non equity, recent college graduates)
    The shows sold pretty well, and it was overall just a lot of fun.
    Everyone should do an MT show. Such a rewarding process.
