8 Audition Book Myths

BY AMIE MARIE STEWART via www.backstage.com As a voice teacher in New York City, I work with many newly arrived actors packing tons of talent, great training, and a whole lot of misconceptions about their audition books. I recently conducted interviews with industry experts, from Broadway actors to casting directors, and what I learned might surprise some new to the city…even some who aren’t. Here are eight of the most common audition book myths out there. 1. A typical audition book has around 20 songs.  The experts agreed that the best audition books have a total of 6-9 songs, max. “At some level, that’s the number of songs a performer could have ready at a moment’s notice,” says casting director Michael Cassara. A huge book is a red flag that the actor won’t be prepared on songs th...

How Much Money Do Broadway Actors Make?

BY LOGAN CULWELL-BLOCK via www.playbill.com If you’ve ever wondered how much your favorite Broadway artists earn for the work they do, you’re in luck. Thanks to public standard union contracts, we know what the base salary is for Broadway performers, stage managers, and musicians. These minimum rates are only for professionals on Broadway and are calculated by the week since, unlike other vocations who report annual salaries, artists will not necessarily be employed by their Broadway show for a full year. Data for actors and stage managers comes from Actors’ Equity. These figures are valid as of October 2, 2017, and are scheduled to remain through September 29, 2018, after which most of these rates will increase slightly. Musician pay rates comes from Local 802. Their rates are valid as of...

BY KRISTYN BRADY via www.dancemagazine.com If you made it through several cuts but didn’t land a contract, you’re probably wondering what went wrong. It’s perfectly acceptable to ask for feedback—if you go about it the right way. Here’s how company and casting directors want to hear from you so you’ll be remembered for your dancing (not for nagging). DON’T Follow Up Prematurely If you get cut in the first round, it’s not necessary to follow up. Photo by Jim Lafferty for Pointe. If you didn’t make the first cut, don’t follow up. Andrea Zee, a casting director for Broadway musicals and tours, says she can’t be helpful unless you’ve made it through several cuts. “It’s just too hard with the number of people we’...
