    bummmmmmp I feel like the boys never respond to these requests for information in the morning lol. Did they see non-eq?

    alwaysabridesmaid 10/06/2015  11:57am

    bump? help us out! :)

    ihopeigetit 10/06/2015  12:00pm


    Tadimurner 10/06/2015  12:12pm

    It appears that they did see the non eq boys (this is based on the fact that the list of boys was maybe 30 ppl and they all had check marks next to their names.) Girls are around 46.

    alwaysabridesmaid 10/06/2015  12:42pm

    Are they seeing non Eq ladies?!?!

    prisoneroflove 10/06/2015  2:30pm

    what's the point of having this website if we don't help each other out? So many people were asking if they were seeing non-eq and no one responded

    decisions 10/06/2015  9:49pm

    did they end up seeing non eq ladies? trying to gauge the EPA later this week.

    jaylady 10/06/2015  10:08pm

    Yes, they ended up seeing noneq (both men & ladies)

    Sometimes people are busy stretching and/or catching up with friends- people don't spend every moment of the day checking AU to answer everyone's questions.

    PineapplePrincess 10/06/2015  10:37pm

    i totally get it. It can be extremely frustrating when you're at work trying to figure out if it's worth hauling a$$ to get to the audition if they're not even seeing non-equity and you don't know about it. Or if they don't take the unofficial in the morning and have to rush back, etc etc. Unfortunately not everyone knows about AU. It definitely is stressful and you are validated in feeling that way :)

    jaylady 10/06/2015  11:37pm

    Okay PineapplePrincess, why the rude bitch Regina George post?
    We all know that Audition Update is a genius tool that helps everyone in the audition lines, and gives to yourself/the people consistently. Why be snarky when someone asks a question? Too busy "stretching, and catching up with your friends." Well, you should get your head out of your pineapplely princess ass, because those friends your stretching with probably couldn't give more than 3 turds about your existence. The art we're all pursuing is all about collaboration, and clearly your team playing isn't up to par.

    Hithere 10/07/2015  12:33am

    ^ wow! Well if that isn't the pot calling the kettle black, then I don't know what is!

    Little_Oak 10/07/2015  1:20am

    If I had seen the question, I would have answered the question. When I'm on AuditionUpdate, I give updates, but as human beings, we don't have to check our phones all the time. I didn't check my phone for 3 hours because I was busy living my life and my head wasn't buried in my phone. Not sorry!

    PineapplePrincess 10/07/2015  1:44am

    The beauty of this site only works if people are actively posting. That's all.

    lots of people there?

    whoowhoo 10/06/2015  9:17am

    A handful of Equity waiting for the building to open along with the 25ish on the non eq list.

    texicalyorker 10/06/2015  9:27am

    The building opens at 9:30, yes?

    EMCLost 10/06/2015  9:36am

    Am I just being dumb? The doors are locked at theatre row studios. 410 w 41st st, right? Is there another door we should be using?

    Justgottasay 10/06/2015  9:39am

    Yep I'm dumb.

    Justgottasay 10/06/2015  9:41am

    Anyone have an EMC count?

    catsrevival 10/06/2015  10:07am

    Non eq at about 32. Unofficial list was transferred over

    MTC 10/06/2015  10:22am

    How are appts looking. Can't come till afternoon

    itsallinthestruggle 10/06/2015  10:37am

    whoowhoo 10/06/2015  12:13pm

    How many EMC's are signed up? Have any been seen?

    jules1 10/06/2015  12:17pm

    Monitor says he is unlikely to call any non Union before lunch. No EMCs called yet

    MTC 10/06/2015  12:23pm

    How far into EMC did they get? Lunch is at 2:30 right? So non eq should check back at 3:30?

    eroseb 10/06/2015  1:46pm

    EMC sent to lunch, none called.

    Justgottasay 10/06/2015  2:32pm

    Any idea how many people are left on the alternate list before EMC?

    EMCLost 10/06/2015  2:55pm

    theres about 50 left on the equity alternate list and about 53 EMC I believe. at least 60 non eq as well. monitor told an EMC to come back at 5

    ksbergslien 10/06/2015  3:04pm

    I'm number 3 on the non eq list and was told to come back at 5-5:30

    wrlowe 10/06/2015  3:50pm

    any update on how far they're getting? not sure if I should come back if they're moving slow....

    texicalyorker 10/06/2015  4:25pm

    theres a sign outside that says appts are filled?

    itsallinthestruggle 10/06/2015  4:38pm

    I also saw the sign on the door. Can anyone be an angel and update us? (Equity appts/ how fast the alt list is moving?)

    littlered 10/06/2015  5:22pm

    Appts full, but moving through alts quickly. Last I heard 52 out of 61 had been called, maybe more by now.

    bwaybound 10/06/2015  5:25pm

    Hey guys just checked in. Again. Im number 3 on the non eq list. I was told that they probably won't get to me. So take that as you will

    wrlowe 10/06/2015  5:37pm

    did they call any EMC?

    Sm101 10/06/2015  5:41pm

    He said he had like 50 emc to go through

    wrlowe 10/06/2015  5:42pm

    How did this end up? Also, can anyone tell me who was ITR?

    Has anyone heard about an unofficial list starting for people who didn't get an appointment?
    Never have auditioned for this theatre company and wondering if anyone else has experienced it with them!


    wondering the same thing. I didn't hear back for a slot...

    writteninthestars 10/06/2015  8:55pm

    i have not auditioned for them and have not received a slot. wondering if any on has appts

    haldaigle 10/06/2015  9:13pm

    They did give out some appointments via email!

    theatergal 10/06/2015  9:19pm

    I didn't get an appointment time because they said they were all full, I was emailed and told they'd be accepting drop ins throughout the day

    decisions 10/06/2015  9:48pm

  • Encores ECC 10/7 @ Actor's Equity Center 10/06/2015  8:03pm

    Does anyone know if you can attend this ECC if you were already seen at the EPA? I'd also like to be considered for ensemble, but wasn't sure if it would be strange to attend twice... Has anyone ever done something like this before?


    There's no rule against it, but I would only do it if you are presenting something different-otherwise it's just a waste of time-you can still be considered for ensemble at an EPA, and vice-versa.

    SansaIsMyHomegirl 10/06/2015  8:27pm

    Ok! Thank you so much :)

    thatgirlsings 10/06/2015  8:50pm

    This is going to be my first time attending an ECC at this building. Can anyone give insight on if they take an unofficial list? I've heard they don't at the actors equity building. Trying to figure out how early one should get there to sign up. Thanks!

    I believe so.

    jaylady 10/05/2015  5:23pm

    Does anyone know if they're looking for real children or adults to play children?

    flyingtoast 10/05/2015  7:26pm

    On the Actors Access breakdown for this, it said, "Also seeking 3 teenage actresses for the following roles...", so seems like they want real kids.

    actorsmom 10/06/2015  6:52am

    What time are people trying to get over there this morning?

    EMCLost 10/06/2015  7:12am

    15 on non eq list just after 9

    Wackawacka 10/06/2015  10:39am

    Any info on EMC? How long is the list, has he started calling from it?

    irishrogue 10/06/2015  10:41am

    I was just there, 2nd EMC called, then they called up through 5 when I left.

    Canadianactor 10/06/2015  10:56am

    EMC's have all been seen through 25 but I imagine people are making later appts since the sides are cold.

    aka 10/06/2015  11:11am

    just called through 8 on non eq

    MTC 10/06/2015  11:24am

    Are they asking for accents?

    Also, any idea who's itr?

    ganymede 10/06/2015  12:50pm

    When I left an hour ago they had called all non eq on the list. ITR Jesse Marchese, associate director, and Jen Mcvey, reader.

    MTC 10/06/2015  12:59pm

    Do we know if they said yes or no to accents that are in the breakdown?

    YouKnowYouKindaLoveAndrewLloydWebber--Don'tHate 10/06/2015  1:06pm

    Yes they wanted accents.

    eroseb 10/06/2015  1:36pm

    They are flying through the list, get it non eq ladies! Asking for accents

    Mh 10/06/2015  3:03pm

    Just FYI-- I got seen, but there's only one person in the room and he didn't pay attention to my read and didn't even look at my resume. I'm not sure they're actually considering non-eqs.

    actenn 10/06/2015  5:04pm

    If my eyes deceived me, it looked as though Jonathan Bank was ITR after lunch. Can anyone confirm that?
