  • NY Hamilton Open Call @ Chelsea Studios 05/02/2016  12:44pm

    Hi! Is anyone planning on camping out outside of Chelsea? I'm curious as to how crazy this is gonna be and if it's worth camping out for haha

    Luguer5

    I think it’d be awesome if people didn’t camp out and just started a list at a sensible hour!

    Singstar50 05/02/2016  4:03pm

    That's a beautiful idea ^

    stellar5678 05/02/2016  4:59pm

    I also agree. however what is a sensible hour

    jfizzle4245 05/02/2016  5:02pm

    There's no list. Telsey never accepts lists for open calls. If you want to be seen early you need to wait in line.

    HoneyBooBoo 05/02/2016  5:03pm

    People keep saying telsey but it is at chelsea studios right? is telsey running the auditions?

    jfizzle4245 05/02/2016  5:05pm

    Telsey is running the auditions and it's at Chelsea studios tomorrow

    znt92 05/02/2016  5:49pm

    I was at the LA open call... (different coast different rules... disclaimer...)

    I arrived at 6am there was an unofficial list going around. There was 40-ish at 6am...
    Then toward 8am the list exploded to 210 people were sitting and clumping and hoping the list would be honored. then at 9am casting showed up some blessed intern lead the line to another door... and went by the unofficial list. And the official sign in process started.
    One fella did report camping out to be 10 on the list.
    Like I said different coast different rules-- I'd imagine NYC is bad ass hard core cur throat... I'd bet camping is going to occur.

    ChoirGeek1234 05/02/2016  5:58pm

    oh and... they allowed "one verse and one chorus"

    BUT it was acapella and they divided people into rooms... and I'm pretty sure the REAL casting director was only in 1 magical room... if you had the disfortune of being sent to the intern room you were doomed...
    (**Cue flashbacks to standing in the American Idol line**)

    seeing as im taking the midnight bus to ny for this, I have nowhere else to be, but it the rain for 4 hours :(

    nay123 05/02/2016  8:05pm

    Go to Starbucks boo πŸ‘†πŸΎ
    There's one on the corner of 26th and 7th

    DontSpeak 05/02/2016  8:13pm

    I overheard quite a few people planning on camping out. I would honestly be there no later than 5:30/ 6 am if you plan on being seen. (6am being you will probably be seen closer to 2pm)

    LegallyDone 05/02/2016  10:24pm

    Do they type at these???

    Ihearbwaycalling 05/02/2016  10:37pm

    ^At all the other calls (In Cali...) they didn't type out...
    (I think Hamilton is still in hot water from the union over the "non-white" word-age in the original casting notice... so they saw EVERYONE... but they ended the line... and stopped letting people in after a certain number... in LA I think it was 1,200)

    ChoirGeek1234 05/02/2016  10:44pm

    Soooooooooooooo people are already lined up for the audition just FYI. . . I know others are going home to grab stuff and heading over SOOOOO yea. . . . use that information as you will.

    Also, in terms of typing they do have the right to type of they choose. . . I know they are not looking for Ensemble dancers or King George at tomorrow's call so that might be a reason why they typed in the morning. (Hopefully this makes sense I'm tired)

    MaleGrad 05/02/2016  10:50pm

    But like, why don't we respect ourselves and each other enough to wait for the sun to come up on the actual audition date to line up? Go to sleep.

    Imasleep 05/02/2016  10:58pm

    Right! I am NOT throwing away my SLEEP.

    thefamousone 05/02/2016  11:12pm

    Who knows for sure about people lining up already ?

    Estrella.Electra.Eurydice 05/02/2016  11:16pm

    This is ridiculous... It's gonna start raining soon... Not only that doing a line that sacrifices your health your energy and your voice

    ILikeTheIslandManhattan 05/02/2016  11:17pm

    people are posting on Twitter about having already gotten in line! just search "Hamilton open call"

    SarahBrownEyes 05/02/2016  11:28pm

    HoneyBooBoo 05/02/2016  11:34pm

    I can confirm ppl are lined up already with my own eyes I saw

    Moremoneyplease 05/02/2016  11:56pm

    this like this are embarrassing. have a little pride in your work. this isn't a concert, it's art.

    this has to be people who don't live here right?

    Bailee1416 05/03/2016  12:05am

    It doesn't matter where you are from...this is just unacceptable on so many levels. I'm waiting for the day that shows stop having open calls because people aren't thinking and potentially putting themselves in danger.

    OptionUp 05/03/2016  12:08am

    For my fellow NYC-based working actors -
    I have already had one preliminary audition for Hamilton at telsey and co and haven't heard since so I figured I would just show up again to be seen by a different casting assistant/intern/maybe even the CD...but this looks like a madhouse that might not be worth me missing out on $$ from day job/sleep/health...Advice? Thanks as always and stay safe out there!

    littlebrowngirl 05/03/2016  12:11am

    Can someone confirm how many people you see in line? Is it like 10 or like 50? haha

    azimazi 05/03/2016  12:11am

    ^^you're right. I'm glad we all have a united front on how insane this is. #AUUnite #firsttimeweallagree

    Bailee1416 05/03/2016  12:12am

    Does anyone know how many people are out there at this point?

    konah93 05/03/2016  12:14am

    I am in the same position as @littlebrowngirl went in last week for a preliminary audition and was going to come to do the same tomorrow but now this just seems absolutely insane. Any word on how the line is looking?

    Billy_shakes 05/03/2016  12:15am

    Yep it's true. People are lined up with lawn chairs....saw it with my own two eyes.

    KRodB 05/03/2016  12:15am

    Yep it's true. People are lined up with lawn chairs....saw it with my own two eyes.

    KRodB 05/03/2016  12:16am

    When I was in the area (which was around 11pm), there were at least 10 people in line already. My mouth DROPPED! This audition is going to be crazy....just like Motown's open call. I expect massive amounts of people.

    KRodB 05/03/2016  12:21am

    5:15am UPDATE

    Line should be in between 70-100... People are all cluttered between umbrellas so you can't tell.

    NO UNOFFICIAL LIST

    ILikeTheIslandManhattan 05/03/2016  5:15am

    O hell no. Over night?!?!?! in the rain to sing?!?!? Calm down brown ppl. u know we pull in at most 2 hours before the audition time, Not 12 hours!!!! Lord have mercy on your chords. I should go just to instagram these fools. #GoodGodGirlGetaGrip

    randomblackboy 05/03/2016  6:37am

    So Chelsea Studios opens at 8. Anyone think they'll let us in then?

    JessicaJones 05/03/2016  6:59am

    Are they letting ya in the building?

    DontSpeak 05/03/2016  8:06am

    Should people still show up? Any updates on line?

    pacoguy7 05/03/2016  8:29am

    We are inside it is very chaotic at the moment trying to figure out whats going on with the list while everyone is warming up together.

  • LIBERTY - off-Broadway @ other 05/02/2016  7:27pm

    Hey all -

    Our AEA contract and concession require us to hold two full days of EPAs for the upcoming off-Broadway production of LIBERTY - this Tuesday (5/3) and Wednesday (5/4). If history is any guide, we imagine this call will be pretty open and a VERY good chance for EMC and non-Equity performers to potentially be seen...

    If you're in the realm for the available roles, we hope you can come in. Please note, we ARE hiring swings so, if you could cover one or more of the roles that are already cast - it might be a good idea to come in, as well.

    More details up on our page:

    tany0997 05/03/2016  3:42am

    Besides the few crazy people who slept here, it's not terrible. There are about 50 ppl at 4 am.

    Suitcase dude 05/03/2016  3:46am

    How bad would it be looking to get there by 6ish? This weather is def gonna kill my voice if I'm standing outside forever lol

    rosed 05/03/2016  4:26am

    I'm here it's about 5am - line is half way between 6th and 7th Ave so I would say over 100 people

    Littleboo 05/03/2016  4:58am

    Still no unofficial right?

    Suitcase dude 05/03/2016  5:17am

    No unofficial. Definitely over a hundred people. Trying to remain positive........ But this is rough y'all

    JessicaJones 05/03/2016  5:31am

    Does anyone know if Chelsea is planning on letting anyone in before 10am?

    JessicaJones 05/03/2016  5:35am

    I think so. I think they open at 8:30.

    tany0997 05/03/2016  5:38am

    I think so. I think they open at 8:30.

    tany0997 05/03/2016  5:41am

    So apparently we have two lines going. One towards 6th and one towards 7th.... This is going to be a disaster.

    tany0997 05/03/2016  5:49am

    There aren't two lines guys, no worries 😊

    Jaybird 05/03/2016  6:08am

    Went to the open call in LA today, just checking if anyone got callback appts and if it was an immediate invite or an email!

    Thanks

    Etorto

    Yes. Two of my friends, both male, just got emails.

    They said it looks like general men's sides.

    Hope that helps!

    Bump. --- even though I don't know what that means. Did I use it right? Lol
