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 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

    Any info on this yet? They start at noon, not sure when I should show up.

    So I’m here and there’s no audition. Not sure what’s going on but they aren’t in the studio listed and the staff don’t have them on the books for today, just Tuesday.

    R U at the Pearl Studios on 519 8th Ave?

    pollzee 04/22/2018  12:16pm

    So to confirm...looks like it's just a mix up in location? Posting says 500 but it's at 519 correct?

    JS924 04/22/2018  12:17pm

    Actually don't listen to me, posting also says 519 I apologize.

    JS924 04/22/2018  12:19pm

    Guys this call is messed up. I showed up at noon at 519 (the correct location). I waited around until 12:30 and there was nobody there. So I left. I don’t know if this was supposed to have an equity monitor or if it was going to be run by the show itself but there was nobody there. And I was in the correct location. Now I’m wondering if they’re over at the other studio at 500. It’s a mess. I’m saying f*ck it and just going on Tuesday. At least it’s beautiful outside

    I got up for this? 04/22/2018  12:29pm

    Try 500 por favor

    Jule 04/22/2018  12:45pm

    Can anyone confirm whether there IS or IS NOT an audition happening today? And if it's happening, where? THANK YOU!

    EeeZee 04/22/2018  12:51pm

    I am heading over now and will check both studios

    JS924 04/22/2018  12:55pm

    This is for sure happening at Pearl 519 on the 12th floor. They are very nice. There are not many people on the alt list and a few equity appointments are available later in the day.

    MuchMore 04/22/2018  1:17pm

    Thanks muchmore! Do you happen to know if there's a non-equity list? Or if there were just a ton of people there waiting (that we can assume are non-equity). Trying to figure out if it's worth running to after my brunch waitstaff shift ends uptown!

    Oh yeah 04/22/2018  1:22pm

    This is a lighter day, but seems to be moving slowly due to lengthy sides. Monitor announced no non-equity will be seen but dropoffs will be taken. Stephanie Klapper is in the room along with the writer and director.

    Bardboy18 04/22/2018  1:50pm

    Non union will not be seen.

    JS924 04/22/2018  1:52pm

    Any EMC get seen?
