musical theatre auditions

Recommended Obscure Musicals of the Week

1. Be More Chill
- Imagine “13” and “Little Shop of Horrors had a love-child. ‘Nuff said. Also, teen depression metaphors and a hype, funny soundtrack. (Lots of great audition songs)

2. Fortress of Solitude
- "Hairspray” and “Motown”’s love-child. But better. Lots of roles for POC. Lots of roles for teens.

3. Nine
Not super obscure, but really dark, twisted, and comedic. Definitely under-appreciated. There are lots of beautiful ballads here that I never see at auditions

4. Edges
A Pasek and Paul (team behind “Dear Evan Hansen). Emotional abuse themes. Basically a masterpiece.

5. A Man of No Importance
The only Ahrens and Flaherty that no one knows. So very Broadway, and one of their best. It’s about theatre and every-day struggles. It’s really lovely.

6. Vanities
Just listen to "Fly Into the Future” and get back to me.

7. Cops
If you haven’t already heard of “The Sensitive Song”….I don’t know what you’ve been doing. Basically it’s the best guy audition song ever, especially if you’re going in for something not-so-kosher.

Broadway au where Yuuri is a lyricist and composer who is relatively successful and well-loved by fans but is known for being a cryptid.

-Yuuri never does the vocals in any of his songs for soundtracks nor does he give himself roles in any of his plays. 

-Yuuri always ends up accidentally covered in photos. It drives his fans nuts.

-Everyone knows from the rare videos of Yuuri found on Phichit’s SNS that he is a great singer and dancer. The actors that Yuuri has worked with regularly tell interviewers that he’s actually amazing on stage. 

-One day, Yuuri snaps. He’s been working on a play that is his passion project. He tells a lot of his own story through the characters, it’s got different styles of music, diverse characters, it’s unlike anything out there (think Hamilton) and he knows that if he shies away from the stage yet again he’ll regret it for the rest of his life. Before he can talk himself out of it he announces that he will be playing the lead role in his new play.

-The internet breaks.

-A few hours later, legendary actor Victor Nikiforov announces he is returning to his roots in musical theatre, and more specifically auditioning for the role of Yuuri’s character’s love interest.

-The internet breaks again.
