(#15) Waitress Auditions (September 28, 2016)

Aurora's headshot and her musicOn my first real day in New York (the one where I thought I was going home, but instead just stayed…), I started by auditioning for the new musical Waitress.

They wanted a Sara Bareilles-type pop song, so I just sang “Love Song.”

I’m not sure if this is a smart idea or not. Maybe a lot of people did that. Or maybe a lot of people thought a lot of people would do that, and then didn’t. Who knows.

But it’s a good song, and I was pretty early. So hopefully it was fine.

I also put it in a new key, because I didn’t realize how kinda low it is on her album (not super low, but lower than I wanted at my audition).

When I got there, it was a very easy in and out. (Yay being an Equity member!) There were tons of people, of course. I was practically stepping on people just to get to the desk to sign up.

I also saw a sign on the bathroom door that said, “No warming up in the bathroom,” which was so New York to me. When I saw that, I just thought, “I’m really here.”

The audition went well, but alas, nothing came of it. The end!

I'd love to hear from you! So whaddya say?
