Actors Deserve a timely “Yes or a No” from Casting Directors

Have you ever waited weeks, sometimes months after an audition to hear if you have been cast or not? Cringing by the phone, frantically checking your email every two minutes, even going through your spam and text messages to see if a Casting Director has contacted you about that latest audition. You’re stressed out because you have not heard one peep, and you’re not sure if you should audition for other theaters and gigs. You really have your heart set on that one role, company and show and may be going out of town for a long run, or on the road, or cruise ship and you don’t want to lead other casting directors or companies on by attending other auditions!

With less than two weeks approaching till the 70th annual Tony Awards, everyone is buzzing around with anticipation! In reading various predictions online about winners, presenters and performances, I then became curious as to how the active theater enthusiasts across the globe will celebrate the Tonys? 

Will you dress up and go to a swanky party in the city? Will you stand outside of the Beacon Theatre watching the Red Carpet? Will you host your own intimate party, and rent a big screen tv, larger than your apartment?  Will you be trying to sneak in parts during your intense rehearsals for Summerstock? Or will you be on the West Coast or in Europe like myself streaming it online with champagne until the wee hours of the morning?

I want to hear all your thoughts, on how you will celebrate the Tony Awards this year! The Oscars and Grammys go all out for celebrating, why don’t we for the Tonys? In theater, we have a lot to celebrate this year, in this groundbreaking year of theatrical achievements.

Theater lovers from across the country and the world will come together to celebrate the achievements in theater this year. Whether you have performed on Broadway or only in your local community theater, we can all collectively come together to celebrate theater accomplishments worldwide.
