Your Chance to Be on Broadway! In Funny Costumes!
Superheroes are hot again, thanks to The Dark Knight, Iron Man, The Hulk, and Barack Obama. And now, here's your opportunity to play a superhero while singing music by Bono and the Edge and cavorting around to Julie Taymor's Tony-award-style direction. There's a Broadway musical of Spider-Man a-coming—this was as inevitable as the West Side Story revival—and it's looking for talented people to flex their muscles at an open call on July 28 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Knitting Factory at 74-Leonard Street.
Here are the pecs-y parts available:
Peter Parker: male, 16-20s, great rock voice, can be nerdy with understated sex appeal, good sense of humor
Mary Jane: female, 16-20s, beautiful girl next door, strong pop//rock singing voice
Principal Woman: female, 25-35, amazing rock vocals, think Sinead O'Connor with a Middle eastern/Bulgarian/Greek twist. All ethnicities.
You're asked to bring 16 bars of a pop/rock song that shows you're strange—I mean that shows your range—along with sheet music and (if you have it) a photo/resume stapled together. Otherwise, just paper clip it, I guess. And don't do "Corner of the Sky"!
But I strongly suggest you only try out for Peter Parker or Mary Jane, because honey, I AM Principal Woman!
