I Hope I Get It: Stories From the Audition Room With Adam Dannheisser

Never try to plug the show you're currently working on during your audition for something else. logo

Once upon a time, Fiddler on the Roof's Adam Dannheisser had an audition for Broadway's The Bridges of Madison County. As if performing in front of Jason Robert Brown and Bartlett Sher weren't enough, Dannheisser unknowingly made a social faux pas that might have cost him the role. So take advice from Broadway's current Lazar Wolf: Don't try to promote the show you're working on when you're trying out for a different project. Right? Of course right.
