Audition: Everything an Actor Needs to Know to Get the Part Paperback - 2003

by Michael Shurtleff; Introduction by Bob Fosse

What Stanislavsky was to acting, Michael Shurtleff is to auditioning. The complete book on how to audition for the theatre.


From the publisher

The casting director for Chicago, Pippin, Becket, Gypsy, The Graduate, the Sound of Music and Jesus Christ Superstar tells you how you can find your dream role! Absolutely everything an actor needs to know to get the part is here: What to do that moment before, how to use humour; create mystery; how to develop a distinct style; and how to evaluate the place, the relationships and the competition. In fact, Audition is a necessary guide to dealing with all the auditions we face in life. This is the bible on the subject.

Shurtleff served on Broadway as casting director on David Merrick Productions including Gypsy (1959), Irma La Douce, A Taste of Honey, Becket, and Do Re Me (1960), Carnival! (1961), Stop the World I Want to Get Off (1962), Oliver! (1963), 1776 (1969), Jesus Christ, Superstar (1971), Pippin (1972), and Chicago (1975). In addition to casting the films All the Way Home (1963), The Sound of Music (1965), The Sand Pebbles (1966), and the film version of Jesus Christ, Superstar (1973), Shurtleff wrote screenplays and directed Call Me by My Rightful Name (stage 1963, film 1973). He also cast the critically acclaimed television series starring George C. Scott and Cicely Tyson, East Side/West Side (1963), and the brilliant casting of Dustin Hoffman as the lead in the film The Graduate (1975).
