Audtion Pieces for NYC--YOU help decide!?


Two weeks from now, I'll be heading up to NYC for another stint of auditions for Broadway Musical Theatre.

I have A LOT on my plate right now, and would like some suggestions on pieces to perform for 16-bars.

I have a wide range, but am most comfortable as a mezzo soprano (having performed as Eponine, Fontine, Marguerite St. Just, Elphiba, Lucy, Maria Von Trapp and others).

I refuse to do anything from Les Mis (although I LOVE it), Wicked, or Phantom.

I was thinking the following:

"A New Life"- Jekyll and Hyde

"Hold On"- The Secret Garden"

"I'll Forget You"- The Scarlet Pimpernel

if you have other suggestions, please note them. You also might get a better idea of how I sound from a clip at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmShBKTp4...



Thanks so much for all the help!!

Reply:I have a suggestion and you don't have to take it, but I tend to favor this one particular song. Though I haven't auditioned on Broadway (or even in NYC) before, this song is classic and fun.

"Give My Regards to Broadway."

By: George M. Cohan.

I'm not able to listen to your singing right now, but it was just a suggestion.

What do you think of these quirky nature names?


Clematis (Clemmie)










They are mainly flower names in English or different languages.
What do you think of these quirky nature names?
Clematis (Clemmie)-Clemmie's a cute nickname for a baby but i don't think either of them are good for an adult

Saffron-i like it. I knew a little girl with this name and her parents called her Saffy.

Fiore-sound elegant and french. Good.

Posy-It sounds like Pansy which reminds me of the blonde girl from the queens nose. I prefer Pansy to Posy.

Tansy-I love the name but my sis went to school with a girl called Tansy who now pregnant with twin and shes 16 or 17.

Astère-Space age

Marguerite-I don't like it.

Achillea-It would sound nice when said by someone with a sexy european accent.

Ivy-Pretty. Reminds me of a kind hearted, full of energy old lady who is sitting in a conservatory winding flowers through fences.

Clemencie-I don't like it.

Reply:If you want to plant a flower garden these would all be great flowers to plantl. If you want to name your child and have her not be teased or have her name misprounced for her whole life than don't use any of these. Ivy is a ugly name, Clematis is like clitoris, Posy will be called Pose her whole life, Tansy will be called Teenie Tansy, Marguerite will sound like the drink, Achillea sounds like your achilles tendon, Fiore sounds like fire, Saffron makes me hungry. So sorry no go here.
Reply:I love Tansy!

And as for children being bullied, I partly agree that it is not necessarily because of their name, but I think in some situations it doesn't help. I went to college with a girl called Iona Hoare and she survived!

I also love unusual names, and would like to think that I will chose less common names for my future children, however there are certain names I would not chose due to bullying ammunition....
Reply:Clematis - I dont like this at all

Saffron - I think its a nice name, when I hear it I picture a girl with ginger hair in bunches and freckles :) lol

Fiore - I'm not too keen on this as a name

Posy - as above

Tansy - as above

Astere - how would you pronouce this? I cant really comment as I dont know the pronounciation but the spelling looks nice.

Marguerite - I've never been too sure on this name. I think its okay if the person uses a nickname like Maggie or Marge

Achillea - dont like it. I think "achilles heal" when I hear it!

Ivy - nice and simple. I like it, I think it would suit a longer middle name; e.g. Ivy Alexandra, Ivy Clementine

Clemencie - I dont like it


My favourites are Ivy and Saffron
Reply:Clematis (Clemmie) - is awful

Saffron - is pretty but every girl i have ever met called saffron has been a chav.

Fiore - ok

Posy - cute

Tansy - pretty

Astère - nope

Marguerite - pretty, the french for margaret

Achillea - not reallt

Ivy - its ok but sounds a bit old

Clemencie - sounds like a medicine.

clementine is pretty but marguerite is my favourite form you list. how about; violet, lilly, rose or willow instead though.
Reply:Clematis - no, clemmie sounds awful

Saffron - funky, I've actually got a cuz called this.

Fiore - Like it

Posy - sounds like a rag doll

Tansy - nope

Astere - similar to esther but not too bad.

Marguerite - yeah can see it as a name.

IVY - no, its a granny name, conjures up pics of old women.

Clemencie - sounds too much like clementine

Achillea - sounds too much like a tendon
Reply:Clematis and Clemencie sound like diseases..sorry. I don't really like Achillea or Astere. THe reast are ok. Favourite probably Fiore. The others seem kind of old-personish.
Reply:I like Ivy best it's my sister's name :) but I love all the other ones too, especially Fiore and Saffron (reminds me of 'Mellow Yellow').
Reply:Okay, if you're dying for a name that you can nickname Clemmie, then may I recommend Clementine? Clematis sounds like an STD, sorry!! I love Ivy and Marguerite though.

Best Wishes!!

A poem for you to consume. Is it OK?


A Circle of Friends

by TD Euwaite

I came here one year ago today

To my dismay, the place was figgen’ crazy

I put in my two cents

And lost ten points…a bad start

I tried philosophy, psychiatry

And all the other maladies

I turned to recipes and trigonometries

But still, no one would talk to me

Race Cars, Gay Bars,

Areoplanes and Ships to Mars

It seemed the harder that I tried

The more I realized, I was a square

Then I came to poetry

A place where girls frolicked

…Some freely

Then the dudes, Todd, Dondi and you

Plastered up some beautiful stuff

I read and watched and listened in

To lessons taught by Cinn-o-min

Then I met a Totem tall

And heard from Paris, a gentle call

I got out some notes from long, long ago

Posted a couple of poems to show

I asked if I’m gentle, tender or sweet

“Oh, Yes!” was the word from dear Marguerite

Then, on a plane, along with Elaine

Game poets from Lisbon, Enid and Maine

A Spitfire flames, Arkansas rain

Again and again, they all joined in

Frazzizco, N’ork, Cabool and Brisbane

Buk with a cluck, Stooge with noodge

Tyler and Skyler and Suffolk’s bug Scrooge

All joined in some with some poetic sploodge…

The Moon and the Son

Guys with big guns

I can’t list them all

From Mary to Shelley

They’re all not too smelly

Now, deep in the mud

In by bright yellow Wellies

They fill up me pipe

And round out me belly

A poem for you to consume. Is it OK?

I haven't stopped by in a while.

Great to see you still contributing. This brought back memories of my newbie days where, like your good self, I found a comfortable place in poetry corner.

Tanx for the piece and for the peace. Nice to see that you still got that auld sea shanty'esque allegory going with the pipe filling and yellow wellies.

Must get the finger out and post some recent scribblings.


Reply:Alobar sits in the corner

Alobar tries not to cry

Alobar is still a foreigner

Alobar does not know why

Alobar posts his work

Alobar critiques for the good

Is Alobar considered a jerk

Or simply not understood?

Just kidding. Nice appreciation piece.
Reply:A lot can happen in a year. It feels like a YA generation is 3 months--so, it's almost equivalent to the history of the US.

I stop writing online for about 4 months and I feel like it's been forever.

Good memories...I'm glad you're so consistent here TD.
Reply:To Sakira_S......no, not chopped up, or unexplained. Things that happened a year ago. 'The Minion".

I so wish I could have been here then! To begin is hard...

To continue and make better is even harder!

We can do it!
Reply:A very good circle of consumption, but we all have something that you don't have in your circle TD. That something is TD Euwaite. Thanks for sharing this one.
Reply:That was so lovely to read....so lovely.....the way you got into a company of good friends...and this dear poetic circle...sometimes memories can be so sweet and gratifying like this...you took me to a world with this poem!!
Reply:I love this! Friends met on the hike. Much like a rucksack through Europe.

I do wish you had remembered me, just a little bit.
Reply:I have consumed this with delight. It was and is delicious. Those who are gone are not forgotten, the path goes both ways.
Reply:It's more a memoir poem than anything else. And I don't feel the love or meaning in it, not really. It feels chopped up and unexplained.
Reply:Oh dear...so many memories. All in one year. I came here on April 1 last year... There was no poetry section yet.
Reply:My heart has consumed it indeed. Beautiful memory and a lot of fun to read.
Reply:TD, done well this assemblage of words.
Reply:I love you too...i miss the chaotic crowd that we once had here. (without fights, hatred, prejudice and trolls that is...)
Reply:"Stooge" with "noodge?" "Shelley" with..."smelly?" Have you no shame, sir? Have the last few tatters of literary competence and common decency been ripped away from the fabric of your life?

P.S. I feel exactly the same way. In only a few short weeks, I honed in on this section as the most rewarding, thanks to the participation of many wise and talented people such as your self. Y/A has become important to me.

One major spelling error here. The correct form is "Noo Yawk."

A clarification for the benefit of the preceding contributor. The conditions of jerkiness and being misunderstood are not mutually exclusive. I can think of one or two shining examples among our coterie. (No names please, that would be chatting.)

Looking for a book ??

  • Where can i find ebooks of maya angelou?

    Maya Angelou was born on 4 April 1928, as Marguerite Johnson. She knows why the caged bird sings, and is only one of two American poets to write and read an inauguration poem for a president. The other one was Robert Frost for John Kennedy. Happy Birthday to Maya.
    Where can i find ebooks of maya angelou?
    I will repeat what I just told someone else. Ms. Angelou is in the business of selling books. They will not be in public domain until SEVENTY YEARS after her demise. To download books illegally puts the person whose name is on the internet service at your home in danger of getting caught and fined. To steal a book of Ms. Angelou's online is exactly the same as walking into her home and stealing a TV. Both her books and her TV are her possessions. If you cannot afford the books, there are libraries. It is very nice that you wished her happy birthday, and I second you on that, but do NOT steal her books. Pax - C.

    Please help me choose pictures to go for the 4 changes of metamorphosis of a character?

    I have used Eddie from Five People You Meet In Heaven and I need pictures to go with each explanation. Any ideas?? These are the 4 stages:

    Eddie’s first metamorphosis was guilty. When Eddie died and went to heaven, he met the Blue Man. The Blue Man made Eddie feel guilty stating he caused his death by giving him a heart attack. Eddie ran into the street to get a ball and Blue Man swerved not to hit him, but he felt anxious and had a heart attack.

    Eddie’s second metamorphosis was angry. In heaven, Eddie learns that his former Army Captain died after he shot Eddie in the leg to help get out of the fire alive. He was angry because he wanted to save a child he thought he saw in the burning building, but found out the Captain died trying to sacrifice his life to save him and the other soldiers.

    Eddie’s third metamorphosis was relieved. He meets up with Ruby in a diner and she is the person who the pier is named after, Ruby’s Pier. Ruby teaches Eddie to let go of his anger he had for his father and explains to him that his father caught pneumonia by saving Mickey’s life instead of killing him for almost hurting his mother. Eddie realized his father was being loyal to his friend and went and told his father everything is okay now.

    Eddie’s fourth metamorphosis was blissful. He was walking into different wedding receptions and found his deceased wife, Marguerite. They had a long coversation about love. She explained that even when people die, their love doesn’t and that she loved him even after she died because true love is forever.
    Please help me choose pictures to go for the 4 changes of metamorphosis of a character?
    I'm not sure what you are needing. Are you looking for already done paintings depicting things like guilt and bliss, but without Eddie in them? Are you planning on drawing pictures yourself and need a scene? Are you looking for some kind of modern art graphics that express certain emotions? Background colors could be black for guilt, red for anger (with orange and yellow flames), aqua for bliss and peach for relief.
