The Hollywood Reporter: Broadway Dancers Push for Return to In-Person Auditions as Industry Eyes Hybrid Model

Actors’ Equity is taking another step forward in bringing back in-person auditions for theater performers.

For the first time since the pandemic began, the actors’ and stage managers’ union will reopen its audition centers in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles starting Nov. 17. This is meant to encourage more producers to hold in-person calls, ahead of a coming mandate, after some performers expressed frustration with virtual auditions due to the cost involved and the feeling that their tapes were not being watched.
