The Auditioners

Neighborhood: Manhattan

‘Scape is a new theater company that will stage ten short plays on a Brooklyn rooftop this June. To cast the plays the new theater company employed an old tradition, the audition. The plays will be outdoors and open air, but the audition was held in a small white room in a Bleeker Street cellar–closed air.

For three hours the members of ‘Scape sat in the white room with a low ceiling and a green floor. There was a video camera trained at the blank white wall against which the applicants stood when they walked in, squinting in the bright light. The door to the room was white, and it went from the floor all the way to the ceiling, like in a fun-house. Every applicant, otherwise known as actor, brought a head shot, and by the end of the night, when this picture was taken, the small table at the center of the room was littered with head shots and resumes (is “resume” a word that applies to actors? There should be a better word, “Histories,” maybe, or “Past Incarnations.”)

Pictured here: Karen Blood, Josh Dickens, William McEvoy, David Marek, Tara Anderson and Esther Bell (the Directors), plus Mike Daisey, Artistic Director and Co-Producers Joe DeMarie and Molly Townsend (standing).
