Last summer I stumbled across the web series Submissions Only on YouTube and I’m thankful I did.
This series created, written, directed and starring Broadway actors Kate Wetherhead and Andrew Keenan-Bolger is the perfect behind the scenes look at auditioning for theatre in New York City. The series follows a group of friends as they navigate the trips and falls, callbacks and train wrecks experienced while working in the business.
Series regulars include leading Broadway veterans Colin Hanlon, Stephen Bienskie, Asmeret Ghebremichael, Lindsay Nicole Chambers, Annaleigh Ashford, Anne L. Nathan, Santino Fontana, Patrick Heusinger, and Max Von Essen.
The first season attracted a slew of Broadway’s brightest guest stars including Kristin Chenoweth, Chita Rivera, Cady Huffman, Michael Rupert, Rachel Dratch, Danny Burstein, Rebecca Luker, Barrett Foa, Alan Campbell, Ann Harada, Tyler Maynard, Steve Rosen, and many more.
So far in the second season we’ve been treated to guest stars such as Jeremy Jordan, Matt Cavenaugh, Van Hughes, Mary Testa and Charlie Williams.
The entire series along with new episodes can be seen on BroadwayWorld.com.
