Tonight on the Livestream: Broadway Casting Director, Tara Rubin

Last week on the livestream, Tony Award-winning Mr. John Rando joined us for the livestream and told us . . .

1 – What it was like turning Back to the Future into a musical


2 – How he and his entire family were some of the early USers to get coronavirus and how they struggled through it!

It’s a fun convo, so catch the replay here.

This week, we’re bringing on one of the best Casting Directors in the biz . . . Ms. Tara Rubin, responsible for putting together the talent for shows like this season’s Six, Sing Street, not to mention Jagged Little Pill, Phantom, Cats, School of Rock, and so many more.

If you’re an actor (or know one), make sure you tell them to tune in, because Tara is going to give us her tips on “How To Get Cast During COVID-19!” including the secrets of auditioning via Zoom.

Tara is on tonight, Tuesday, July 13th at 8 PM!
