Post Female Audition Song--belt or legit?
I'm not entirely familiar with the show, so I'm not sure what type of song would be more appropriate for an audition. Belt (I'm thinking Suddenly Seymour or My New Philosophy [yes, I know they're overdone...:P] ) or more legit (Somewhere that's Green, or something along that line)

Suggestions appreciated!

Depends on what role you are going for. Rosie and Kim are the two main female roles. Rosie is a mezzo/belter,and Kim is very much a typical soprano/ingenue.

I'm also considering Happy to Keep his Dinner Warm, because the style seems to be a bit similar in general. Would that work for either character?
