Post Gershwin Audition songs?
I'm auditioning for a production of this show in two weeks, and they're asking for two musical theatre tunes ( one up tempo and one ballad) from the period of the show- preferably Gershwin ( or Cole Porter) I kinda have an idea for my uptempo song, but am having a little bit of a problem with the ballad.
I'm a soprano/mezzo, and I am aiming for either Polly or Tess, so I'd like something that shows off my voice.
I was thinking about "someone to watch over me" but I'm not sure if something from the show is appropriate?
Any feedback or suggestions?
- thanks so much!

How about "You Are My Lucky Star" from Singin in the Rain as a ballad?
I wouldn't go for a song from the show, I think directors would like to see how well the actors choose other songs or something like that. btw I love CFY, Polly is a dream role of mine. haha. I hope you get in, it's an amazing show. :)

Thanks so much! I'm looking into getting the sheet music for You're my lucky star as we speak.
Thanks again for the suggestion, and the good luck wishes.
