Post Yente audition! (first time poster)
Hi!
In a few days I will be auditioning for yente the matchmaker! My audition songs are Matchmaker and the first 16 bars of Some People from Gypsy. I am having a lot of trouble nailing the distinctive Russian/Yiddish accent. Does anyone have any tips for nailing the voice? I have played similar roles in the past (Mae Peterson in Bye Bye Birdie), so I believe I have a good handle on the personality, however it's REALLY hard for me to sound convincingly Yiddish. Any advice for me? Thank you so much :D
