Post Audrey II audition song
This isn't for a couple months yet, but I'm trying to think ahead here. The local company is doing Little Shop, and I'd love to voice Audrey II. I'm a bass with a pretty good range (F4-Bb1) so I should be able to handle the part all right, and I could swing Mushnik or maybe even Orrin.

Problem with The Voice role is that I'm drawing a blank on "songs like it." What on Earth is there? Frankly, I'd be happy to just go in and rip out "Suppertime," but I know that's a no-no.

Suppertime is a no-no because it involves the urchins.

First off - Avoid any songs from musicals that are really popular and/or currently running on Broadway. Second- Audrey II is a very r&b type singer, so when you're looking for a song, I reccomend a very upbeat, high-energy song. Break a leg! \:D/

Yeah, I got the part and did the show... four years ago.

Ended up singing "My Friends" from Sweeney Todd, IIRC, but it's so far back now, I can't be 100% sure. And then at my first Todd audition, I did "Feed Me," on the theory that One Good Show about eating people deserves another.
