Re: Male Audition Song---Children of Eden
A good rule of thumb is to first look in other shows by the same composer for audition songs. The composer of Children of Eden
is Stephen Schwartz
. I would eliminate Wicked from your consideration, as it's still too big and likely to be overused (not as much for males, but still...), and eliminate anything of his the company has done recently. If you don't find anything else Schwartz that you think would work, then start looking at similar characters to the one(s) you are auditioning for, and try to find something with a similar style of music.
I auditioned for this a couple of days ago (aiming for Yonah) and used "Easy as Life" from Aida (which isn't Schwartz, but does work for Yonah). I had considered "I Guess I'll Miss the Man" from Pippin, but just couldn't get into it enough to feel that I'd be able to wow them with it. If you know what character(s) you're looking at, I'd be willing to help you look for songs, but I'll warn you ahead of time that I don't know male songs nearly as well as female ones.
