There will always be productions of WAOVW. Assassins is timeless, and will become more popular with age. Company is a period piece which has and will contnue to become less popular and relevant. This may be the only time that you could be in that show. So Company gets my vote.

You don't seem like the 'Assassins' type to me...

I would have to vote for Assassins, in spite of the fact that this will even up the score. Happy Solstice, Spoon.

Assassins. It just looks fun.

I agree with hugh about WAOVW always being around. However, I disagree with Company. While I've not read the script, the synopsis sounds like the subject matter could get tedious with a bunch of "talking heads" on stage. Assassins sounds like more fun. Then again, if you've never been in WAOVW, it might be a great opportunity.... Go with your gut on this one.

I'd say no on WAoVW, just because I suspect you're not old enough to play George yet, and Nick isn't nearly as much fun. Assassins might be a good time , and you'd be a good Guiteau, but it is more likely to be done again than Company. Besides, Kensington is likely to be a fairly unpleasant commute, yes?

*grin* - I am 180 degrees from oddangel on this... the script for Assassins just screamed "stand and sing your monologue" to me. I don't know the script to Company, but I do know that I like the songs in it a whole lot better.

I've not seen you do many musicals, and that might be a good way to stretch yourself (literally and artistically).

Any rule against auditioning for all 3 and only committing to one?

I vote Assassins, because I really want to see the play after reading Sarah Vowell's latest book.

Assassins doesn't get staged nearly as often as the other two. I know actors who have appeared in them and enjoyed it... but I do think that, while flawed, Assassins is a brilliantly daring work. I've gone out of my way to see four productions of it all over trhe country and, because the cast and crew knew it to be unusual, it's always been an amazing theatrical experience.

Is it going to be in the Hill or the Bolton?
