Editorial Reviews

In this second edition of Get the Callback, Flom not only updates the first edition but shifts the focus from 'getting the job' to 'getting the callback,' which is something the prepared actor can actually control. A great guide for young actors in high schools and colleges who are embarking on their careers-but also offering good reminders for those already out in the profession-the book covers all aspects of the audition process: preparation, pulling in new material, the actual audition, how to talk to the accompanist, how to interact with the audition panel, the callback. Flom even covers aspects of the process that are often overlooked-how to read audition announcements properly, the best head-shot styles and résumé layouts-and includes an updated list of repertoire styles and genres. Finally, Flom provides sound advice about how to negotiate a job offer. In other words, this one little volume is an invaluable resource for anyone who plans to audition for a musical theater production-whether in high school, college, or professional theater.Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates; graduate students; professionals.
