Billy Butler, Producer and composer of GAY BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, has scheduled a second EPA for the NYMF production. This is the show that was the subject of much consternation among Equity members when casting director Daryl Eisenberg “tweeted” throughout the audition day. Mr. Butler immediately understood the negative impact this had on members who were auditioning and has scheduled another audition to take place on Monday, August 17 from 9:30 to 1:30 at the Equity Audition Center. Mr. Butler will be in attendance at those auditions.

AEA Statement re Twittering @ Auditions
On Fri Aug 14, 2009, representatives of AEA had a productive meeting with Ms. Eisenberg to discuss her use of twitter in auditions. AEA firmly believes that twitter is a valuable promotional tool for producers to reach a wide potential audience but that tweeting has absolutely no place in the audition room, which is a safe haven for actors who are seeking employment in this competitive market. We believe this incident is now closed.
