Just saw this from Backstage.com

"Wed. Sept. 3--Equity male performers who sing, 10AM.

Currently seeking: stand-by for Hugh Jackman (Peter Allen), 30s-40s, 5'11" or taller, sings to a G, excellent singer must be able to sing a '70s pop style, excellent actor, handsome and likeable, flamboyant, charismatic, and appealing, good mover, Australian accent not necessary for audition. Only audition if you are available to start immediately. "



As I'm not from the theatre industry, this is the first time I have seen the specs for standby actors in a call for an audition. Does a standby take precedence over an understudy when the principal actor is not available? Who substitutes for him on scheduled vacation leaves?

Anyone interested?

I wonder if this is also a chance for the actor to be considered for XMen3 should Hugh be too busy to go back for the next sequel Currently seeking :Standby for Hugh Jackman
