I Hope I Get It: Stories From the Audition Room With Betsy Wolfe
The Falsettos star remembers when Jennifer Hudson upstaged her at a call for Guys & Dolls.
Betsy Wolfe, one of the stars of the current revival of Falsettos, has racked up an impressive Broadway résumé over the past decade. But when she first arrived in New York, she had a bit of a bumpy start. Like so many audience members who have been subjected to public shaming, Wolfe made the fateful mistake of leaving her cell phone on during an audition for Guys & Dolls. The director was not pleased with the disruption to say the least. And to make matters worse, the custom ringer didn't exactly complement Frank Loesser's score.
