Diva's Lament (What Ever Happened To My Part) from Spamalot is good.

On my own from Les Mis is also good half way through when belted.

Or if you're really adventurous try No Good Deed, The Wizard and I or Defying Gravity from Wicked. But too many times have I heard these songs murdered so I'd watch out...

How about almost anything from Chicago or Cabaret

Or Lucy in Jekyll and Hyde

Or Any of Dolly Levi's songs in Hello, Dolly

I would pick these over a more modern piece unless it fits the part you want... that way you aren't just another person coming in and singing the "latest craze" I know that happens a lot with Wicked and "Astonishing"

Oklahoma from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is great, Come to your Senses from Tick Tick Boom, Always a Bridesmaid from I love you you're perfect now change... there are so many! Or there's the obv ones from Rent (Maureen or Mimi)? Hope this helps icon_biggrin.gif

i agree. i've been working on those songs from wicked but wouldn't dare to do them for auditions right now since it's so overdone. i've heard a lot of Wicked songs "murdered." even Popular! haha. well, thanks again, everybody.

Id go for Someone Like you or A New Life from Jekyll & Hyde if youve got a good belt voice you cant go wrong with these.

"Always a Bridesmaid" from I Love you, You're Perfect, Now Change, is good, as is "Happily Happily" or Shy" from "Once Upon a Mattress."[/i]
