As much as possible, try to enjoy auditioning; otherwise it might show.Getting SeenIn Los Angeles, it's next to impossible to get seen for most projects unless you know the casting director or someone involved. In New York, it's slightly easier. Therefore, I recommend immersing yourself in the New York theater scene. It's literally on every block. Focus on the smaller theater companies, showcases, and play festivals that are holding auditions around the city. There is no excuse for an actor to not stay engaged while in New York.
