Having never before cast a film or television series, we posted our casting breakdown to BackStage, ActorsAccess, and NY Castings with trepidation. Would anyone even submit? This was the make or break, but the only thing broken was our expectations: within the first 24hrs, we had more than 1,000 submissions. Within the week: 4,000. The truly mind-boggling part? We were only casting 7 roles.
Perhaps it was beginner’s luck, or maybe the timing was right and it was just a relatable story? Whatever the reasons, what an affirmation to see The Verge listed on Backstage print and online as one of their top weekly castings! Not bad at all, especially considering we were featured in the same column as Sting’s Broadway debut.
