There’s a Reason It’s Called the Lead

…and it’s not because they have the most lines. 

Directors,

When you’re in the final throws of casting, it’s down to two or three choices, look for leadership to break the tie. 

Leadership takes on many forms in the audition room: 

Strong bold choices that others are drawn to follow. Remember, leadership is nothing more than influence. 

Intelligent questions that challenge everyone in the room to think harder. 

Their experience. Leaders tend to be doers, which results in a resume of action. 

As the director, you will take your cast through rehearsal. But it’s the leads that will take your cast through the show.
