Act II
June 9

Last time, 50 ladies dreaming of Broadway stardom were cut to 15... And then to 10, who met the lady that they'll be replacing. At the end of the night, one lady will see her name in lights... go out.

The 10 ladies head to the place where they'll be living. We learn that 10 girls living together... make a lot of noise. Add pink to the mix and you have a girly girl's wet dream.

Next day comes, and the competition and audition process officially gets under way with.. a call sheet. Call time is 10:30. Dress comfortably and casually. Bailey, the 20-year-old pastoral daughter from Anderson, SC... chooses to wear heels.

Rehearsal Workshop: Acting

Haylie introduces Marc Bruni, associate director of the musical. At the end of this workshop, he'll pick a standout performer. That person will get a reward that'll improve her standing in the competition.

Bailey doesn't know what casual is... Admittedly.

They start with tongue twisters, designed to improve their concentration. Try saying this five times fast without making your parents blush: "The mother pheasant plucker." Emma ends up saying "I'm a mother pheasant plucker. I pluck mother pheasants. I'm the most pleasant mother..." Yeah.

Next, we read a scene with Nicholas, a professional actor, who's reading for "Emmett", Elle's love interest.

Marc tells Bailey to kill the accent. Remember... She's from South Carolina, so she doesn't talk normally.

After the workshop, one person will get to hang out with Nikki Snelson, an actress from the show, get some pointers. That person... is Bailey. She gets one other girl to go with her. That person is Lindsey.

Now to those pink scented folders. The next challenge involves a scene with Nikki Snelson, more specifically, the Delta Nu Nu Nu scene.

Bailey & Lindsey meet Nikki (who plays "Brooke"). She's going to teach them the "Delta Nu Nu Nu" scenes. Meanwhile, the rest of the ladies are stuck to sight-read on their own.

Back to Nikki and the girls, who seem to have a grasp on the number. Also doing it with the actress who did it... that's big when you consider things like sympatico and what not.

Meanwhile, Lauren back at the loft can't stop singing "Brooke's" part. Remember, this is not the search for Brooke Wyndham.

The night before the audition, and the stress begins to intensify. Cassie O explains it best. "This is a competition and we're all fighting for the same thing. One of us will get sent home. After that, another person's going to get sent home. After that, another person's going to get sent home." Yeah, that's usually how it works. Another aspect: it's easier when you're one in 200.. But you're one in 10.

Audition: Delta Nu Nu Nu

Remember, you're acting the scene with Nikki ("Brooke"). After this audition, one lady is going home...

And if things weren't bad enough, Nikki has been given an added command from the judges... Forget one of her lines. This will allow our wannabes to be tested on whether or not they can think on their feet.

And Lindsey... clearly can't. The judges call her on this.

Cassie S. says her scene could've been better. Paul says she gets a bit stand-offish.

Celina... blanks. Seems like everyone's dropping like flies.

If Celina blanked, Cassie O... double Delta-nu-sister blanked.

Rest of the girls seem to have no problem with it... except Autumn, who picks up the dropped line a bit later.

Judges deliberating... Autumn wanted to bring out more, but she needed less. Bailey isn't delivering the right energy. Cassie O... is going by her voice alone. Cassie S... is false. Rhiannon... commands attention, but not in the way they want. Emma is "undeniably right". Lindsey was disappointing. Celina can be helped...

Now think to that song about Elle seeing her name up on that list. If you're name is on the cast list... that's good. You're safe. Seven will see their name up on that list. The other three are in the bottom and in danger of going home TONIGHT...


Cassie O, Cassie S, and Lindsey, please report to the casting office, where one of you will be eliminated.

Casting Office

This is a unique opportunity, as each of them will hear about what went wrong. Lindsey made a weaker impression. Heather buys her as a Harvard Law graduate, but not as Elle Woods.

Cassie S. has the tools and the technique and can be packaged.

Cassie O. can't work off of the actors onstage. She's very talented, but the actor needs to take it to another level.

Lindsey... is safe, leaving the two Cassies to ponder their fate.

Leaving tonight... is Cassie O. She thanks the judges and exits stage right. "If you love what you do, do it wholeheartedly. Don't half-ass anything."

Nine actresses remain... Who'll be the next Elle Woods? Stay tuned.
