A conversation about the Audition

Directed and Produced by
Riad Galayini and James Morrison


In this unprecedented look at the audition, some of our most accomplished working actors reflect on the process and how it affects them.

On the surface, SHOWING UP explores the actor's audition. Looking deeper, it transcends the profession and examines what it takes for all of us to pursue what we most want to achieve in life.

SHOWING UP offers a thoughtful and revealing narrative compiled from more than 50 interviews with notable artists including: Kristin Chenoweth, Richard Griffiths, Zoe Kazan, Nathan Lane, Chris Messina, Sam Rockwell, Bill Irwin and Eli Wallach.
