Ilana Levin may be stuck in quarantine, but that won’t stop her from singing. The creator and host of the long-running podcast Little Known Facts and Broadway’s former Lucy in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown recently returned to the stage in Manhattan Theatre Club’s The Perplexed. The Richard Greenberg play was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Levine is ready to start auditioning again.
As part of the new Playbill original series, we’ve asked Broadway favorites to self-tape (as so many actors are being asked to do) for their dream roles and Levine delivered. Here, she sings “Maybe This Time”—after a few missteps—in her audition for Sally Bowles in John Kander and Fred Ebb’s Cabaret.
Watch her self-tape audition (with help from the Peanuts gang) in he video above.
Levine has also appeared on Broadway in Wrong Mountain, The Last Night of Ballyhoo, and Jake’s Women.
