West Side

What song should I sing for a West Side Story audition?

I'm auditioning for this show on thursday, I need a male Baritenor (=P) song, anything is in my range pretty much. And i dont want to use a song from West Side Story.

Good thinking--no songs from the show, directors usually don't like that. I suggest something from another Leonard Bernstein show, like "Candide", but the majority of the male roles are tenors, except Maximilian. Voltaire/Pangloss can sometimes be played by a baritone, so some of his songs may work. Here are the songs in the show, but I only know for certain that Cunegonde sings "Glitter and Be Gay", and "Make Our Garden Grow" (love that song ♥) with Candide.

ACT I
Westphalia Chorale
Life Is Happiness Indeed
The Best of All Possible Worlds
Universal Good
Oh, Happy We
It Must Be So (Candide's Meditation)
Westphalia
Battle Music
Candide's Lament
Dear Boy
Auto-da-fé (What a day)
Candide Begins His Travels; It Must Be Me (2nd Meditation)
The Paris Waltz
Glitter and Be Gay
You Were Dead, You Know
I Am Easily Assimilated (Old Lady's Tango)
Quartet Finale

ACT II
Universal Good
My Love
We Are Women
The Pilgrim's Procession - Alleluia
Quiet
Introduction To Eldorado
The Ballad Of Eldorado
Words, Words, Words
Bon Voyage
The Kings' Barcarolle
Money, Money, Money
What's the Use?
The Venice Gavotte
Nothing More Than This
Universal Good
Make Our Garden Grow

Ozzie and Chip are baritone roles in "On the Town". Their songs are:

New York, New York
Come Up to My Place
Carried Away

Bernstein also wrote the musicals "Mass" and "1600 Pennsylvania Avenue". Although not Bernstein songs, "Make Them Hear You" from "Ragtime" and "Dulcinea" from "Man of La Mancha" are very powerful baritone solos, and capture the operatic tone of "West Side Story" without going the whole 9 yards to Mozart and Puccini. :D The latter can also be sung by a tenor, and is almost an exact parallel to Tony's lovely outburst "Maria". So if you know a Tony hopeful, you may suggest that song to him, or keep it for yourself. :P Break a leg!
