MAC Cosmetics seeks barihunk for Fall collection

MAC spokesmodel RuPaul and Donovan Singletary, who we think would "represent!"
Playbill has a listing that certainly caught our eye (well, actually the eye of one of our readers). MAC Cosmetics posted a notice that they are looking for a "classically trained male opera singer that has a young, hip, edgy appearance...Theatrical flair encouraged. Acting ability a plus." We of course translate that as, "MAC Cosmetics seeks barihunk."

The singer who is chosen will perform at two premiere events for their Fall Collection and must fit a size 40 jacket.

According to the listing, "The singer will need to memorize three songs that will be performed with a backing tracking and must be willing to travel. Performer must be available on all of the following days 8/23-8/25 and 8/31-9/2. MAC will cover travel expenses in addition to compensation of $1000/day. MAC will supply costuming, hair, and makeup."

Nmon Ford: Future MAC model?
Interested applicants may audition with a selection (approx. 32 to 64 bars) from one of the three arias: "Votre toast, je peux vous le rendre" from Bizet's Carmen, "Fin ch’han dal vino" from Mozart's Don Giovanni or "Largo al factotum" from Rossini's Il barbiere de Siviglia. 

Singers who are interested to schedule an audition time on July 23rd should email a headshot, resume, and any relevant links to

Selected candidates will receive a confirmation with a specific time and room number for July 23rd.

We have a bunch of singers in mind, although some of them might not be able to squeeze into a size 40 jacket.
