"Fanny" is a pretty old musical, so it would qualify as "legit." To me, legit means non-contemporary, or not of this decade. NOT "Wicked" or "Legally Blonde" or even "Rent" - nothing pop sounding. You should stick to composers like Rogers & Hammerstein, Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Rogers & Hart, Jule Styne, etc...Think of all of the musicals that were made into movies by MGM Studios.
What song were you thinking of from "Fanny"? Is the audition for a particular show or a theatre season? I usually choose my audition song based on the show and role I think I'm right for.
