BREAKDOWN

Seeking

Aaron—Late 20s-30s Male. Tenor. New Yorker. Jewish investment banker. He has never been on a blind date before. Out of his element, nervous, and trying way too hard. He is a good guy…just not necessarily good at this. Charming and a little awkward. All ethnicities.

Casey—Late 20s-30s, female. Great belt/mix voice. Daring, bold, and delightfully controversial…all as a defense mechanism; She likes to push your buttons to see your reactions. She is the focus of whatever room she is in, and yet, hides her insecurities beautifully. Comedic timing. All ethnicities.

Man#1 (Jewish Chorus/Gabe/Edgy British Guy)—20s – 40; Male, any ethnicity. GABE is the mega dude/womanizer. Has every answer to every question about women that has ever been asked. And probably has a catch phrase to go with that answer. Aaron’s best friend since childhood. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey’s past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating. Baritenor range. All ethnicities.

Woman #1 (Grandma Ida/Lauren/Female with Megaphone #2/Aaron’s Mother)—20s -40, Female, belt/mix with soprano. Casey’s sister, LAUREN is (somewhat) happily married to her highly successful husband, Kevin, and wonders out loud why Casey can’t break her bad habits and learn how to catch a winner. Constantly trying to fix Casey, Lauren is more concerned with listening to her own advice than actually helping her sister. GRANDMA IDA (Yiddish dialect) is Aaron’s dead grandmother, who feels strongly that her son should marry a Jewish woman. All ethnicities.

Man #2 (Reggie/Aaron’s Future Son/Edgy Rocker Guy)—20s-40. Male, tenor. REGGIE is Casey’s fabulously fierce gay and over-imaginative best friend. Easily sent into a tailspin of jealousy, paranoia, and drama. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey’s past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating. All ethnicities.

Woman #2 (Jewish Chorus/Allison/Google Girl/Female with Megaphone #1)—20s – 40, female. Aaron’s ex-fiancé. Gorgeous, sexy, uptight, conservative, controlling, manipulative. Must have great belt and some soprano.All ethnicities.

Man #3 (Waiter/Casey’s Christian Father/Friendly Therapist)—20’s – 40, male, baritenor. A career waiter, who dabbles with songwriting and performing on the side. A romantic. He wants nothing more than for love to blossom in his restaurant. A closet poet as well. CASEY’s CHRISTIAN FATHER is a stereotype super-Christian, praising the Easter Bunny and denouncing Judaism. All ethnicities.
