EVAN – Male, 50-60. Evan is the parole officer of both Jason and Chris. He is described as ‘comfortably puffy’. He is a character we respect because he seems to be the only one in the lives of Chris and Jason that is trying to help them move on from the mess they’ve created.

Closing: November 8, 2020

All roles available

Felicia Dantine: (late 30’s to 50’s) A tall imposing woman. She is a real estate agent with an almost carnal passion for Manhattan apartments. She speaks with a hoarse buoyant voice and a hint of Queens nasality – a jubilant New York honk.

Andrew Rally: (late 20’s to 30’s) An actor in his late twenties or early thirties. He is handsome and charming. He possesses the polished easy air of a television star. Andrew could easily glide through life wafting on a cloud of good looks and affability. He is more than accustomed to being the center of attention. He possesses a potent charm. Yet, under this charming exterior is the tender heart of an artist and man who longs for approval and yearns to be loved. Actor must be able to move well, stage combat and single sword experience a plus.

Deirdre McDavey: (late 20’s but looks much younger) She is twenty-nine years old but looks much younger. She is Andrew’s girlfriend. She is a Valley Girl imagining herself as a Bronte heroine. Deirdre must be played with a delicious comic fervor. She is a wild romantic but never a ninny. She is always on the verge of a swoon; and while she enjoys a whole-hearted swoon every few seconds she is delightfully resilient. To her life is a miracle a minute. She is a beacon of breathless wonder with a soul full of romantic enthusiasm.

Lillian Troy: (70’s) A striking silver-haired woman in her seventies. A picture of elegance who smokes unfiltered Camel cigarettes. She speaks with a regal German accent. She has a
no-nonsense manner combined with a wicked sense of humor – she delights at any sort of hijinks. She is Andrew’s agent. Her tough exterior is a cover for deep romantic passions.

John Barrymore: (50’s to 60) He is phenomenally sexual and dashing, the very image of a sly romantic hero. He possesses a witty and rakish charm combined with a wicked bounding glee, and not an ounce of pedantry. Actor must be able to move well, stage combat and single sword experience a plus.

Gary Peter Lefkowitz: (30’s to early 40’s) He personifies L.A. “shaggy-chic.” A happy overgrown child, an oddly appealing creature of pure appetite. Reality is of very little consequence to him; the deal is all. He is crass and calculating, he is never stupid. He possesses a shameless exuberance. He loves his life. He is at once appalling and irresistible. He is unafraid to speak our dirty secrets about the often too present tedium of high art.

All roles available

LAWRENCE JAMESON: (late 40’s-50) The French Riviera’s classiest con man…
stylish, British, and hugely successful. Able to charm the jewelry (not to mention the gowns) off of the world’s wealthiest women by “giving them what they want”. Seeking an incredibly charismatic leading man who has it all: classic good looks, gorgeous voice, graceful dance skills, and the acting and comic chops to go from impeccably suave to outrageously silly and keep us charmed the entire time. elegant, erudite,

FREDDY BENSON: (early 30’s) the attractive American interloper who crashes Jameson’s heretofore private party. Nakedly ambitious, aggressively loud, hilariously crude, small time con man who relies on street smarts and sob stories to make his pitch. Seeking a fearlessly funny young leading man who can pull out all the stops: sing a power ballad, rap like a white boy, pull off outrageous characters and physical comedy… and still endear himself to us.

ANDRE THIBAULT: (40’s) wry, sophisticated, opinionated, “oh-so French” chief of police. Andre is Lawrence’s right hand man and voice of reason…practical and unflappable until love unexpectedly comes his way. Seeking a comic singing actor with flair and panache, who is also a surprisingly tender song and dance man.

MURIEL EUBANKS: (early 40’s) an extremely wealthy, attractive American …quirky, funny, gullible, and utterly sincere as she willingly succumbs to the thrilling charm of Jameson and later to a surprising and touching romance with Andre. Seeking a glamorous comic leading lady with amazing vocal stylings who dances with style and grace.

CHRISTINE COLGATE: (late 20’s-early 30’s) “The American Soap Queen” – the clumsily exuberant, ingratiatingly excited, seemingly innocent heiress from Ohio who becomes the intended victim of Jameson and Freddy’s con. Christine is however far more than she seems…as she surprises the guys (and the audience) by revealing herself to be the legendary con “man” – The Jackel. Seeking a compelling comic actress with amazing vocal chops…able to convince us she’s an innocent abroad falling hard for a guy in a wheelchair-and then able to provide a totally delightful shock as she reveals she’s been turning the wheels all along!

JOLENE OAKES: (early 30’s) “The Princess of Petroleum” – the luridly wealthy, frequently married, deliciously vulgar Oklahoma oil heiress. Seeking a true triple threat comic actress – an amazing dancer who belts out a song with guts and gusto and has the comic chops to make Jolene as funny as she is obnoxious.
