Breakdown

IMMEDIATE REPLACEMENTS:

[MALE PARTIAL SWING #1] Male, any ethnicity (late 20s – 40s). On stage in the ensemble, and covers the roles of LONNY, DENNIS, and HERTZ. LONNY: A middle-aged guy with very strong comedic timing and a commanding but comically strong rock vocal. Our narrator, he has a slightly unflattering appearance but doesn’t see it. DENNIS: He runs the famous “Rock of Ages” club on the Sunset Strip. He is caught between a rock and a hard place when German business men pressure him to sell his club. He is possibly heavyset, with very strong comedic timing. HERTZ: He is an uptight, older (40s-60) German businessman who is looking to take over Sunset Strip. He is our villain and needs to have a commanding presence with strong comedic timing and vocals. He needs to have a good German accent.
[MALE PARTIAL SWING #2] Male, (20s – early 30s), handsome rocker. On stage in the ensemble, and covers the roles of DREW, STACEE, and FRANZ. DREW: He has great comedic timing and a strong rock tenor. Drew desperately wants to be a rocker, but works as a bar back at the famous “Rock of Ages” club on the Sunset Strip until his dreams, however unrealistic, come true. STACEE: A Rock Star. He is very sexy. He is at the top of his game and just left his very successful metal rock band to venture out on his own. He has very strong comedic timing and a strong rock voice. Arrogant and charming, his life is a merry-go-round of good old sex, drugs and rock-n-roll. FRANZ: He is a young foppish German who is pressured by his father to work for his business. Good vocals and strong comedic timing.
