BREAKDOWN

Based on the critically acclaimed play that inspired the now classic film, this streetwise musical will take you to the stoops of the Bronx in the 1960s—where a young man is caught between the father he loves and the mob boss he’d love to be. Featuring an original doo-wop score by Alan Menken, this is a tale about respect, loyalty, love and above all else: family.
Seeking:
CALOGERO: (Adult actor 18+ to play 17) A young likeable Italian-American teenager. He steps in and out of narrating the show. Excellent singer (tenor or very high baritone, with a flair for 60s rock-and-roll) who moves well. Principal.
SONNY: (30s/40s) Italian. The number one man in the neighborhood. He’s the leader of the wise guys. Powerful and charismatic. Strong singer; full voice to G above middle C a plus, should be “at home” with stylings of Frank Sinatra / Tony Bennett / Dean Martin / Bobby Darin. Principal.

LORENZO: (30s/40s) Italian. Calogero’s father. Strong and sympathetic. He works as a bus driver. Excellent tenor or high baritone; ability to express honest emotion while singing more important than vocal fireworks. Principal.
YOUNG CALOGERO: (child – must believably play 9 yrs. old) – Calogero’s younger self. Excellent singer who moves very well. Principal.

ROSINA: (30s/40s) Italian. Calogero’s mother. Sensible and beautiful. Strong singer, warm mezzo or alto voice preferred. Principal.

JANE: (Adult actor 18+ to play 17) African-American. Calogero falls in love with her. Striking and smart. Excellent singer who moves well; should be completely “at home” as the lead singer of a girl group. Principal
