BREAKDOWN
SEEKING:

ROLAND

30ish, male. An attorney. Nerdy but attractive. A workaholic, Roland is driven, ambitious, goal-oriented, and smart. He is good-hearted but rather naïve about life outside of work - his goal at the top of the show is happiness via career advancement. Personally, he is very ill at ease with women to whom he is attracted. He knows nothing about caring for a dog when he gets one. His relationship with his puppy, Cupid, helps him see that happiness may instead be found through a meaningful relationship. Tenor.

MIRANDA

A dog trainer. Mid-to-late 20s. Perhaps somewhat tomboyish in appearance, Miranda is ultra serious about her job, and doesn’t much care if people are offended by her spiky, no-nonsense manner. Having rejected the privileged lifestyle in which she was raised, she is especially disgusted by many of her clients’ entitled attitudes and assumes most of them won’t take her training seriously. As far as she’s concerned, everything Roland says from the moment they meet (until a revealing personal conversation) affirms this perspective. Her tough, all-business outer veneer covers up vulnerability and a great desire for love. Belter with a soft/sweet low range.

GUY

30ish, male. Roland’s best buddy. Could be played by a range of physical types. A legend in his own mind with women, Guy always has sex on the brain, and is frustrated when rebuffed (which has been happening frequently lately). He probably was a popular and successful high school jock, and is still much more into play than work. He is indiscreet and inappropriate at times, but good-natured and a loyal friend to Roland. Bari-tenor.

BLAIR

mid-to-late 20s, female. A hedge fund manager and the gorgeous, sultry object of Roland’s desire. Blair is an ambitious workaholic who – at her young age - has risen very quickly in high-level financial circles. She is bright, articulate and engaging – and also has a wild side that is not revealed until her first date with Roland. Soprano.
