BREAKDOWN

*The role of the Emcee has been cast.
Sally Bowles – (20-30) British accent. She is a singer, dancer and incredibly needy performer - surprisingly effective in that, seemingly, she doesn’t give a curse what people think of her. Feral and powerful. She is the essence of Weimar Berlin – haunted by horrific visions of the future - she lives large, parties without care, and has cross-gender relationships indiscriminately. She vacillates between a bright, vivid woman and a hysterical, cruel child.Finger-nails painted emerald green, hands much stained by cigarette smoking and as dirty as a little girl's. She purports to me the daughter of a wealthy mill-owner and an heiress. Vocals: Dynamic, expressive, show-stopping soloist, alto/belter, strong low range down to E or lower, belt to C. Dance style: Sexy, Isolated, Stylized Movement. In command of her body.
Clifford Bradshaw – (25-35) American. Part Hemingway, part F. Scott Fitzgerald, he is following his writer’s muse on a quest for life experience to fuel his writing. He is also a conflicted combination of observer and avid participant in the game of life. He is, or perhaps has been, exploring bi-sexuality. He is certainly a hedonist. He is also, at heart, a smart, decent guy. He eventually finds himself in over his head with underbelly of Weimar society – and catapults out of it to save himself from heartbreak and moral degradation. Baritone or Bari-Tenor. Does not need to be a strong singer, but does need to sing.
Ernst Ludwig – (30’s) German. He is a handsome and sexy European “operator” who interacts with the higher levels of society. He a member of the Nazi Party for whom he makes frequent discrete smuggling jaunts to Paris. Cliff is a potential asset to him. Sally is purely a dalliance. Vocal range flexible, ideally a Tenor.
Herr Schultz - (50-65) German Jew. Soon to be a casualty of the Nazi regime, he is a solid German citizen, plying his trade as the owner of a fruit shop. One of Fraulein Schneider’s boarders, he is a lonely widower who makes his way through life with gentle humor, sweet resolution and a shy common sense. Like so many German Jews, he is incapable of foreseeing the hatred and violence that is about to be inflicted on his race. Vocal Note: Strong, romantic soloist & harmonizer, Tenor or Bari-Tenor, high G. Basic Waltz. Partner/ballroom skills a plus.
Fraulein Schneider – (50-65) German. A widow who owns and runs a boarding house. She is dynamic and active participant in the world around her. She is feisty, curious, practical, funny. At base, she is a tactician with a romantic soul who is forced to make a very hard choice between a loving comfortable relationship with a Jew – and the safety of going forward in her older years alone. Her boarders are her family – for good and not so good. Vocal Notes: Strong soloist, expressive song interpreter. Husky, “weathered” contralto voice, low D to B above middle C. Basic Waltz. Partner/ballroom skills a plus.
Fraulein Kost – 35-50. German. She is another of Fraulein Schneider's boarders who supports herself by ‘entertaining’ sailors in her room. She, like many who ply her trade, is a hardened pragmatist. However she masks her hardness with humor, wile, and a saucy sexuality. Strong soloist, Alto to low G.Accordion skills a plus but not a must. Dance skills (ala Kit Kat Girls) a plus but not a must.
ENSEMBLE:
25-50. The ensemble will play an assortment of roles and are a combination of male and female performers. A whiff of a Nosferatu or Fellini-like strangeness. Movers a plus but not a must. Vocals and acting are the focus. Ideally, several members of the Ensemble play musical instruments. Specifically seeking Violin, Viola, Cello, Alto/Tenor Sax, Clarinet, Flute, Trumpet, Tuba, Accordion, Harp. This is a plus....not a must. Actor/Singers.
