BREAKDOWN

Joe Jessup/Pyotr Illych Tchaikovsky
– 50s. JOE is quiet and diligent: a closeted high school Earth Science’s teacher, and a man who understands the value of patience and self-negation. He is used to not getting exactly what he might wish for. TCHAIKOVSKY is a musical genius, homosexual (though not openly), enormously charismatic, deeply emotional, explosive. By turns sullen, petulant, demanding, and more than a little exasperating.

Nancy Klein/Antonietta Dell’era
– Around 40. NANCY is a high school English teacher, very warm and open. She laughs too easily, probably cries too easily as well if anyone were ever around to see. DELL’ERA is Prima Ballerina of the Imperial Ballet. A voluptuous woman with majestic hauteur. MUCH larger than life. She speaks with an almost ludicrous Italian accent. Must also sing as part of a three-part a cappella vocal arrangement of “The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”
Marc Maynes/Modeste Illych Tchaikovsky/Consort
– MARC is a gym teacher, 35+, not un-charming, but a man who honestly believes valuable life lessons can be learned in dodgeball. MODESTE is a businessman who wishes to be an artist. Sharp, a little sly, and not sentimental: a good balance for his brother. CONSORT is in service to the Sugar Plum Fairy. Must also sing as part of a three-part a cappella vocal arrangement of “The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”.
Sasha Illynovna Davidov/Sugar Plum Fairy
– 40s. SASHA, sister to Pyotr and Modeste, is placid and quite beautiful: a truly porcelain face, which seems to rest in a fixed calm. A riding injury has left her in constant pain and hopelessly addicted to opium. SUGAR PLUM FAIRY – a version of the fairy from “The Nutcracker”. She is somewhat ethereal and, for the purposes of the play, represents a vision of grace, innocence, and redemption. Must be able to dance en pointe.
Blaine/Vladimir “Bob” Levovitch Davidov
– Early 20s. BLAINE is a young gay runaway, working for a phone sex chatline. Unpredictable, a little lost, always testing boundaries. Coltish, boyishly sexy. BOB, son of Sasha, nephew to Modeste and Tchaikovsky, a still unformed and naive young man; unsure which road to take, unsure if he will take any. Must also sing as part of a three-part a cappella vocal arrangement of “The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”.
