Cast breakdown

DAVID- KOLOWITZ (Lead) –Late teen through Late 20’s— David is in his late teens. Strong singer and comic timing. High baritone to second tenor. Although working as a delivery boy in the Bronx with his parents. The show is story of coming of age romantically, emotionally and in his career dreams. (Young Ben Stiller--)

Most of the characters play multiple roles in the show, especially in David’s fantasies of his life as a big Star.

MR. FOREMAN- Kind, no nonsense owner of the small machine shop where David Works. 50s through 70s. He plays a major role in David’s story. He is a little bit confused by David’s energetic enthusiasm.
This is David’s day job. Character baritone.

WANDA— late teens to late 20s. She is David’s solid, no nonsense girlfriend. She is devoted to David and the idea of marrying and settling down. She is loving and smart. Her songs range from the sweet and lovely to a surprising belt comedy diatribe against MEN. Strong belt voice.

MARLOWE—50’s -60’s. Domineering, overblown theatrical director of a down on its heels theatre company in Manhattan. He is grand, and devoted to his life in the theatre. He, impatiently teaches David how to Act or to ‘overact.’ He also plays David’s Butler in David’s Hollywood fantasy numbers. Character baritone.

ANGELA MARLOWE- Late 20s to early 40’s. Marlowe’s Daughter and star of the theatre company. She is overly poetic and seductive. She survives on the passion of her art. She is a little boy crazy. Pre-Cougar.

MOTHER—50’s -60’s David’s strong but loveable Jewish mother. Is determined to make sure David becomes a Druggist. Character belt.

FATHER—50’S – 60S David’s caring and sensible Father. He adores David. When it comes to David’s dreams and is a little more understanding than David’s Mother about David becoming an Actor. Baritone.

She is Zaftig and glamorous. She is the receptionist at the Hat Company where David makes his deliveries. Strong belt and mezzo mix.
