BREAKDOWN

BARBARA: (Age range 23-39.) A wise-cracking, gum-snapping, nail polishing hairdresser. Very dishy and put together, though on the cheap side.

MIKEY: (Age range 23-30.) A preppy-looking, eager-beaver who’s a capable and earnest undercover cop. Gets his hair washed and blown dry at every performance. It may need to be cut by a professional.

TONY: (Age range 25-40.) is the flamboyant, irrepressible proprietor of the Shear Madness salon. He is fun, devilish, interesting, passionate and a real character. He must not be jaded in any way. His “shoot from the hip” comedy must endear him to all. He must be able to do the physical comedy easily and with great flair. Must love “playing for an audience”. He must love creating and executing merriment, and mirth.
EDDIE: (Age range: 30-45). A well-dressed, nice-looking confidence man who covers a dangerous interior with a smooth, suave, and occasionally charming exterior.

NICK ROSSETTI (or NICK JOHNSON or TOM O’BRIEN depending on ethnic background). (Age range: 30-40). A hardworking “gumshoe” detective. A bright, quick thinking, personable character actor who can also be an excellent straight man. It requires an actor who is not intimidated by a boisterous audience. It requires a good looking, masculine actor with a solid voice and solid acting skills who can learn the dynamics that will keep the investigation on track.

MRS. SHUBERT (Age range: 45-70) An old-money Washington socialite of impeccable breeding and manner. She must speak with natural— not artificial— cultured tones. She can really turn on the charm when needed. At her finest she’s a real class act.
