Weird Romance

Inspired by the stories The Girl Who Was Plugged In by James Tiptree, Jr., and Her Pilgrim Soul by Alan Brennert

Made up of two science fiction-flavored musicals: The Girl Who Was Plugged In is about a homeless bag-lady whose soul is transplanted into the body of a gorgeous female android by a company that manufactures celebrities. Her Pilgrim Soul involves a scientist who researches holographic imaging. One day a mysterious 'living' holograph, apparently a woman long dead, appears and changes his life forever.

A musical theater actor's book (a binder filled with their audition repertoire) could easily be considered the most important external tool they have. Along with talent and personality, the material an actor brings into a room can leave a lasting impression, so it is important to find songs which showcase vocal and acting chops.
