[title of show]

Music and Lyrics by Jeff Bowen
Book by Hunter Bell
Directed by Ron Mulligan

SYNOPSIS: What is [title of show] about? It’s about ninety minutes without an intermission!
Actually, [title of show] is an original musical that chronicles its own journey from inception to opening night on Broadway. That’s the plot answer, but at its heart, this show is about four friends.
It’s about how friendships are tested and changed when life happens, when new opportunities are revealed. It’s about not being afraid to dream out loud and killing Vampires. It’s about risk and learning to be true to yourself and to your friends… your chosen family. And it’s about ninety minutes too.

[title of show] received a 2009 Tony Nomination for Best Book of a Musical. “terrific. A kick-ass time” – New York Daily News. For Mature Audiences. Adult Language & Subject Matter.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

JEFF: Male, 20-35 vocal range: G below middle C – top B; the show’s composer, a Broadway enthusiast who especially likes obscure musicals and collects Playbills from shows that ran 50 shows or less; loves bird watching, computer games and comic book heroes, especially Wonder Woman; a realist; while he has a great passion for creating, he worries about what others will think of his work.

HUNTER: Male, 20-35 vocal range: G below middle C – top B; wrote the book for the musical; dreams about making it to Broadway and one day winning a Tony Award; enjoys watching trashy reality television and 1980’s mega musicals; gets sweaty under his left armpit when nervous, and is often a little too eager to please.

HEIDI: Female, 20-35 vocal range: F below middle C – top G (above stave); moved to New York to pursue her dreams of being an actress, and out of the four friends has the most Broadway experience (featuring in a number of ensembles and understudying lead roles); the ‘new girl’ of the group, having only worked with Jeff previously; dreams of one day originating a role on Broadway, but because of her commitments with an upcoming production of “The Little Mermaid” she finds it hard to fully commit to the musical, causing tension in the group; a real good singer.

SUSAN: Female, 20-35 vocal range: F below middle C – top G (above stave); quirky and kooky; truly an individual; a Downtown artist who portrays the reality for many in the performing arts industry, maintaining a day job to support her artistic endeavors; enjoys turkey burgers, encouraging others to achieve their creative potential (aka killing vampires) and spending time with her friends Hunter and Jeff; has some doubts about her singing ability and is at first reluctant about being friends with the new girl, Heidi.
