Role Description

Rhoda/Doris: (Lead) alto or mezzo. Rhoda (Andy’s mother) is a southern girl who married a self-absorbed man, gave birth to a son, and spent all her time carefully teaching the boy all of her many neuroses. An racist and anti-Semite, though she'd be shocked to hear it. Acutely aware of the sacrifices she's made, which cost her so much and for which she will never feel the least bit appreciated. Doris (Mags' mom) is an upper west side New York widow; over-privileged, over-educated, over-analyzed, probably over-indulged. She adores her daughter, but has managed, anyway, to make Mags a world-class neurotic.
