Role Description

Effie: big gospel sound, high belt, a vocal force; a brilliant and immature talent with a big ego and a lot to learn; sensitive, aggressive, easily wounded--and with a questionable work ethic, she nonetheless takes a huge journey in the show toward adulthood and a focused sense of her own power; needs to be sensual and is likely not skinny; she need not be fat, but there does need to be a reason that Curtis goes for Deena as the star over Effie--in terms of physical sales power; great mover.
