All Roles: (Lead)

Full Character Breakdown

Aaron

late 20s-30s Male. Tenor. New Yorker. Jewish investment banker. He has never been on a blind date before. Out of his element, nervous, and trying way too hard. Must have great comic timing.

Casey

late 20s-30s, female. Great belt/mix voice. Daring, bold, and delightfully controversial. All as a defense mechanism. Must have great comic timing.

Gabe/Edgy Rocker

25-35; Male, any ethnicity. GABE is the mega dude/womanizer. Has every answer to every question about women that has ever been asked. And probably has a catch phrase to go with that answer. Aaron's best friend since childhood. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey's past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating. Baritenor range.

Lauren/Grandma Ida

25-35, Female, belt/mix with soprano. Must have great comic chops, shoud have soprano and a great belt. Casey's sister. LAUREN is happily (somewhat) married to her highly successful husband, Kevin, and wonders out loud why Casey can't break her bad habits and learn how to catch a winner. Constantly trying to fix Casey, Lauren is more concerned with listening to her own advice than actually helping her sister. GRANDMA IDA is Aaron's dead grandmother, who feels strongly that her son should marry a Jewish woman.

Reggie/British Guy

late 20s-30s. Male, any ethnicity with great comic chops, tenor. REGGIE is Casey's fabulously fierce gay and over-imaginative best friend. Easily sent into a tailspin of jealousy, paranoia, and drama. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey's past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating.

Waiter/Casey's Christian Father

35-45. Male with great comic chops, bari/tenor. A career waiter, who dabbles with songwriting and performing on the side. A romantic. He wants nothing more than for love to blossom in his restaurant. A closet poet as well. CASEY's CHRISTIAN FATHER is a sterotype super-Christian, praising the Easter Bunny and denouncing Judaism.

Allison

25-35, female, must have great comic chops. Aaron's ex-fiance. Gorgeous, sexy, uptight, conservative, controlling, manipulative. Must have great belt and some soprano.
