Role Description

Levee: (Lead) his flamboyance is sometimes subtle and sneaks up on you; his temper is rakish and bright; he lacks fuel for himself and is somewhat of a buffoon; an intelligent buffoonery, clearly calculated to sift control of the situation to his grasp; his voice is trident and dependent on manipulation of his breath; he gets skill and talent confused; he plays trumpet in Ma's band, and plays wrong notes frequently. Note: Music will be recorded, but skill in this instrument would be a plus.
