  • JEAN -PAUL TRUFFAUT - Host and Nightclub manager,; a Frenchman with a thick accent, is sometimes slow to understand what is happening around him.  Can be played by a male or female.
  • MACK - Street-wise Stage Manager.  Typical 1940's hard-boiled, no-nonsense guy.
  • Lady LELU - glamorous nightclub singer.  Has a bit of a hard shell under her beauty. 
  • "BIG SUIT" STU - sharp -dressed gangster; his bark is much worse than his bite
  • BODYGUARD - Speaks with Russian and German accents.  A man (or woman) of few words. 
  • SWEET SUE - Ditsy girlfriend of Big Suit Stu.  Dreams of being a star, but has no talent. 
  • CHIEF INSPECTOR CONSTANTINE - Police inspector; confused, unkempt and shabby. 
  • SMITTY - newspaper reporter

For all rolls, we need actors with good comic timing; these characters are all stereotypes to the point of being caricatures. 

Preparation:

Actors will be asked to read a variety of sides. 

Actors will be asked to note schedule conflicts during the rehearsal period.
