Description of Character Roles
MONICA JONES — In her twenties or thirties. Would be actress and singer. Has been trying for years to get a part on the Broadway stage. She wears glasses.
DELORIS — (aka Susie Donahue) She was a teenage chorus girl when she was discovered in the Broadway adaptation of War and Peace.
GUY MARTIN — In his twenties or thirties. Began his life in the theatre as an actor, director and playwright when he had just turned nineteen. He co-wrote with his father, Terence Martin, an adaptation of War and Peace into a dramatic musical. All the plays he has written since then have been flops. Down to his last dollar, the only theatre he can get for his Play, A Woeful Love, is a burlesque theatre in Queens.
MITZI — A chorus girl who has been in one too many choruses. She’s GUY’s choreographer for his play and is not so secretly in love with him.
VICTOR SANDS — Fifties or sixties. Once a Broadway matinee idol before the turn of the century.
BILLY RADCLIFF — The stage manager, piano accompanist. GUY’s loyal friend, he’s been with him since the days of War and Peace.
WENDELL BRADSHAW — Son of the theatre owner where the play is set to open in. He’s a wiseacre who makes up to all the girls in the show, but he’s only barely in his teens.
CHORUS GIRLS 1&2
SMALL CHILD — Non-speaking part
TERENCE MARTIN — GUY’S father. A classical actor turned playwright after World War I. War and Peace was actually GUY’s attempt at a play, probably in imitation of his father who specialized in adaptations. His father co-wrote it to save his son from writing a lousy script.
EDDIE BRADSHAW — Wendell’s father and owner of the burlesque theatre for Guy’s play. He dresses like the small-time gangster that he is.
EDDIE’S BODYGUARD — (optional) Non-speaking part.
SUMMER STORM — The theatre’s resident burlesque queen.
BURLESQUE DANCERS — As needed.
PORTER — Non-speaking part.
STAGE HANDS — Non-speaking part.
