ABOUT THE SHOW
Five guests attending a Manhattan cocktail party soon find themselves entangled in an array of emotions in this clever, comedic and entertaining musical production with brilliantly interwoven lyrics and melodies that celebrate award-winning composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s humor, poignancy and sophistication. The show features material taken from a number of his original musicals, presented in an entirely different context from the manner in which they were originally written including numbers from Follies, Company, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Sweeney Todd, Assassins, Dick Tracy, Merrily We Roll Along, Sunday in the Park with George and others.
Party host. Rich. Hard-working. Pompous. Big brother type to Man 2. Outwardly perfect, but inwardly miserable. Emotionally absent and tired of his equally absent wife.
Gender: Male / Baritone
Age: Late 30’s to 50’s
Party hostess. Rich. Outwardly happy but a bit miserable with her marriage to man 1. Regal and proper. Yearns to become a mother but is discontent with her distant husband.
Gender: Female / Alto
Age: Last 30’s to 50’s
Not as confident as his colleague, whom he possesses a younger brother type of relationship with. Cerebral and calculated with charm. Enjoys being a bachelor but may have a desire to become married someday.
Gender: Male / Tenor
Age: 20’s – 30’s
Party guest of Man 2. Winsome and sexy, she routinely acts out because of her 'loneliness.' Ditzy, with little book smarts, but knows how to turn and manipulate people as a sultry seductress.
Gender: Female / Soprano
Age: 20’s to 30’s
Might be played by either male or female, sings and comments on action. The uninvited party guest. Awkwardly honest with people and serves lots of unwarranted commentary. Mischievous, kooky, and forward.
Age: 18 to 40’s
