Looking for 5 actors to play the following characters:
Allen Felix (M) – late 20s/early 30s. Woody Allen wrote this role for himself. While it is not necessary to be a physical match for Mr. Allen, it helps. Actor must also be to understand the rhythm in Woody Allen standup.
Bogie (M) – Humphrey Bogart. Must look and act like Humphrey Bogart.
Linda Christie (F) – Late 20s/early 30s. Diane Keaton originated the role, which was written by her then-lover. The wife of Allen’s best friend. She’s a lot like Diane Keaton. AT
Dick Christie (M) – Late 20s/early 30s. Uptight investment real estate guy who doesn’t pay his wife enough attention. Also Allen’s best friend.
Nancy/Sharon/Sharon Lake/Gina/Vanessa/Go-Go Girl/Intellectual Girl/Barbara (F) – Late 20s/early 30s. One woman will be playing Nancy (Allen’s ex-wife) and all the other female roles. The conceit is that every woman Allen tries to date…winds up looking like his ex-wife. In reality, most of these roles are quite small, and bringing a volunteer in for rehearsals seems counter-productive to that volunteer’s time. This actor will have a LOT of stage time, and really stretch their abilities, however. And…they will stretch their ability to change clothes/wigs VERY quickly. This will be a fun challenge.
