It appears we have our 2nd Bliss Theater main production show: Havana!
I believe Warren Carlyle also developed After Midnight for the Escape.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
This is a production exclusively developed by Warren Carlyle for the Norwegian Cruise Line to be performed at sea. This will be the maiden voyage for this exciting new show! Cast members will work closely with Warren Carlyle in mounting this new production - There were 2 workshops done prior and we are now looking for the original cast for ¡HAVANA! Warren Carlyle (Broadway credits include: On the Twentieth Century, Hello Dolly, Smokey Joe's Cafe, She Loves Me, Christmas Story, Hugh Jackman, After Midnight, Follies, Finian's Rainbow, A Tale of Two Cities, Okalhoma, The Producers...)
We are seeking exceptional Singers/Musical Theater actors. Familiarity with Latin American music a plus. Please prepare a 'Latin Style' song of your choice. Please have sheet music in the correct key. Select vocalists will be asked to learn sides from the show and possibly stay and dance. Please bring form fitting dance wear for the dance segment of the audition.
ENRIQUE: 40s – 50s, male. The founder and owner of the nightclub. Affable. An expert MC and an expert host. Great at repartee. Think Don Francisco without the sleaziness. Strong acting and vocal skills required. RANGE: TENOR 2
XIOMARA: 20s, female. The ingénue. Innocent and earnest. Learning how to navigate the world. We see her grow from wide-eyed and slightly spoiled to a young woman beginning to grow into her generosity and her poise. Strong belt voice required. RANGE: POP MEZZO SOPRANO
DOUG: 40s, male. A beer drinker. RANGE: CORONA to IPA.
DONA TITA: 40s – 50s, female. The grand diva. Queen of the nightclub. Sings with a voice of authority and experience. Think Olga Guillot in her prime. Strong and imperial. RANGE: ALTO
BEBO: 20s, male. A stagehand. From the provinces. Impossibly sincere and hopelessly clumsy. Tangles himself in his own words. Think a young Cantinflas or Charlie Chaplin. Handsome. The right performer is a strong, comedic actor with some clown training. Should be funny and heartbreaking when he is just walking across the stage. Comedic singer RANGE: BARITONE
MIGUELON: 20s – 30s. A crooner. Son of a bootlegger. The most seductive man in Havana. So handsome you dream he isn't a cad but when you get to know him later it turns out he is a cad. Of course he is. With looks like that he was condemned to be. Strong singer. RANGE: TENOR
FABIOLA: The character is not yet 20. Female. A chorus girl who is clearly on her way to a bigger career. Fierce dancer with a strong, amazing voice. Oozes sensuality. Think of a young La Lupe. A tornado on stage. RANGE: MEZZO SOPRANO
SQUIZZY SIEGEL: 30s to 50s, male. A gringo mobster from Chicago. Good character actor required.
