An obituary writer meets a stripper when their immediate attraction to the other literally comes to a collision in the middle of a road. He soon writes a romanticized novel inspired by her life, and when he poses for the inside of the book jacket, meets Anna the photographer. Dan attempts to seduce her, and upon her rejection, poses as her in a cybersex chat room with a guy who introduces himself as Larry the doctor. Dan manages to set up a meeting with Larry, not knowing that Larry actually goes and Anna serendipitously happens to be there. After a brief realization of how they were duped, the two then eventually become a couple. Over the course of four and a half years, these lives grow in their own way and yet intertwine sporadically and purposefully while they “struggle to find intimacy but can’t seem to get closer.”
An “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” adaptation
Directed by Bryan Keith
The Nightman Cometh is a stage adaptation of not only the “It’s Always Sunny” episode of the same name, but a mix of a few episodes leading up to The Nightman Cometh. The show is a comedy centered around Charlie Kelly, a borderline illiterate co-owner of Paddy’s Pub, trying to find a way to make The Waitress fall in love with him. With the help of his friends, Dennis, Mac, Dee, and Frank, he tries forming a band in order to win her over and ends up going as far as to write a musical in order to woo her. The show will run approximately an hour and fifteen minutes and some of the characters require some musical ability.
I’m looking for people who can deliver funny lines well and who can improvise small bits of dialogue to make the conversations in the show more realistic. In the actual television show, the characters cut each other off frequently so I’m looking for people who can instinctively interrupt others when appropriate. Although the show involves some music, it is not a musical and the only characters who need to be good singers are Dennis and Dee. Other than that, Charlie must have a higher voice in general and he and Gladys must be able to play the piano.
Dennis – A co-owner of Paddy’s pub and twin brother of Dee, Dennis is narcisstic, selfish, and vain. He easily let’s his ego get in the wa! y of his friendship with the gang and tends to only do things if he can get something out of it. Tenor.
Deandra (Dee) – The main bartender at Paddy’s pub and twin sister of Dennis, Dee dreams of being an actress although she lacks any real talent. She’s often the target of ridicule from the rest of the gang. Soprano.
Mac – A co-owner of Paddy’s pub, Mac is a childhood friend of both Dennis and Charlie. He is frequently trying to demonstrate how tough he is and brags about his hand-to-hand combat skills although he’s never actually taken any lessons.
Charlie – A co-owner of Paddy’s pub, Charlie is a childhood friend of both Dennis and Mac. Charlie is a borderline illiterate, alcoholic, and substance abuser. He is found to have some hidden talents behind all his problems though he still cannot win the! affection of The Waitress, the woman he stalks. Tenor. ! Must be able to play piano.
Frank – Frank is the legal father of Dee and Dennis and may be the biological father of Charlie. He has had success in various illegal operations but chose to abandon his successful life to share a tiny apartment with Charlie. Frank is a short, heavier man who has a tendency to go to extremes with things.
The Waitress – The Waitress is the nameless woman of Charlie’s affection. She finds Charlie repulsive and creepy as he tends to stalk her frequently.
Artemis – A friend of the gang, Artemis is Charlie’s assistant director in “The Nightman Cometh”
Gladys– Gladys is an old, senile woman who the gang uses for various schemes. In this case, she’s the pianist for Charlie’s “The Nightman Cometh”. Must be able to play piano.
Nine is a musical set in 1960’s Venice about film director Guido Contini, who is getting ready to start production on his next film. He has a set, actors, costumes, but no script or plot. Hmm.
As Contini tries piece together a movie, he has to navigate through the chaotic network of re! lationships with women that defines his life: his neglected wife Luisa, desperate mistress Carla, fatigued museClaudia, his deceased mother (who occasionally appears for advice), his passionate (but violent) producer Liliane, and the prostitute who took his virginity as a child, Saraghina, in addition to the hordes of women who are all desperately in love with him.
Prelude to a Kiss
Peter, a remarkably unremarkable publicist, and Rita, a bartender with an edgy sense of humor, fit perfectly together. Their fiery affair hits a speed bump when Rita switches bodies with an old man during their wedding reception. Peter takes Rita’s body with the old man inside on their honeymoon where he i! s dismayed by her sudden personality change. Now the two lovers must find each other again and pull through the confusion, mistrust, and doubt which threatens to drown their relationship.
He was a boy, she was a girl.
