SHOW SYNOPSIS
Imagine if Elaine Stritch, Ethel Merman, Patti LuPone, Bernadette Peters, Faith Prince and Angela Lansbury got together in a bar to talk about life? These wonderful ‘broads’ brought the edge and humor to some of Broadway’s greatest musicals would have plenty of ‘unfiltered’ opinions on a number of topics. And of course, they would make those opinions known…through song.

ALL ARE OPEN and will receive remuneration. The director is seeking female-identifying and nonbinary actors, ages 18 and up. Seeking actors of all ethnicity. All character ages are stage-ages and are flexible.

Rehearsals

ABOUT REHEARSALS

Tracks will be provided soon after the auditions. All performers will be expected to work on their music tracks on their own and with our Musical Director (meetings can be set per available schedules of performer and musical director) during February & early March. The plan is to know all music before full cast rehearsals begin.

REHEARSAL COMMITMENT

March 11th through April 1st: Full cast rehearsals at ProArts. Please note in most cases the entire cast will be called for all rehearsal days. We hope to work no more than 3-4 days a week during the rehearsal period. Our hope is to tighten this schedule.
