Cast of Characters:
Please note that we’re looking for a diverse company, and may not stick to the ethnicities of the original cast.
ANGEL DUMOTT SCHUNARD – (Male, 20-30 years old, Strong Dancer, Range: C3 - A4) The eccentric HIV-positive street drummer. A drag queen with an incredible gift of dance and a magnetic personality. He becomes Tom’s lover.
BENJAMIN COFFIN III – (Male, 25-35 years old, Range: Bb2 - F#4) The landlord of Mark and Roger’s apartment building. A former roommate in the loft, Benny traded in his personal morals for power and wealth.
JOANNE JEFFERSON – (Female, 25-40 years old, Range: G3 - E5) A public interest lawyer and headstrong lesbian. She is smart and purposeful in all her decisions. Carries on a tumultuous relationship with Maureen.
MARK COHEN – (Male, 20-30 years old, Range: A2 - G4) Filmmaker and video artist. Knee deep in his own soul-searching, Mark is the typical young artist. He and Roger are roommates in the loft. A bit of a nerd.
MAUREEN JOHNSON – (Female, 20-30 years old, Range: C4 - F5) An unpredictably zany performance artist. Maureen oozes sexuality and used to live in the loft. She has recently dumped Mark for Joanne.
MIMI MARQUEZ - (Female, 18-25 years old, strong dancer, Range: Eb3 - E5) An HIV-positive stripper with drug addictions. Slender and sickly, she conceals it all at her job in the local strip club. She lives in the same building as the loft.
ROGER DAVIS – (Male, 20-25 years old, Range: F2 - A4) A struggling musician and former drug addict. He is reminiscent of Kurt Cobain. Roommates with Mark in the loft and battles with being HIV-positive.
