- Man 2: 1940s big band “crooner” look. He should have a strong legit lyric baritone voice and be an excellent part singer. He sings up to a G. Listen to the Sinatra recordings with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra to understand the smooth easy vocal style that is required for this role. Man #2 should also have a natural and unaffected flair for comedy as he carries much of the show’s humor and lighter moments. He spends much of the show trying to learn how to be “cool.”
- Woman 1: In some ways, her character represents the female version of Frank (“Rat Pack” period). She is a “classy dame” who drips with style, sophistication. Woman #1 has the more difficult singing role of the two women. Vocally she is a strong mezzo-soprano who can also belt. Her vocal style is based on great “torch singers” like Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne, and Judy Garland. This actress sings through a wide range vocally and must also be a capable part singer.
- Woman 2: She should be able to project an energetic and youthful sexuality to the audience. Woman #2 is the type of woman that always attracted Frank (aka Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner, Mia Farrow, etc). Vocally this character needs to have that same smooth liquid big band singer sound of the ’40s. Woman #2 is also a mezzo but does sing some soprano parts. Her voice should be lighter and provide a contrast to the darker sound required for Woman #1. She too needs to be a capable part singer.
The role of Man 1 has been cast.
