SYNOPSIS: When Max and his boyfriend Calder find themselves in a hospital awaiting Calder’s heart transplant, the nurse supplies them with a mind-altering pill that slows time, turning one minute into one hour. Fueled by a sweeping contemporary score, Nighttime Traffic follows three characters through a world of thumping music, altered perceptions, and unanticipated inspiration as they spin minutes into moments and search for solace in unsettling times. All roles require strong Actor-Singers, the score is a contemporary musical theatre sound.fcc

SEEKING:

MAX: Mid-20s, lyric tenor up to a Bb, a writer. Fun, sexual, intelligent, childlike, selfish, sarcastic, evasive, thrives in a fast moving world, but beneath it all deeply vulnerable. He recently wrote a book that was a commercial failure and has traded his writing for the party scene.

CALDER: Mid-20s, Lyric Bari-tenor up to a G, Max’s boyfriend, a teacher. Sensitive, funny, intelligent, self-aware, an old soul, puts up with his boyfriend’s bullshit and does his best to keep him grounded, finds out he has to have a heart transplant and struggles to deal with turmoil surrounding his condition.

AUDREY: 40s-50s, Alto up to C, a nurse. No-nonsense, tough exterior, dry humor, plagued by the death of her son who died many years prior, but she still possesses maternal instincts. She has seen the world, been through the ringer, and seems to carry her life experience and on her shoulders. She also concocts hallucinogenic drugs that she sells to her patients.
