Seeking Actors/Actresses for Leads in “Our Lady of 121st” – New York, NY

York Drama Club Performing Arts Center will be holding Auditions at the end of August for an October 29th run of this amazing play. Considered the best play of the decade, written by Stephen Adly Guirgis. One Night Performance in the 1,500 capacity Theatre House. Although no pay, there will be tremendous exposure and marketing to fill this space. A reel will be made of the performance. A great opportunity to expand your talent and add to your resume.

We will be casting parts for

* Victor—male, early fifties. An older former student from Staten Island. Vic embodies the anger, outrage and feelings of powerlessness that are associated with mourners.

* Balthazar—male, mid-thirties. An alcoholic police officer. Has unresolved issues of his own regarding the death of his seven year old son.

* Rooftop—male, African American, mid-forties. Fast-talking African American radio talk show host. Seeks forgiveness from his ex-wife Inez whom he cheated on.

* Father Lux—male, mid-seventies. Legless priest. Veteran of Korean War. Not particularly pious or a very good priest but he makes it his mission to “save” Rooftop.

* Flip—male, African American, thirty-seven. gay lawyer currently residing in Wisconsin. His friends from the school in Harlem do not know of his sexuality. He is going through something like denial although he has a long-term homosexual relationship with Gail.

* Gail—male, thirty-seven. Gay. Flip’s partner. A “community theater housewife,” as Flip puts it. Think Nathan Lane in The Birdcage.

* Inez—female, African American, late thirties. Rooftop’s ex-wife, now remarried and still pissed off at Rooftop and her friend Norca, with whom Rooftop cheated on her.

* Norca—female, late thirties. Latina. “Nasty Norca.” Vicious, venomous, kind of a bitch.
* Edwin—male, late thirties. hearted superintendent of apartment building in Harlem. He’s not too bright, but loved Sister Rose very much. He spends most of his time looking after his brother, Pinky.

* Pinky—male, late thirties. Technically he’s probably brain damaged, but acts like he is mentally retarded. He has a certain way of talking, a certain way of walking etc. Incredibly dependent.

* Marcia—female, mid-thirties. Sister Rose’s niece. Kind of crazy. Neurotic, paranoid, possibly even psychotic. She has a brief love interest in Edwin.

* Sonia—female, early thirties. Marcia’s friend and the only one in the play without a real connection to Sister Rose or a real reason to be at the funeral. She’s a little naïve and kind of an emotional leech.
