Characters:

Man 1 and Man 2: Bobby Darrin super fans. Bronx boys from the neighborhood. 

Woman 1: Stands in for Sandra Dee, Connie Francis, and several of Bobby’s loves. Can play instruments with the band.

Casting Note: While parts can be adapted as needed, I think it is important that the female role has to play the bass. The music is demanding and each individual performer must be charismatic in their roles
 
Setting: A Vegas-type cabaret or lounge. Should be large enough for the band to be on stage. 

Performance Royalties are based on theater particulars. Please fill out an application for a personalized quote. 
 
Billing responsibilities, pertinent copyright information, and playwrights' biographies are available in the show rider that comes with your license agreement.
