DAVID- KOLOWITZ (Lead) –Late teen through Late 20’s— David is in his late teens. Strong singer and comic timing. High baritone to second tenor. Although working as a delivery boy in the Bronx with his parents. The show is story of coming of age romantically, emotionally and in his career dreams. (Young Ben Stiller–)
Most of the characters play multiple roles in the show, especially in David’s fantasies of his life as a big Star.

This is David’s day job. Character baritone.
WANDA— late teens to late 20s. She is David’s solid, no nonsense girlfriend. She is devoted to David and the idea of marrying and settling down. She is loving and smart. Her songs range from the sweet and lovely to a surprising belt comedy diatribe against MEN. Strong belt voice.
MARLOWE—50’s -60’s. Domineering, overblown theatrical director of a down on its heels theatre company in Manhattan. He is grand, and devoted to his life in the theatre.
