Sex, guilt and bold accusations permeate this provocative tale from award-winning playwright David Mamet. Two lawyers find themselves defending a wealthy white executive charged with raping a black woman. When a young legal assistant gets involved in the case, biases are revealed and what is simmering underneath explodes to the surface.
Late 30s-early 40s, Successful lawyer, smart, savvy, cocky and confident. Attractive and alarmingly charming. A verbal wizard. Likes to win and is used to winning. Takes no prisoners.
Late 40s-mid 60s, Attractive older man, wealthy and carries success well. Soft-spoken, rather unassuming. Not the sort of man you would expect to be a rapist. Smarter than his attorneys, but doesn’t play that card. He must come across innocent, moral, sincere.
Late 20s. African American beauty. Knows a lot more than she shows. Has played the corporate game to get ahead. Plays her cards close to the vest. Knows that she’s attractive and has played that card too. She has secrets and that has to be a surprise.
(The role of Henry Brown is cast)
SINGLES GIRLS GUIDE
A world premiere musical
Book: Gordon Greenberg
Music/ Lyrics: Tommy Newman
Co-Directed by: Gordon Greenberg and TBA
1st rehearsal: 2/5/13. Runs: 3/1/13 – 3/30/13
In the stylish world of 1964 Manhattan, newspaper columnist Emma Woodhouse is still single and about to turn 29. As her father urges her to marry and her editor urges her to toe the line, Emma has other ideas and begins to dish out advice that promotes change and happiness as a single girl – not necessarily with the benefits of a wedding ring. Scandal, romance and chaos ensue in this delightfully fizzy concoction sure to delight audiences.
20s-early 30s. Charming, smart and relatively clueless about romance, Emma is determined that change is far better than the status quo. She’s been bred to be charming and beautiful, but shewants her own voice – her own path to success – with or without a man. Filled with the energy of the 60s, this is one smart gal – with a pioneer spirit – who will meet her match on her adventure into the unknown. Soprano belt/gutsy who can bring the house down.
Late 20s-early 30s. A dental hygienist from Rhode Island in love and in need of help. Mousy, kind, conventional and stuck in a rut. Adorable, Charming. Unassuming. Appears plain but blossoms with Emma’s assistance. Mezzo/belt.
Miss Sipkins/Truman Capote/as cast:
Female. 40s-50s. A middle-aged chameleon must be versatile enough to play Miss Sipkins, the perfect office wife with plenty of wit and charm AND do an impersonation of Truman Capote, the infamous host of the sublime Black and White Ball. Earthy, smart, observant, savvy. This part has the potential to steal every scene with heart and a great sense of fun. Alto/belt.
30s-40s. Dashing, charming, decidedly single, successful managing editor of a major paper with a balance sheet problem. He’s known Emma all his life and taken her for granted as a spoiled, rich, pretty kid not to be taken seriously, who will make someone a great wife someday. Never-been-in-love Knightley gets caught up in the changing times and in the whirl that is Emma, learns something about women and his own heart. Baritone.
30s. Extremely wealthy, Texan bachelor who comes to NYC looking for love, fun and success – and if it’s all in the same female package, so much the better. Okay, he may be a wee bit smarmy, but he’s so good looking, funny and charming, you forgive him anything. Country feel to his singing. Baritone.
60s. Emma’s dad and publisher of the paper. Traditionalist. Warm and loving, he only wants the best for his daughter. He’s a lovable chauvinist who has risen to the top of the game with 50s values firmly in place. Loves his daughter most of all – and demonstrates it’s never too late to fall in love. Baritone.

1st rehearsal: 3/26/13. Runs: 4/19/13- 5/19/13
Raw and electrifying, RED ignites the worlds of art and commerce. Iconoclastic Mark Rothko, the misanthropic abstract-expressionist painter, confronts his decision to accept a lucrative commercial commission, drilling his new assistant about the dangers of selling out as they work together. As the play develops, the roles of student and teacher reverse, forcing Rothko to face his own demons about reality and his ultimate place in the pantheon of great artists.
50s-60s. Charismatic. Mercurial. Passionate. Articulate. Knowledgeable. Self-destructive. Talented. Visionary. Jealous and self-involved. Actor has to be somewhat physically imposing with a lot ofvocal versatility and strength. This is a journey on which Rothko commands attention.
20s. “The apprentice.” Intelligent. Observant. Serious. Curious. Frightened, but not enough to stop learning. Ken is capable of true understanding and therefore is the ultimate student, who finallysurpasses the master. Quiet inner strength and passionate bursts when necessary. Physically strong, verbally adroit.
In addition to these plays, Capital Rep will be seeking actors to participate in NEXT ACT, a three-day play summit dedicated to new work. Next Act takes place November 2, 3, and 4. The summit will included readings of 2 plays and 1 musical. Titles will be announced right after Labor Day.
