3 roles

ALVIN FINNEYMale25-35 y.o.African-American

Alvin is a hospital orderly in the mental ward of Mt. Sinai Hospital in 1958. He keeps a tight grip on Oscar’s whereabouts, his meds, and his rampant misbehavior; the two of them have formed an irascible friendship, akin to an old married couple. That said, Alvin has significant ambitions that extend far beyond caring for his highly unstable patient. He plans to attend an HBCU medical college, become a psychiatrist himself, and make his beloved, hard-working parents proud.

MAX SARNOFFMale25-30 y.o.White / Caucasian

Max is a sweet kid, who’s eager to please at a hundred miles an hour; in fact, he sometimes stumbles over his own enthusiasm. Thanks to his Uncle Bob – who just happens to be the president of NBC – Max has finagled his way into a job as Jack Paar’s assistant on The Tonight Show. He has a passion for MGM musicals, and loves meeting stars like Debbie Reynolds, Fred Astaire and Oscar Levant. He’s a pushover when it comes to “good deeds;”

STANDBY FOR THE ROLE OF OSCAR LEVANTMale50-54 y.o.White / Caucasian

Oscar Levant is a true “character” in every sense of the word. In his youth, he was a celebrated concert pianist & a featured player as the "wise-cracking piano player" in many MGM musicals. Now he’s hit middle-age, & he's become a raconteur on late-night television. He's got the face of a movie gangster, the posture of a sad sack, & enough scabrous wit for the whole Algonquin Round Table. This role requires playing Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue on the piano. MUST PLAY THE PIANO EXTREMELY WELL.
