The role of SINGER has been CAST. Seeking understudy. Also seeking a 5-piece band. See breakdown.
WE’RE GONNA DIE is a non-musical/non-play/non-concert that is not about dying. It's a celebration of the things we do, say, and sing to keep ourselves going as we hurtle toward the finish line. Through a series of stories and songs both hilarious and heartbreaking, Young Jean Lee’s WE’RE GONNA DIE, under Raja Feather Kelly's inventive direction, offers proof positive that being alive is about more than just awaiting the inevitable.
SINGER: CAST - seeking understudy. Female - any ethnicity - late 20's to early 40's. A note from Young Jean Lee about the character of SINGER: "All of the stories in this show are true, but not all of them happened to me, so although I originally performed the piece, the character of 'Singer' is not meant to be me. Instead, the show is designed for anyone to be able to perform as themselves without adopting a theatrical persona."
BAND MEMBERS: A five-piece band remains on stage for the duration of the show with the SINGER, offering asides and vocal back-up. Seeking:
• Keyboardist/Guitarist #2
• Drummer • Backup Vocals
SM positions are not available.
