City Center is seriously committed to an entirely diverse cast for each of the productions of the 2019 Season. Show #1 CALL ME MADAM Music and Lyrics by: Irving Berlin Book by: Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse Concert adaptation by: Bill Russell and Charles Repole Director: Casey Hushion Choreographer: Denis Jones Musical Director: Rob Berman Rehearsal: 1/22/18 Open: 2/6/18 Close: 2/10/18 NOTE: CALL ME MADAM originally opened on Broadway in 1950. A satire on politics and foreign policy that spoofs America's penchant for lending billions of dollars to needy countries, it centers on Sally Adams, a well-meaning but ill-informed socialite widow who is appointed United States Ambassador to the fictional European country of Lichtenburg. While there, she charms the local gentry, especially Cosmo Constantine, while her press attaché Kenneth Gibson falls in love with  Princess Maria. While still set in the Truman administration, the production will bring a fresh take on this political satire. ________________________________________ Show #2: I MARRIED AN ANGEL Music by: Richard Rogers Lyrics by: Lorenz Hart Book by: Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart Director/Choreographer: Josh Bergasse Musical Director: Rob Fisher Rehearsal: 3/5/18 Open: 3/20/18 Close: 3/24/18 NOTE: I MARRIED AN ANGEL originally opened on Broadway in 1938. Originally starred famous ballerina Vera Zorina. Set in Budapest, Hungary, in the late 30s, the story centers on a wealthy banker, Count Willie Palaffi, is love-weary. He ends his engagement to Anna Murphy, swearing that the only girl he could marry would be an angel. A real angel soon flies into his life, and he marries her. It turns out, however, that she is free of the human failings that permit people to tolerate each other. In particular, she is unable to fib. Her honesty alienates Willie's high society acquaintances and his biggest customer and causes a run on the bank. His sister, Countess Palaffi, saves the day by teaching the angel about the real world. She also bribes taxi drivers to make Willie's creditors late, so that he has time to save his bank. Willie and his now Earthier angel live happily ever after. All actors must have experience in high style witty romantic comedy. ________________________________________ Show#3                                                                                                                                               HIGH BUTTON SHOES Music by: Jule Styne Lyrics by: Sammy Cahn Book by: George Abbott and Stephen Longstreet Director: TBD Choreographer: TBD Musical Director: Rob Berman Rehearsal: 4/23/18 Open: 5/8/18 Close: 5/12/18                                                                                                                                     Note: HIGH BUTTON SHOES originally opened on Broadway in 1947, starring Phil Silvers and Nannette Fabray.

The honest folks of New Brunswick welcome the flimflam man home with open arms. There he bamboozles Mr. and Mrs. Longstreet out of some money by running a shady property development deal. Once discovered, the wacky chase to catch Floy brings everyone to Atlantic City before the conman loses all on a football game.

Seeking:Nick Abtahi: Male, 30s to early 40s; a college professor from D.C. of mixed Middle Eastern heritage: half Lebanese and half Persian; he’s a “fish out of water” in this small Midwestern town; when threatened he proves remarkably resourceful and surprises himself with the risks he takes; he has recently broken up with his girlfriend, who lives in San Diego, and was on his way to surprise her with a visit when his car broke down; he can be quick witted and discovers that he’s actually quite good at improvisation when pressed; that’s great news because he’s going to need every bit of resourcefulness to get out of this jam; along the way there does seem to be a spark growing between Nick and Jane; actors of Middle Eastern decent only, please. Must have an innate sense of humor. Jane Simons: Female, early to late 30s; a bartender with a great ear; she’s proud of the town she grew up in, but she’s also feeling walls closing in around her heart; she’s been away to big cities, but she’s found that “morons” come from all walks of life; she’s come back to take care of her mother’s estate, but days turned to weeks and became years, and she’s still here; she’s running out of options, and has made a mistake or two – Evan was one of them; still, she wants to do the right thing, and like Nick, surprises herself when pushed to the extreme; she’s smart, and usually rational, but sometimes extreme situations call for extreme measures; along the way there does seem to be a spark growing between Jane and Nick. Must have an innate sense of humor. Evan Weathers: Male, late 30s to late 40s; Evan is a loud, boisterous, and pugnacious guy who is frequently intoxicated; not the brightest light bulb in the pack, but trying very hard to be on top of it; he wears his heart on his sleeve, and has probably had it broken once or twice; likeable, inventive, can be intimidating; raised on the Fox News version of America, gullible, fiercely loyal to his friends, and proud to jump to conclusions; must have an innate sense of humor. Comfort with physical comedy a plus. Derek Carmichael: Male, early 20s; a young man with perhaps just a hint of an emo/goth appearance; Derek is indefatigable; he’s felt like an outsider all of his life, and wants nothing more than to be away from this town; he’s not afraid of death, in fact he’d find it a relief from this “hellhole of a town” – at least death would be “trying something new.” He’s surprisingly resilient given all he’s been through; you just never know who’s going to stand up to be a hero. Must have an innate sense of humor. Terry Burton: Female, 30s to early 50s; a sheriff up for re-election; twitchy and excitable, she’s filled with adrenaline; she lives life a little bigger than most, loves her little slice of authority, and aspires to bigger things – mayor, governor, senator? Who knows what can happen to your career if you can just catch a terrorist in your own small town; though she considers herself quite a few rungs up the ladder from Evan, she’s also a gullible Islamophobe, and prone to jumping to conclusions; she’s doing the best she can for herself and for America, given her set of circumstances. Must have an innate sense of humor. Comfort with physical comedy a plus.
