DIANA: Late 30s to early 40s – bipolar – delusional – manic depressive. Still, attractive, appealing, quick witted. Vocal range G below middle C to high G – strong mix to a D.

NATALIE: This role is cast.

DAN: Early to mid 40s – Diana’s husband – good looking, patient, kind, but exhausted by family circumstances. Vocal range B below written middle C to high A full voice and to high D flat falsetto.

GABE: Diana’s son, must read 18. Charming, fun, energetic, carefree. He’s a ghost, or actually part of Diana’s delusion. Vocal range C (written middle C) to high A full voice and high D (above staff) falsetto.

HENRY: Must read 17. Natalie’s boyfriend, romantic, a musician, solid, but lazy. A “stoner”. Vocal range low A below written middle C to high G full voice and high A falsetto.

DR. MADDEN/DR. FINE: Played by the same actor. Age range 35-50. Dr. Fine is a psychopharmacologist, practical, maybe a bit cold. Dr. Madden, Diana’s psychiatrist, described in the script as a “rock star” in that way that doctors can be perceived as saviors, confident and unflappable. Vocal ranges low A below written middle C to high A flat full voice.
