Found this casting notice for 'Clive'...


Didn't realize how many parts were in this play...

Casting Notice Description:

The New Group is casting "Clive." Synopsis: "Inspired by Bertolt Brecht's inflammatory play 'Baal,' 'Clive' tracks a dissipated songwriter in 1990s New York City from the hedonistic heights of seduction and consumption into an ecstasy of self-destruction. At once a celebration and a nightmare vision of life lived for pleasure, 'Clive' boasts an eclectic selection of classic American songs performed live."
