Female actors to perform in Parallel Lives by Mo Gaffney and Kathy Najimy. This is a stage version of the popular Kathy and Mo Show. Applicants should possess strong comedic acting skills as well as the ability to transform character quickly. Both women will play men, women and children. Dialect work a plus. Although the piece is comprised of sketches they are not without substance, both satirical and dramatic. An emphasis on sincere performances that draw out the comedy and pathos is placed at a premium.
