    Plot Summary: 

    It is 1977, and a reporter for the New York Times has been granted access to the art studio and inner sanctum of actor/comedian/artist/madman Zero Mostel … and YOU are that reporter. Join the legendary star of The Producers and Fiddler on the Roof as he takes you on a wild ride through the ups and downs of his historic life – from the stage of the famed New York hotspot Cafe Society to the set of any number of great Broadway hits to the halls of Congress, where he was forced to stand up to the destructive ambitions of the House Un-American Activities Committee. And in the end, you may be left asking yourself: what is an artist’s duty? To the truth? To society? To himself?

    Character Breakdown: 

    ZERO MOSTEL (40-60): the Hollywood and Broadway legend come to life. Mercurial and grounded, warm and aloof, intelligent and earthy, charming and dangerous. All well-lived human lives are on a spectrum. They are many sometimes contradictory things at once. Zero is no different, but he lives all of these qualities at a ten, finding nuance in the spaces between. He is forever in performance, which is why he can tell you the truth … except when he doesn’t. This play covers the majority of his life, his childhood, his art, his famous friends, his activism, his betrayal at the hands of the industry he served, and his ultimate redemption. We must see the spectrum throughout. We are not necessarily looking for a perfect physical match, but we are looking for Zero’s specific, unique energy, or as close as we can get in an audition. I would recommend watching his movies and interviews with him in preparation.
