It’s complicated but what’s simple is his love for his girls. Great singer. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.

She has a fashion sense all her own: Corduroy blazer and Hobo-style purse covered in political pins. But we don’t see that so much these days, as she spends most of her time in bed. Watching television is her happy place. She’s a wildly loving mother yet probably knows more about People Magazine than the people in her own life. Great singer. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED
[NANA] – (70s). Sarah’s grandmother. Her ladylike demeanor is contrasted by her Boston accent, love of hard jokes and even harder drinks. Should be comfortable with some singing. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED

[DR. GRIMM] – (40s). New Age-y, he’s full of shit and deep down he knows it. Great contemporary musical theatre singer. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED
[DR. RILEY] – (40s-60s). Relentlessly enthusiastic. Sarah’s psychiatrist. He barely talks to her before carelessly prescribing Xanax. Hey, it works for him! He is too happy. Great contemporary musical theatre singer. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED
