Auditions for Vicuña by Jon Robin Baitz
Zeitgeist Stage announces auditions for roles in their fall production 2018, Vicuña by Jon Robin Baitz. Auditions are Sunday & Monday, July 29 & 30 at the Plaza Black Box Theater at the Boston Center for the Arts.
A tailor to the wealthy, powerful, and famous struggles to serve a very unusual client: a blustering real-estate tycoon and reality-TV star who—to everyone’s surprise—becomes a major party’s nominee for president. As the election spins out of control, the tailor and his apprentice are forced to examine their roles as confidants and image-makers for the candidate…and whether the right suit has the power to clinch the presidency.
