Supporting, any gender, 50s-60s, any ethnicity
A gay/gay-friendly bar owner/barkeep. Rough around the edges. Keeps his/her personal life personal. Tries to be stoic, but easily excitable.
Lead Male, mid to late 20s, Latino
Young professional who wants to be a published poet or novelist. Instead, he is a journalist for the daily news. Has led a largely uneventful life but considers himself a tortured soul.
Lead Female, 30s, any ethnicity
Hyper, loud, always slightly inebriated woman whose playful demeanor betrays deep trauma and lifelong struggle. Felipe’s neighbor.
Supporting, any gender, early 20s, Asian
Reluctant landlord to Felipe and Tiffany, elegant, straightforward, businesslike, with a Joan Crawford streak.
Supporting male, 60s-70s, any ethnicity
A true tastemaker, a dapper gay fellow who is polite but deeply judgmental and is extraordinarily well-networked.
Supporting male, late 30s, any ethnicity
Semi-famous rock star, finally about to make it big and attracting a lot of attention. Singer/frontman in his band “Boss Nova.” Doesn’t say much.
Supporting female, 30s, any ethnicity
Sad and alluring, she dresses provocatively but moves slowly and carries a lot of personal weight in her posture. Tiffany’s old friend.
Supporting male, 40ish, any ethnicity
Preppie guy who gets away with wearing dress shorts with loafers and seemingly never works but always has money and looks relaxed.
Supporting male, 30s, any ethnicity
A tattooed cowpoke. Sweet, but quick-tempered.
